If the custodial parent accepts extra curricular activities for the child like birthday parties etc can the non custodial parent ask for those hours lost in make up time?

A: If one parent has lost hours they were entitled to, most courts are very flexible in allowing the parent to make up those hours when they can. This is something you should try to work out with the other party rather than taking it to court. If you are talking about one instance of make-up time that will only last a few hours, and there are no other reasonable times for the parent to make up the time, then that should be considered even if it conflicts with other events.
