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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Challenge your whole family to see how many push-ups, lunges or jumps you can all fit into five minute bursts. See if you can beat your best time week after week.

  • Get the family to do three different activities listed in the Resources section by the time your family's Good Habits for Life program is finished.

  • Enjoy the swings, slide and other equipment in your local park. Pretend the bark is hot coals and see if each of you can cross the play area without touching the ground.
