Tips to help your family sit less and move more

We’ve got a whole library of practical tips to help you and your family get moving! Keep it fun by trying out some of our challenges, too.


  • Rediscover classic playground games with your kids, like hide-and-seek, follow the leader, stuck in the mud, or tip/tag games.

  • If you're driving for more than two hours, stop, revive and survive. Stop at a park or rest area so you can all get out and move.

  • If you're getting active for the first time or just starting out and feel a little nervous, trying new activities together as a family is a great way to help support you and overcome any fears.

  • Try to limit the time your kids spend sitting or lying down. To get the kids moving more, get the kids to move in the ad breaks of their favourite TV show.

  • A great way to get the family moving together - especially something that makes you huff and puff a bit - is to play a game of tag together. For more game ideas, check out our downloadable Resources.
