Skip the Nail Salon: 5 Mother Daughter Ideas for a Girls Day Out


mother daughter ideas

Your daughter is out of school for break and now has several days full of nothing to do. You could let her spend it doing the same old activities or you could schedule a fun-filled mommy-daughter day. Days like that are important for your young daughter’s development and it creates memories that she will hold on to forever.

Now comes the important task of coming up with mother-daughter ideas. While it’s easy to take her out to get her nails or hair done, sometimes it’s best to take a step back from beauty for a bit. Here are 5 activities that she will love doing with you that don’t involve getting dolled up.

1. Try Something Different

There is always something thrilling about trying something new. You can get a Groupon for about anything from a thrilling escape room to a cake decorating class.

If Groupon doesn’t have any activities that you think your daughter will like, you can also check the local paper. They’ll have plenty of listings and coupons as well.

2. Do Some Mommy Daughter Yoga

Yoga can help your daughter develop concentration, help her work on her flexibility and balance, and ease her stress. Call around to your local yoga studios. Many of them have special mommy-daughter classes that you can take advantage of.

If your daughter doesn’t seem to have the patience for yoga you can try and take her to Zumba to reap the same benefits.

3. Have a Spa Day

We know we said that we were going to stay away from beauty centered activities but going to a spa doesn’t have to be all about manicures and pedicures. It’s a relaxing way to spend the afternoon.

You can either take her to a spa in your area or create the spa experience right in the comfort of your own home.

4. Movie Marathon

You don’t have to pay movie theater prices to enjoy a few flicks with your daughter. Pop some popcorn, pick up some dollar store candy, and settle in for a movie marathon.

You can binge watch some of her favorite movies or introduce her to some that you enjoy. Can anyone say Harry Potter weekend?

5. Ride Your Bikes or Take a Hike

Sometimes it’s a good idea to take a break from the house and go out to get some fresh air. If you’ve got any great trails in your hometown, it’s a perfect excuse to take your bikes out on a nice day.

Don’t forget to take plenty of pictures and bring a healthy picnic lunch for you to enjoy.

Mother-Daughter Ideas for the Perfect Day Out

If your daughter has a little bit of time out of school, consider taking at least one day out of her break to spend with her. Spending time with parents is an important part of any child’s development and she will love being with you.
