5 Fun Things To Do With Your Daughter

Mothers and daughters share a special bond together. Spend some time together and make it memorable. Take your daughter out on a Mommy Daughter date! Here are some ideas that you and your daughter can do together. Start making it a tradition every month to spend time with just the two of you.

1. Go to a Movie

This is a simple idea that often gets overlooked. You can start going to the movies even when your daughter is young. Just ask them what movie they would like to see and go for it! Make sure the movie is age appropriate. Movies are a great way to share an experience. I watched one of my all time favorites movies in the theater with mom and I will never forget it! Follow up a movie with idea number 2.

2. Dinner

Going out to dinner can consist of more than just going to eat. Spend time together getting dressed up. Splurge a little and go to a nice restaurant as a treat with your daughter. This is a good time to find something new. Find a restaurant you both love and make it ‘yours’. Once you establish a restaurant as a place where you two go together, your daughter will hold many great memories every time she thinks of it.

3. Bake Together

All of my favorite memories with my mother are when we bake together. My mother had so much knowledge on baking and was amazing at decorating cakes. Every year we make gingerbread cookies together for the holidays and decorate them for the family. It is a fun tradition that I look forward to every year. Start a baking tradition with your daughter. She will be glad that you passed down your baking knowledge to her and that you made baking something you can do together.

4. Manicures and Pedicures

It may seem like a cliché thing to do, but it can be a lot of fun. Go out and get a mani pedi with your daughter. It is fun to pick and choose what colors and designs you want on your nails together. It also gives you something to talk about. Spoil yourself and your daughter every once in a while and get pampered!

5. Crafts

Stay in and do crafts together. There are a lot of easy crafts that a mother and daughter can do together. Scrapbooking is a great way to share memories and bond, no matter what the age of your daughter. You can do sewing, knitting, and painting. Change it up and make it interesting. There are so many options, you just have to go do it!

  1. I think the things to do is okay with me and my kids but the no. 4 i think….. it’s not for us nor for my wife and our kids perhaps they’ll just come along with their mom and watch.

  2. Nice ideas. Since I do not have a daughter, this also a nice bonding experience with friends.

  3. Now I’m envious. hehehe! I don’t have a daughter YET. How to make one ba? 🙂

  4. These are great ideas. There is also one thing that I want to do with my daughters. And that is to stay in a hotel-resort with spa 🙂

  5. i love everything on your list… bonding time with the family is the best! 🙂

  6. Love this list. I still pray that in the next few years I get blessed to become a Mom. Will revisit this list then 🙂

  7. My great bonding time with my daughter is movie time and foot spa together. That is in addition to having burgers and fries after school. 🙂

  8. My daughter has never set foot in a movie-house yet, except for the one in NIDO Discovery Center where we watched a clip about space. She would love having a mani-pedi session, and probably a makeover.

  9. Mani and pedi!!! Oh yes, that’s one of our fave activities. 🙂
