6 Awesome Activities for Kids with ADHD

Kids with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, find it extremely difficult to concentrate and focus on one thing at a time. Not only are they easily distracted, but they also tend to be impulsive.

However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that they can’t engage anymore in sports or any physical and extracurricular activities.

If you have a child with ADHD, you can choose from tons of options to keep them entertained. Just keep in mind that not all activities will work since the solution may depend on the type of ADHD your kid has.

Here are 6 awesome activities for kids with ADHD:

1. Twister

Aside from being an awesome way to bond with your kids, this classic family game can greatly help your child develop their gross motor skills. In case you don’t have this game device yet in your home, you can always make your own using colored paper and other art materials for the grid. Even better, invite your family to build it with you!

2. Theater

How wonderful would it be to see your tot performing confidently on stage? Drama classes can sharpen one’s concentration, especially with the line memorization and endless practices. You’ll definitely be one proud parent cheering on your little actor!

3. Scavenger hunt

Scavenger hunts can be mentally and physically stimulating for your kid. All you have to do is make a list of hidden objects in your home or backyard, and give it to them. If you’re dealing with a preschooler, be sure to use pictures only.

4. Music

If you want your child to be musically talented and train their brain at the same time, sign them up for music class. Better yet, get them to join a band or orchestra to help promote teamwork.

5. YMCA sports

Kids with ADHD can benefit from sports that teach the importance of teamwork. If you want to hone your child’s athletic skills and lift up their spirits at the same time, enrolling them in a YMCA sports club could be the perfect solution. Who knows? You might be raising a future star player!

6. Girl Scouts/Boy Scouts

There are so many reasons to consider getting your child to be a member of a Girls Scouts or Boy Scouts organization. Other than the fact that these organizations provide a wide range of activities requiring attention, focus, and order, they also teach kids and teens good morals through a rewards system.
