‘All work and no play make Jack a dull boy’

We all are aware of this proverb very well. Much emphasis has been laid on the fact that extracurricular activities form an integral part of a kid’s curriculum. With plethora of schools coming up recently, the main focus has always remained on the extracurricular activities for scholastic and co-scholastic development of a child. There are many advantages of such activities, let us take a look on those benefits one by one.

1. Active mode on

Fatigue has become a common concern in the kids these days. Lack of physical activities and dropped energy levels make a kid lose interest not only in studies but also in regular activities. Extracurricular activities boost metabolism, blood circulation, stamina and mental awareness. Indulging children in extracurricular activities will keep them active as well as energetic. It will get them out of the sedentary routine they have these days.

2. Unleashing creativity

Creativity, thinking out of the box and imagination are inborn! But they can be developed too. Creativity cannot be turned on like a faucet; instead it should be nurtured using the right methods. And extracurricular activities help to attain that perfectly. Creative pursuits such as arts, music and writing etc. boost the confidence level of a child and open doors of creativity. Innovation comes right away with participation. Imagination knows no bounds!

3. Teamwork on the way

Well co-ordination from a very young age can be beneficial. When kids are involved in these activities, they learn the importance of working in a team and appreciate each other’s efforts. Exposing the kids to such experiences through extracurricular activities makes them capable and +-strong.

4. All round development

Involving your kids in too many activities will take them nowhere. This is a myth that needs to be busted. In fact people who are good at different things are preferred over people who restrain themselves to one particular genre. When kids are encouraged to indulge in extracurricular activities, they acquire lot many skills which optimizes their all round development.

5. Budding talent

There is a special talent in everyone and this talent remains latent till it is woken up from its hibernation. The kids discover and learn about their hidden talents by taking part in extracurricular activities. We must let kids take part in many extracurricular activities so that they discover and learn about their talents.
