What do you do during your child's sports practices?

Just curious what kinds of things y'all do during your child's sports practices?  For example, if they're in another room from you during practice (dance, volleyball, etc.) what do you do?  Read a book?  Anything productive?  I would like to make my life easier by getting something done while I wait for my kids while they're at practice.  Any advice is appreciated!  Thanks!

I used to read during. But until I put dd back into something ( now she wants martial arts) I have nothing going on in that

Mine are to young for sports just yet. But when they do I guess it would depend on if I were able to leave or not. If I could, I would probably run errands around town. If not I would probably make lists for to do's for the next day, plan out my grocery  and meal list. Do some cross stitching or reading probably.

I either prep for work, crochet or read during ballet. Her theatre practices are longer so sometimes I leave and get shopping done but I also volunteer, so I'm frequently doing costumes during rehearsal.

Go for a run, wash my car, run small errands. I dump and run. Always back before pick up time.

It depends I may drop DS off and go home to do dinner and have DH pick him up.   Run to the store, walk, read a book.

I was actually thinking about this very subject with baseball season approaching. First of all it's outside, it's cold, or at least windy. My biggest thing this year is being organized. I'm looking for a new tote, maybe with a thermal compartment for drinks. I always seem to be ill prepared - not enough jackets or no snacks (of course I always forget them on the days that the snack bar is closed) or forgetting water bottles - or something for me to drink. I work, and the kids are in aftercare, so sometimes we are going straight from school to practice, so there is no room for error, lol.

As far as what to do while they are at practice, I mostly read, or surf the web on my phone. It does seem like it would be better if I could be more productive with that time, but I'm just not sure what I could be doing instead.

 welll, during gymnastics we can stay..so, I like to watch them. But, when cheer season is in! My oldest does all stars, and hopefully my youngest will be doing it.  They have closed practices, so I usually go home. Her old gym they usually pracitced about 2 hrs. We are at a new gym, and I am not sure how long they practice probably about the same.

I used to study (I've graduated a master program a year ago). Recently, I've been exercising or planning my business.
