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.


  • Try to limit how much time you and your family spend sitting down during the day. Get moving and play a fun game instead - plenty of ideas can be found in our Resources.

  • A fun way to get active while reading with your kids is to read a book out loud and act out parts of the story. If a character is running, you could run on the spot or around the house too.

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

  • Making your own playdough isn't just great, squishy fun for the kids; it helps develop their fine motor skills. Try this playdough recipe.

  • Build a small garden together as a family - the kids can have fun and learn as they decide which plants to grow in the garden they helped to build.
