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.
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.
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.
If your family is watching TV, be active while watching for 10 minutes. You could all fold laundry, stretch, do sit-ups or jumping jacks... basically anything that gets you huffing and puffing a bit.
Teach your kids two new games this week that you might have played when you were a child. Skipping rope games, hide and seek, Mr. Wolf… the list goes on. It's a great way to share your childhood and connect with your kids.
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!
