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.


  • Make a pledge to limit your family’s screen time. Make the most of time spent together and have fun by playing games or getting moving in some way.

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

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

  • Your little ones will love opportunities to practice their kicking and catching balls, climbing and balancing with you.

  • 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.
