Hobbies play an important role in polishing hidden talent in children. At the same time hobbies are one of the important aspects contributing to the overall development of your child. Following a particular hobby may also help in boosting the confidence level of your child. Parents should therefore find out their child's interest and encourage them to pursue it as a hobby.

The best way to encourage your child to pursue hobby is making him or her join hobby classes. It is also a good option for keeping your child busy and occupied in the spare time.

Hobby Classes for Children

Have a quick look at the list of hobby classes for children.

Computer Skills

Having computer knowledge is no more only an advantage for children. In this technology age, computer knowledge is a must. Computer knowledge may be imparted to children in schools but there are almost very few hobby classes where children get to know about the inner workings of internet.

We at India Parenting have started website making classes for children where they can lean Photoshop, Flash, HTML and internal workings of website. They can have their own website and become youngest webmasters. They will also learn internet safety and explore their creativity by creating e-cards, uploading poems, stories, games and much more.

Drawing, Arts and Craft Classes

If your child goes crazy colouring the walls of your house, enroll him for drawing classes. Drawing, arts and craft classes are good for encouraging your child to explore his or her creativity. You may also enroll him or her for an interesting art and craft classes like Origami.

Dance Classes

Dance classes are very popular amongst children. The number of girls enrolling for dance classes is higher in case of traditional dances like Bharatnatyam, Kathak etc. However, there are lots of children who prefer to learn dance forms like Salsa, Hip-Hop and Jive. The dance form known as Belly-dance is very popular these days. It is one of the Arabic traditional dance forms performed mainly by women.

Music Classes

Music has played an important role in Indian Culture. You may encourage your child to learn Indian classical music forms. You may also enroll him to learn playing musical instruments like Tabla, Harmonium etc. However, children do like western music. They may love playing the musical instruments like Guitar and Piano. You may also enroll your child for singing classes like Indian classical music or Western music.


Sports are one of the best hobbies which can be pursued by children. You may not have to tell your child which sport he should pursue as his hobby. Boys prefer cricket and girls may prefer tennis or badminton. However, there are other good traditional sports like Kabaddi (Hu-tu-tu), Kho-Kho, Malakhamb etc. which should be given preference.

Amongst indoor sports carom, chess and pool are preferred by many children. However, pool may be the choice for older children. Pursuing out-door sports as a hobby can also be good for child's health as out-door sport involves a lot of exercise.


Cooking classes are mostly attended by adults. However, there are some cooking classes where children can learn and have fun preparing snacks which they like. Chocolate making classes are one of the exciting hobby classes for children.

Children have lot of spare time during vacations. By enrolling your child for hobby classes during vacations you may make your child's time productive. If you do not plan to go out with your family during vacations, make sure that you keep your children occupied with hobby classes. However, if your child is already occupied with studies a lot, do not force him or her to join hobby classes on regular basis. Always prefer a vacation time for enrolling your child for hobby classes when he or she is free.

Try to know the likes and dislikes of your child if you are planning to enroll him or her for hobby classes. Do not force your child to engage in the activities which he or she does not like. Give your child options to choose hobby classes of his or her choice. Do not unnecessarily enroll for the hobby classes which may not actually require classes. For example, hobbies like stamp collection or coin collection may not require any classes. Encourage your child to pursue hobby of his or her choice which may help your child in future life while pursuing a career.

I would suggest that you enroll your kid in to a summer camp or some classes that help her in developing a hobby. It would be different from the regular routine of school life and kids also get to make new friends. My kid learnt drawing and crafts in one such summer camp and now she pursues it with avid interest. In fact, only last week my daughter won a prize in drawing competition held at her school Orchids, International.
