Objective: The aim of this study was to measure children’s participation in leisure and recreational activities and their preferences for activities to evaluate agreement between the children’s participation and preferences for activities. Method: Three children with cerebral palsy completed the Children’s Assessment for Participation and Enjoyment (CAPE) and Preferences for Activities of Children (PAC) during their stay at Beitostølen Healthsports Centre. Results: The children participated in recreational and social activities most frequently. They participated in physical and skill-based activities least frequently yet the preference scores for the two latters were high, suggesting that they very much wanted to do those activities. Their level scores of enjoyment for self-developing activities were low and so were the preferences for this activity type. These findings are in concordance with other studies. Conclusion: The children participated most frequently in recreational and social activities. They had overall high scores of enjoyment and wanted to participate more in physical and skill-based activities than as of today. They did not find self-developing activities particularly enjoyable nor preferable. Participation in activities is essential to children’s development and quality of life. Studies find that children with disabilities are vulnerable to reduced participation.In rehabilitation it is important to focus on children’s enjoyment and preferences for activity in order to increase motivation and intensity in activities that they find enjoyable and giving. This study supports other’s findings but more information is required in this field to illuminate children’s preferences for activities and thus enhance participation.
