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.


  • 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.

  • By incorporating physical activity into your family's daily life, you are on your way to a healthier weight, more energy and a better night's sleep.

  • Pretending to move like different animals is a fun way for your kids to be active, become more aware of their bodies and to learn along the way. Download our indoor or outdoor dice games to get your family moving!

  • Next time, instead of rewarding the kids with TV, computer or electronic games, why not reward them with balls, kites, skipping ropes or something that gets them active?

  • Making your own playdough isn't just great, squishy fun for the kids; it helps develop their fine motor skills. Try this playdough recipe.
