Are you children involved in any extracurricular activities?  If so, what do they do?  I'm looking for ideas for my kids.  :)

Mine all do a sport, though finances have made us take a few months off. The oldest just started muay thai again and the younger two do gymnastics.

They all do Scouts - two boy Scout and a girl scout.

They do activities with church.

They are all Antlers - a youth program for 12-20yos through the elks lodge. DD is only 10 so we named her the "mascot" because most of the time my only choice is to take her with us.

Soccer, Christian youth group, swimming at the Y, a book club, a drama club in their art-based co-op, a Christian co-op, and a play group.

Martial arts twice a week (total 2 hours), theater from 11-3:30 once a week, and Japanese school from 9-1 once a week.  They've also done mixed sports classes, but honestly it just took too much of our time to fit that extra curricular in so we pulled out.

My ds(12) is currently doing Muay Thai boxing (MMA) classes 3x a week.  He also is in Boy Scouts and goes to a religion class once a week.   He is slightly interested in learning guitar or piano.

For some more ideas, over the years my 3 kids have done:

  • Dance (mainstream and competition)
  • Gymnastics
  • Healthy cooking classes (weekly)
  • Little League baseball
  • Tackle football
  • Basketball clinic
  • Aikido
  • Shotokan Karate
  • Voice lessons (weekly)
  • Brownie Scouts
  • Cub Scouts
  • Spiral Scouts
  • Various drama groups
  • Church choir
  • Show choir
  • 4H
  • Book club
  • Library game days

Nope. Mine just hang out with the neighborhood kids.

He is in soccer (or will be soon, practice starts in Dec).  He does baseball every year.

My 7 year old plays softball. And both girls ride horses (when I can afford to pay for lessons, we do a few weeks here and there). And we have a homeschool group on Fridays at church. I'm looking into 4H or something like it.
