Attend Sporting Events
Probably the most quintessential father-son activity is attending a sporting event. Cheering on a team together and watching the exciting play-by-play action makes for a prime bonding experience. If going to a professional sports game isn't feasible, you and your son can still experience a little healthy competition. Just a few ideas for sports-related activities include:
- Take your son to a local minor league team practice session for an insider's look at the sporting life.
- Watch the big game at home and go all out with burgers, chips and dip and soda.
- Challenge your son to an afternoon tournament of his favorite sports video game. Up the ante with a fun prize for whoever wins. For instance, if your son wins, he gets a few days off from chores; if you win, your son has to wash your car.
