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 your little ones moving to music or try action songs like 'Head-Shoulders-Knees and Toes'.

  • Play with the family dog. Kicking or throwing the ball for the dog will keep everyone on the move. After all, if anyone can keep up with the kids, it's your dog!

  • 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 you're able to pick the kids up after school, why not head straight to the park for some fun time together?

  • Encourage your kids to grow strong bones and muscles by getting them to skip, hop, run and jump.
