  • play ball, and to make digging in the dirt more fun, get all his cars and trucks and build roads to drive them on.

  • My husband builds legos with our son. They also do train tracks, the Geo-Trax...oh brother! It's a huge contraption by the time they are done, but it's fun to watch and our son is usually the one putting everything together, dad just supervises. Depending on your town, they have bounce-houses. You know, the HUGE castles, or slides or whatever....you can just go in, drop a few bucks and they can play and wear off TONS of energy. We have done putt putt, go karts as well. Bike riding is a biggie to.

    Another mom I know does scavenger hunts then goes for a walk and reads off the list for her kids to find each item.

  • I wouldn't personally call it "boy day" because many many girls love digging in the dirt and playing in nature. But activities I do with my son quite often that may fit into the criteria you are looking for: talking long walks in our local garden and nature trail. We point out the things we see and then go home to draw them in our handy dandy notebook. We make a tent by putting it over our kitchen table and bringing camping gear under it. Done at night and we read stories by flashlight. Take magnifying glasses and hunt for bugs. Then we put the bugs in our bug catcher to study and observe. Of course we then draw our observations in our notebook. Running around the track at our local school to burn some energy and build up endurance. I run with him as training for a 10K. Local parks, zoo, fishing, planting vegies and caring for them....the list is endless. Of course girls could do these things too.

  • Personally we are calling it a "boy day" because I am playing with my son and doing the "boy" things he likes to do. We also have a "mommy day" where he helps me with my house work and any thing else I as the mommy need to do.

    Thank you everyone for all of your helpful answers! I look forward to this bonding time with my son. =)
