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.

  • 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.

  • Pretending to move like different animals is a fun way for your kids to be active, become more aware of their bodies and to learn along the way. Download our indoor or outdoor dice games to get your family moving!

  • Doing physical activity as a family helps you all to stick to your new routine - it's much more fun being active together!

  • Getting the benefits of moderate exercise is not about big workouts and exhaustion. Try getting in extra steps throughout the day. Go for a walk around the block at lunchtime, meet other families for a walk around the lake or take the stairs rather than the escalator at the shops.
