5 Unique Hobbies for Children

September 2, 2022

Hobbies are important to explore with children as they help them to develop their identity and sense of self. If you’re struggling for ideas, we have a list of 5 unique hobbies schools recommend for children.

Cycling

It’s become more of a challenge for parents to take their children outdoors. There are many great benefits that they’re missing out on such as the fresh crisp air and the opportunity to build their strength. It can also help them with their mental health as cycling is a form of exercise and exercise releases endorphins. The environment will also thank them too as bikes take cars off the road and make space on buses. 

Ballet

Both boys and girls can participate in ballet. It can help them to be more graceful, help them with their coordination, following instructions and overcoming their nerves as they will need to perform in front of others.

Origami was invented in ancient Japan and is a method of paper folding. Children can create their own swans, flower decorations and fans all with paper and precision. It can help them to strengthen their hand-eye coordination, patience, problem solving and creativity. 

Fishing

There’s quite a lot of fun to be had fishing. You have the opportunity to catch your own dinner and it is a handy survival skill to have. It also gives you the opportunity to bond with your child and help them with their patience as it can take a while before reeling anything in.

Bird Watching

With a set of binoculars and a bird watching guide, your child can have a lot of fun looking out for rare species as the world around them passes by. They can build upon a range of skills – most notably their patience, memory, and attention to detail.
