Most of us have heard of a bucket list, but what about a Mother and Son Bucket List, if you have boys?
I just love having fun with my children – the more adventurous, the better! In fact, I really think that part of the reason children are in our lives is to remind us to have FUN again, don’t you think?
Children have this inbuilt ability to be carefree and just enjoy life. No one has to teach them; As adults though we sometimes unlearn this habit of having fun.
I’ve ticked off those we’ve done already (not that we can’t or won’t do them again, and again – and again. We probably will…)
So, here are 50 Fun Things to do with Your Son :
2. Swim in an Aqua Park together
We’ve done this lots of times – at Center Parcs in England (when they were about 3 and 5 years old), in Egypt, in Guildford & in the Bracknell area. They’ve also done it themselves at birthday parties.
My boys LOVE water-slides and wave pools.
5. Play Chess together
We went to St Ermin’s Hotel in London, with a friend and her two boys. Us ladies had the usual high tea with little sandwiches, macaroons and dainty cupcakes – and the boys had a ‘Superhero’ High Tea themed especially with boys in mind. I was surprised at how they loved it!
10. Go Sailing together
11. Waterski together
We’ve read a lot of wild and wacky books together – and even though they don’t need me to read to them anymore, I still sometimes read from a funny book to them…
14. Take a Mission Trip together
I’d like to do this perhaps in a few years’ time – take them to help with emergency aid if possible or to visit an orphanage or child that we sponsor through an organisation called Compassion.
20. Go Glamping together
There’s a number of places where you can go glamping in England – this was the Medieval Glamping at Leeds Castle. My husband & I slept in a 4-poster bed inside the tent! Nothing like camping when you arrive to a plush tent already up & waiting just for you. 🙂
21. Take a trip on a Houseboat
22. Go Snorkelling together
23. Have a Movie Marathon
28. Go ‘Go-karting’ together
31. Take a Cruise together
32. Teach him how to ‘waltz’
35. Go Canoeing together
36. Practice skimming stones
40. Go Jet-skiing together
We watched one together at Disneyland Paris; They’ve also been to local stunt shows with their Dad.
42. Watch a live sports game together – rugby, football, Wimbledon tennis
45.Ride together in a Hot Air Balloon
46. Go for a Helicopter ride together
49. Take surfing lessons together
50. Take him to the circus
What about YOU? Do you have any more ideas that you would add to this list?
