Build your best day!

In 2016, the Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Children and Youth were released. The first of their kind in the world, the guidelines outline what a healthy 24-hour period looks like for children and youth.

To bring the guidelines to life, ParticipACTION and their partners developed BuildYourBestDay.com - a fun, interactive and educational tool to help children and youth aged 5-17 and their parents learn about the Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines.

The digital experience allows kids to choose from a variety of whimsical and real-life activities to build their best day and understand how much Sweating, Stepping, Sleeping and Sitting they need each day to be healthy.

To help parents, educators and others understand the value of the new guidelines, a resource toolkit was developed, which includes the following: 

  • Posters
  • Printouts of icons
  • Fact sheets
  • Activity pages
  • Matching games
  • Colouring sheets 
  • Certificates
