Challenge your family to move more

Challenge your family to move more
The challenges below will get your family moving and will help make being physically active a part of everyday life. You can also check out our handy tips for more great ways to get started.


  • Collect a bag of leaves (remembering to jump around in them) then take the leaves home, glue them to strips of cardboard, and staple to make a beautiful crown.

  • Set some challenges for the kids. Who can spin the hula-hoop 10 times? Who can jump rope for a whole minute? Who can juggle a soccer ball ten times?

  • Play some classic fun games such as an egg and spoon race, a race with plastic cups of water balanced on everyone’s heads, a three-legged race or even a tug of war.

  • Set up a ‘crazy golf’ course using items from around the house, like blocks, cushions, cardboard boxes and plastic cups for the holes. Stage a family tournament!

  • Make time to be active as a family in your backyard or local park and play some sport such as cricket or footy, or have a running race.
