This will be an option outside of the box, but it's something you can learn together which will make for a more unique and close father-son experience. Perhaps you should consider an activity like learning to spin maori poi balls together. If you don't know what that it is, look it up! You can find tons of examples as well as intstructional videos on youtube. Poi balls can be made by filling two balloons with a bit of dry beans or rice and then putting each one in a pair of long stretchy tube socks. Fancier manufactured or handmade poi can be purchased, but the sock method is really ideal for learning. It's great, great fun, it will improve your balance and coordination as well as improve cardiovascular health and stimulate creativity. Plus, when you gain enough skills dad can play with fire poi! Talk about an adrenaline rush!
Well, I guess this would depend on the age of the child. With a very young child I would say reading to him, playing games, taking him to the park. If he is an older child then all of the answers given are great. I think the most important thing that everyone is trying to convey is just be there for him. Listen to him, spend time with him, find something you can enjoy together, I'm certain you will make great memories with whatever you do together. The father-son relationship is a great one. Be a good role model.
Play ball, get pizza, arcade, beach, go carts, water park. Events dont necessarily Makes Memories sir, you loving your boy and showing him will Make him love u. Hugging, joking, talking about girls ( older ) and bein there will help the relationship and bond between a man and a son. Being there giving him advice when needed teachin him how to walk like a young man and be a man in the future. That will give u a strong bond
Volunteer for the day at Habitat For Humanity, it's an organization that helps build homes for People in need. After the home is built there's a ribbon cutting ceremony to welcome the family to their new home. That's how we Texans help people out. It would be an awesome experience for you and your son, depending on his age .

Play outside, sports, bike riding, fishing, read a book together, do a puzzle or board game. If you have a dog chase your dog around the house. If you live near the ocean go swimming, surfing, jetskiiing. Some fun things you can do are, waterpark, bowling, park, go to pizza or ice cream, take your dog on a long walk, amusment park, fro yo, watch tv together (ESPN), take a nice long nap, joking around, playing pranks on your mom or sister! Many things you can do!
Sports, fishing, going to the movies - most important is just spending quality time together - having open communication. Realizing that great father-son relationships don't necessarily mean "like father, like son" or vice versa. but respecting each other for your differences..
Take him to the bating cages. But make sure your doing things he enjoys too. Maybe first you show him something you like to do then the next time he chooses and you do something he like and just switch off in till you find many thing that you both enjoy doing together
