Fall break is coming to a close and kids are getting back into the swing of school.  It is so much harder to keep kids entertained and give them opportunities to run their energy out when the bad winter weather comes.  That’s why it’s time to start thinking about signing up for extracurricular activities.  There are hundreds of different options for families to explore each year.  This time, we decided to put together a list of activities that you might not have considered before including flag football, scuba diving, coding, robotics, skateboarding, pickleball and more.  Extracurriculars can be a great way to introduce kids to a new activity they will love but they can also create opportunities to develop passions the whole family can enjoy.  Check out this list of fun and different activities and try something new this fall!
