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.


  • Your little ones will love playing with balls, bats, tricycles and kites (with supervision) – they're all activities that encourage movement.

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

  • Build a small garden together as a family - the kids can have fun and learn as they decide which plants to grow in the garden they helped to build.

  • On long car trips be aware of screen time and switch off for a set time. Play fun games like making words out of other cars' number plates, 'I spy', or you can all sing along to music (making sure to change the rhyming words to make it a funny song).

  • 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.
