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.


  • Join up with another family at the park and form teams to play a game of cricket or soccer.

  • On long car trips be aware of screen time and switch off for a set time. Play fun games like making words out of other cars' number plates, 'I spy', or you can all sing along to music (making sure to change the rhyming words to make it a funny song).

  • Encourage the kids to try walking barefoot on different surfaces - try grass, carpet, concrete or sand.

  • Remember, doing any physical activity is better than none! Try using our Habit tracker to keep a track of how often your family does vigorous physical activity.

  • Next time why not walk to the shops instead of driving? It's a great chance to talk with your kids, or maybe even play a game of 'I spy' or 'Spot the object' along the way.
