It will help them to know the earth and they are learning how the plants are grown; they will become curious to know the different kinds of plants and its benefits.
Music is another one; but it is advisable for kids who are interested in music. They can learn any musical instrument and the early ages are good for grasping the musical knots. Similarly, kids, who show interest in drawing can be helped to learn it.
Reading interest can also be improved with the help of elders. Give them big books that contain pictures and small stories printed in big letters.
