10 Best Activity Ideas To Make Your Kid Sharp & Strong

Fun activities for kids

From over a decade, we and our children are living life in the world of technology. Be it using our cell phones to tablets they master it all at a quite tender age, but it is necessary for them to choose things other than these gadgets. Picking up a hobby rather than glued to the gadgets can give them exposure to the outer world and help them to grow robustly. Hobbies give a child an opportunity to express their interest which parents need to catch; it can be done even at a very early age also. We need to encourage them to explore themselves. Children imitate adults, mostly parents and this can be helpful to imbibe some hobby at the start. You can start doing something which out of curiosity they too will imitate – Be it reading a book before sleep, be it watering plants, be it stamp collection, be it traveling with you to favorite spots on weekends.

1. Book reading

It’s an all-time favorite for most of the kids, because stories give them imagination and they create fantasies out of it.

Give them a favorite comic while your kids commute instead of mobile to play games.
