Plan a play date

Pack for a picnic, play tourist in your own town, or enjoy a special dinner for two. It doesn't matter what you do, as long as you get out and enjoy a day together having fun.

Read together

Select a picture book series or a good chapter from a book to read together. Maybe you take turns reading aloud, or just read at the same time and talk about together. Either way, sharing in a story as mother and son will give you time together with lots of conversation.

Go for a hike

Fresh air and a little expanded energy make a great time. To make the activity even more enjoyable, bring along a book to help you identify the plants and creatures you'll see on the way.

Go to a concert

This may be one of those times when mom has to take one for the team and go see a show that your son wants to see. It may not be your favorite style of music, but the little guy will always remember mom taking him to a concert. 

Play video games

Boys and their video games. This is one cool addition for our mom and son bonding ideas. Because for sons, seeing their moms playing their game is a cool and memorable experience. If you don't have a gaming system at home, you can always visit an arcade near you.

Make a meal together

Get into the kitchen together and make a meal for the rest of the family. Cooking together can be fun and creates a sense of teamwork between both of you. You can even share with your son the long-passed secret and special recipe of your family!

Surprise lunch

Your boys will love it when you show up at their school and surprise them with lunch. But, this may be less appealing to older sons who may feel "embarrassed" by the gesture. If that's the case, go out for a special lunch on the weekend.

Another good addition to our list of mom and son bonding ideas is volunteering to help out in your community. This is a great way of teaching your son the values of helping others and showing compassion while bonding together.

Keep secrets

Create an activity that's just between the two of you. Maybe it's sneaking off for ice cream every Sunday or maybe you have a secret handshake. Sharing something special, even the littlest ones, that no one else knows about will make your child feel extra special himself.
