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.


  • If it's raining outside, move the fun indoors with a dance competition, play games with balloons or soft balls, or head to your local indoor swimming pool.

  • 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!

  • On your little one's birthday, include a present that involves being active. A hacky sack, Frisbee, skipping rope or football are all great options.

  • Make physical activity part of your family's routine. The more regular your efforts in keeping active, the more likely you are to stick to your new healthy active lifestyle.

  • Head to your local park and use the monkey bars for lifts or do step-jumps to add more strength building activity into your family's week. You could even have a piggy back race where you can race with the kids on your backs. Click here to find Canberra's play spaces.
