This weekend we filmed our son playing in a Hammock Swing. He was playing "Peek-A-Boo" game crawling inside the hammock and popping up at different places.

Not all sports are appropriate for ADD/ADHD children, and not all children will like the same sport, so you might have to experiment a little bit. There are some activities that have been proven to be successful and generally enjoyed by children.
