Any suggestions for what my 12 year old son could occupy himself with after school? He is home close to six but does not like being "bored".
He does not have homework and we do not have TV -video games or the likes.

TIA!!

Learn a skill
Simple electronics (they have kits)
Magic show
Instrument
Wood burning
Maybe a group of like minded boys can get together and form a Jewish boys scouts

My son was part of Jewish Boys Scouts about 20 yrs ago
They had 2 frum scout masters 1 father 1 rebbi from their yeshiva
They had special Jewish patches they earned
Tzitzit tieing, tefillin, mezuzah/Sofrim, etc.
They also earned the regular patches
They would go camping over Shabbat , about 5x a year
