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.


  • Get more out of 'tummy time' - lay on the floor with your baby and place toys around them to encourage grasping, reaching, leg kicking and head lifting.

  • Once you've started and you're being active on a regular basis, you'll find it gets easier.

  • Regular physical activity helps to strengthen your bones.

  • Encourage your kids to create, imagine and choose their own play. They'll be learning creative play and independence (e.g. climbing a tree or building a cubby house out of chairs under sheets).

  • If it's raining outside, why not pretend to be the weather? Swirl like the wind, stomp and clap like thunder, or dance a sunny jig to chase the clouds away!
