Sign up to the free 10 Minute Shake UpShake it up

Children and young people should achieve a total of at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity each day, but many are not achieving this recommended target. The 10 Minute Shake Ups break this hour down into manageable chunks for both kids and adults, making it both achievable and fun.

Ordering a free Shake Up activity pack, full of brand new play-along games inspired by some of their favourite characters from Disney Frozen, Disney and Pixar Toy Story and, for the first time ever, Marvel!


  • The 10 Minute Shake Up campaign aims to inspire children to rebuild confidence in being active, develop new and longer-term physical skills and, most importantly, have fun!
  • As well as playing the games, this year the 10 Minute Shake Up website is hosting an online quiz to help kids, with their parents, find sports and activities they might enjoy.
