Summer break is the happiest and most excellent time for children to explore their interests, learn new skills, and engage in activities beyond their regular school curriculum. It’s a great time for learning new skills and giving time to your hobbies.


Here are some Extracurricular Activities that Children can join during Summer Break:


Joining a sports team or attending a sports camp can be a great way for children to stay active, learn new skills, and make friends. Popular sports activities for summer include skating, basketball, swimming, tennis, and baseball, football. What a brilliant way to keep your younger one's mind and body busy and healthy.



MOMS TIP - Enquire your child which sports she wants to learn and play. DON'T push her into a game you adore the most.

Yoga and Gymnastic


In the fragile initial years, kids are really flexible, teaching them yoga and gymnastic from the begging will make them free from the rigid body. Yoga and gymnastic sessions for your kid should be a must in summer vacation as it not only has one single benefit but has many benefits to yield.

One should learn one musical instrument to play in his life. I personally regret not learning any in my childhood days. Learning to sing, becoming a part of a band, or learning to play an instrument helps in the overall development of your child. These activities help children develop their musical abilities and provide an opportunity to perform in front of an audience.
