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.


  • Kids aged four or under should limit watching TV or playing electronic games for entertainment to no more than an hour per day.

  • Next time, instead of rewarding the kids with TV, computer or electronic games, why not reward them with balls, kites, skipping ropes or something that gets them active?

  • Blow bubbles and make a game of the kids chasing, catching and popping them. Make a tally of how many bubbles they catch and see if they can catch one more each time!

  • If you're self-conscious about your body, start by being active with a partner or friend - or your whole family. Strength in numbers!

  • Short bursts of play and activity with your kids can quickly add up. Every little bit counts!
