10 Cool Father-Son Activities

Go on a Road Trip

What better way to spend time with your son than by traveling to a new place -- or simply driving around for a while. It doesn't have to be very far or expensive. Choose your favorite car music and snacks, and just get in the car and drive! Each season of the year brings new opportunities for exploration or activities, both indoor and out. Get out an atlas (don't rely solely on your GPS to get you from place to place) for a great opportunity to teach your son about reading maps and figuring out roads. You'll be amazed at how many meaningful conversations can occur when it's just you and your boy in the car!
