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.


  • There are lots of things you can do at home to build strength. Why not try using tins of tomatoes as hand weights?

  • Try to mix things up - play with a frisbee or skipping rope, or go for a jog while the kids ride their bikes.

  • Join up with another family at the park and form teams to play a game of cricket or soccer.

  • Physical activity doesn't always need to be organised sport, or going to the gym - it can be as simple as finding fun ways to move your body.

  • Get the kids involved in the garden. They can help with tasks like digging holes for plants, carrying watering cans or raking leaves into piles.
