Hobbies provide entertainment. Some are educational or help people learn skills. Sometimes the skills learned from a hobby can be useful in a job setting, in fixing up a home; they can develop skills that make someone more independent (e.g., cooking) or saving money by doing something yourself instead of hiring someone. Some hobbies can even become a fundraiser or job. So, hobbies can be useful in addition to providing enjoyment.
