Fun activity with teen son

My son is 15 and we don't do some of the stuff we used to do when he was little, of course. So I'd like some ideas of some fun stuff I can suggest for just the two of us. He does all the "man stuff" with his dad like hunting and fishing and building things. Not my area of expertise!

  • Cooking! To motivate him tell him that girls like guys that can cook!

  • Movies, Haunted House, Theme Parks... He may not be so interested in doing things with mom right now though...Having him invite a friend may help.

  • Cooking. I make my son make corn bread and other parts of the meals. He is a little older though. I would also take him out to lunch and go to the book store.

  • My boys always like to go the mall......to go shopping for them of course, or a movie they want to see, or go eat at the mall. Bowling is a good idea too
