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.


  • Short bursts of play and activity with your kids can quickly add up. Every little bit counts!

  • On your little one's birthday, include a present that involves being active. A hacky sack, Frisbee, skipping rope or football are all great options.

  • Set aside a morning for a brisk walk around the lake with the family - the kids can take their bikes or scooters.

  • Get your family into some fun activities that strengthen their muscles, like swinging on monkey bars, playing tug-o-war or gymnastics.

  • You and your little ones can have great fun playing with simple household items like boxes, pots, pans and hoops to encourage reaching, stretching, crawling and moving. Put your stray plastic lids or containers into a bottom drawer for them to play with!
