First Gen American asks:
Seems the last two go to weekend adventures have been dubbed as “for babies” by my tween. (They were a fall foliage historic train ride and corn maze/pumpkin fest in case you are wondering).
Wondering what new outings I can add that would hold the interest of the older one as I think we are outgrowing the zoo, museum phase of fun weekend activities.
#1 suggests: What do tweens like? Basically nothing! Also I have never outgrown the zoo and museum. [#2 notes, this is true– once when we met at a nearby city when #1 was at a conference, we went to the zoo]. Are there street fairs? I’d be happy to go to the library… Hiking? Fancy tea in the city? Music fest? Opera?
Make the tween suggest the things!
#2 suggests: What do tweens like? Protesting! Making a difference! Being active! Volunteering!
#1 says: That makes sense! Volunteer at the cat shelter!
#2 notes: Miser-mom tends to have lots of good suggestions with her kids.
