Gone are the days where kids only choices were footy, netball or soccer with training one night a week and games each Saturday or Sunday. These days there are plenty of other valuable activities that are great for kids to take part in after school or on weekends.

Maybe your child isn't team sport orientated and they're more artistic. Get them into activities such as gymnastics, dance, acrobatics, art or music.

Perhaps they're a bit shy or interested in things like insects, animals, science, camping and learning new skills . Ease them into Scouts, Little Nippers or martial arts teaching them leadership skills.

Or you could have a child who has trouble concentrating and focussing. They may need activities to help them calm down and learn strategies to relax. Or perhaps they just need a special task to really learn how to focus on the outcome of their hard work. Look at things like kids yoga, cooking classes, swimming and again music and martial arts.

Martial Arts

Activities like this is a fun way for both boys and girls to achieve fitness and focus. Some parents may think it promotes violence, but that's a myth, according to experts. Martial arts actually help teach self-discipline and socialisation skills. Many children who have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have great success with these programs because self-control and concentration are exactly the skills underdeveloped in ADHD kids.
