Hey all, I've a little brother who's 11 years old. The weather is gorgeous outside, transportation's no problem, and I just want to get out there and do stuff. "It's summer!" I say. He prefers to sit in front of the computer/his video games and do nothing. "It's summer!" he says .

Basically I'm out of ideas on WHERE to take him so that we'll both have fun, especially cuz this is his last year here. I just want to get out of the house. He just likes to be entertained. Places like Main Event and Six Flags and the zoo and stuff, are all pretty fun but I'm not made of money . Even if I can't get him to go places with me, I'd really like to get him out of this technological rut. He's not interested in music, before anybody suggests instruments. Where do you all take your younger siblings/cousins/etc?

Sneak him into the local strip club. I guarantee he'll appreciate it.

I usually take my younger cousins to an amusement park, but as you said - not made of money. And since I gather you'd rather he be outside....outdoor mini golf maybe? Swimming? Any other kind of sporting event. Sorry if I'm no help, just tossin' ideas out there.

The park. Teach them to hunt for babes.


Err, I'm a girl, I think this would be quite uncomfortable for the both of us

Thanks monkey, outdoor mini golf gives me some ideas...Putt Putt is definitely not as expensive as those other amusement parks. Sporting events...he's moderately into sports...thanks

Grab him by the hair and take him outside. Force him to do what you want, if he doesn't your destroy his video games
You're not brutal.

Take a ferry somewhere, to an island perhaps and have a picnic.

Then leave him there.

Ok, the leaving part is optional.

Local basketball courts, fishing, or you can build a koi pond like Harmonius did.

Oooooh. So you are willing to sacrifice your brothers happiness for the sake of your own personal comfort?
Shame on you, girl, shame on you

take him out for ice cream and just actually chill with him. going out to eat is a nice way to enjoy ones company and have an actual conversation. Most ice cream shops have some form of dinning that can be enjoyed outdoors. Umm maybe some sort of bounce house? but he might be at that age where he is starting to grow out of that.

Maybe take him to hang out with you and some of your friends. siblings love being around older brothers/sisters friends when they bring them over, like my nehpew is always in the room with me when i bring a friend over or when i was younger i did the same to my brothers. Just dont do something thats too old for him that he wont enjoy. Younger siblings just like being around older siblings friends for some reason.

thats my 2 cents

If you play guitar, take him to a local (sunny) park and spend an afternoon teaching him the basics, start with an Em chord?

Believe me, I've tried with the guitar. I almost gave him my acoustic to start learning on, but he's just not interested. He keeps saying "I WANNA LEARN HOW TO PLAY THE DRUMS!" which...I can't do anything about

Thanks a lot guys, this has given me a lot of ideas. I'm working over the weekend but next week looks like it's gonna be a lot more fun than we've been having. Keep 'em coming.
#25
Well at least you tried.

I know its kinda 'out of season' but ice skating (theres year round places that do it) is pretty killer.

Go to a supermarket. Find some hats. Wear them. Take pictures.
You'll have a grand day.

Go fly a kite! (really, I'm not being a smart-ass... this time.)

Ride bikes.

Go to a museum, but find one about science. Preferably one that's hands-on.

Ride go-carts.

A nature preserve or bird sanctuary?

A picnic in the park for your friends and his.

Find a pond. Feed the ducks.

Horseback riding.

Explore trails through the woods.

Go Fishing.

Build model airplanes or cars.

Teach him how to paint or draw.

Borrow a friends convertible and just go for a drive.

This time of year there might be a County Fair. Those are always fun.

Go to a petting Zoo. or just a regular Zoo.


Sorry, that's all I could think of off the top of my head.

EDIT: I like the idea above mine better. I just feel dumb now.
