Fun Ways to Get Active

Whether it’s playing with friends or family, or taking part in sports and other physical activities, being active is good for everyone!


Have fun!

Sounds simple but the basic rule is that sport and activity should be enjoyable.

Handy Outdoor Action

Keep a football, basketball or tennis ball handy to grab on your way outdoors for an easy 20 minutes of fun.

Enjoy Variety

Encourage kids to try a range of sports and activities to develop a range of skills and find one or two that they really like.

Take the Lead

Kids take cues from their parents – so make activity a regular part of your family routine.
