Is the following structure sound?(activities, by doing of which they can learn something)
Parents need to make their children busy with activities, by doing of which they can learn something

If it is not correct, I like to know how you interpret it!
Thanks

    Isn't it truer the other way round?:)
    Try and move the clauses around and see what you'll get.

    I would say

    Parents need to keep their children busy with activities through which they can learn X.

    Ribran's suggestion is much better - it's less clunky and sounds much more normal. However, here is how you would correctly use the structure you attempted: "Parents need to make their children busy with activities, which by doing they can learn something." This really sounds ungainly, however, so I would not advise using it.
