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.
Plant some pegs in an area of your garden, then let the kids dig for ‘buried treasure’ using old spoons – they’ll be entertained and active for hours. Check out our Resources for ideas on how to get the family moving outdoors.
Get the family to try a new activity that you haven't tried before, or haven't done for a while. It may be a sport you can play together, going for a bike ride or even taking the family on a hike up one of Canberra's beautiful mountains.
Mix it up by getting the kids to choose an activity each weekend for a month that the whole family can do together. It might be bike riding, a scooter ride or a game of tag in the backyard.
Grab some chalk and take the kids to the footpath or driveway outside for some old playground games! There’s hopscotch, snakes and ladders, handball... you can even draw a bullseye on a wall as a target for ball throwing practice.
