Yeah, it is more important for the kids to indulge in other than school activities which they enjoy doing rather than we sending them. Their interest in the activity makes them more freshen up and hence they can concentrate more on their studies.

Hi Shikha, I think it's very important to have unstructured free time to indulge on hobbies esp for kids who are in middle and higher grades. It helps them relax and get refreshed to do their heavy school workload. I usually don't enroll my son in too many activities after school. The general rule we have is one activity each from performance art, sport and service. So always he will have only 3 or sometimes 4 activities a week. Since piano requires practice, he includes it in his regular homework schedule. So accommodating it isn't a problem. We have very restricted screentime too. Travel time from school is also very short (8-10 min). So he gets enough unstructured time to do all his favorite hobbies.

we all try our best to give some relief to our children through one way or the other.. ..my girls enjoy drawing and coloring , if feasible they would do it everyday .. but due to time constraint they are not able to .. please suggest ways so that they could indulge in their favorite pastime everyday..
