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.


  • 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.

  • Try to keep family activities varied, and be sure to let your children take turns choosing what activity the family will do next.

  • Remember, doing any physical activity is better than none! Try using our Habit tracker to keep a track of how often your family does vigorous physical activity.

  • Need something from the local shops? Leave the car at home and walk instead.

  • Blow bubbles and make a game of the kids chasing, catching and popping them. Make a tally of how many bubbles they catch and see if they can catch one more each time!
