I put up a post on Facebook that got a lot of interest andresponses. And somebody suggested I compile the comments into a list. Thequestion was, “How do you entertain a bored 11-year-old?”
I have a “little” with Big Brothers Big Sisters
, andsometimes we (I) run out of ideas. My Facebook friends came through in style,and Roman has come up with some winners, as well.
So, here we go:
Build a model airplane or something. If a boy, build arocket you can shoot off.
Teach him map and compass
Photo scavenger hunt at Lloyd Mall (Roman came up with thisone!)
Learn to shop on a budget, like give him $10 at Dollar Treeand let him figure it out
Peacock Lane at Christmas
Roller or ice skating
Oregon Zoo and the holiday Zoo Lights
has aviation stuff, a waterpark, and IMAX.
