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.

  • Set your phone or computer alarm to remind the family to stand up and get moving every 30 minutes when you're at home. You could all march on the spot together or even go for a short walk around the house or the block.

  • Try mixing things up - go bike riding, play touch footy at one of your local ovals, go swimming at a public pool or go for a brisk walk (or even a light jog and see if your kids can keep up).

  • Looking for some indoor fun for the kids? Construct a village together out of toys, boxes or things around the house and let the little ones make up a story about a day in the village.

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