Recent studies show that children spend up to 56 hours per week on the internet. That’s longer than a full-time job spent on Facebook, Snapchat, and the web in general. We’re sure you’ll agree, that’s an enormous amount of misspent time. While the internet is useful for learning, and building communication skills, there are more ways for your child to develop.

Today, we’re looking at some of the best hobbies that help practice real life skills. We’re talking about creativity, intelligence, and real communication. Not only that, but they’re super fun, and your kids will love to get involved! Here are five of the best ideas to improve your child's development.

1. Learn a musical instrument

Learning an instrument, such as the piano or the guitar, can significantly benefit your child’s future. The experts say it improves the capacity for memory, and refines your time management skills. It also improves coordination, and helps teach children the importance of perseverance. They say that piano is often the easiest place to start (though, it’s arguably the hardest to master). But, let them choose, don’t force them into an instrument they don’t love.

2. Ballet

Ballet has long been regarded the best way to introduce children to dance. It’s graceful, elegant, and fantastic exercise. Your children will stay healthy and increase their flexibility. They’ll also improve their balance, and begin to learn to work as a team. Ballet is all about the group performance, and communicating with your group. It’s also a great way for your little one to make friends. Introduce them to classes for ballet and dance, and take them along for their first session.

3. Team sports

As they grow older, it’s so important for kids to learn to think about others. By playing team sports, they must take into account the rest of their team. Everything from basketball to soccer to baseball will help your kids form part of a bigger team. They’ll make new friends, and slowly grow to love the sport.

4. Drawing and sketching

Drawing and artwork is a wonderful way to let them express themselves. They can dive deep into their imaginations, and draw what comes to their minds. Many teachers encourage drawing and sketching because it helps build their creativity. It can even help them put things into perception, and improve their logical skills. For some children, it’s the best way to express themselves and communicate.

5. Baking

Baking is fantastic, because it’s something you and your children can do together. It’s a chance to bond and connect with your little ones. While they’re young, they’re desperate to be involved with ‘grown-up’ things. Baking is just one of those. They’ll love helping you make cakes and cookies. Put them in charge of decorating or mixing. They’ll be so proud of the outcome! If nothing else, they’ll enjoy licking the spoon clean. We just hope you’re ready for all the mess!

Helping your children find a hobby the love is an essential part of growing up. Don’t push them into something they don’t want to do. But, do introduce them to the best options out there.
