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.


  • Activities like running, jumping, hopping and skipping are all important for kids' development.

  • Try to limit how much time you and your family spend sitting down during the day. Get moving and play a fun game instead - plenty of ideas can be found in our Resources.

  • When playing outdoors, you don't need toys or expensive exercise equipment – improvise with household or garden items such as brooms, rakes, empty plastic bottles and so on and set up your own obstacle course. (Just make sure kids have sun protection, such as sunscreen, hats and shade.)

  • Looking for some indoor fun for the kids? Construct a village together out of toys, boxes or things around the house and let the little ones make up a story about a day in the village.

  • Rediscover classic playground games with your kids, like hide-and-seek, follow the leader, stuck in the mud, or tip/tag games.
