Abstract: In this paper, we describe what children do in their extra-school time in Europe, and explore the determinants of the use of their time in order to assess whether differences exist across families with different characteristics, as well as between European countries. Using data for the Multinational Time Use data, we analyse children’s time engaged in sports and games, as well as social, cultural, and religious events. We also observe the time spent with parents, both playing and studying. We find parental background and family characteristics to be important: parental education increases the time spent together in both educational and playing activities, while parental work – probably as a proxy of income – increases children’s time in sports, social and cultural events.
