MOMMY & ME DATE IDEAS: CUTE THINGS TO DO WITH YOUR LITTLE ONE
Mommy and Me dates are a great way to spend quality time with your kids.
While time together at home is important, it's also important to get out of the house and away from your regular routine. Mommy and me dates allow you to teach your child new things they may not learn at home. So pack a bag and head out on a new and exciting adventure!
1) PLAY DRESS UP
Go through your closets and “dress up”. Look through the attic to see if there is any type of old clothing that you can turn into a fun costume. Spend the day adding to it or applying makeup. Be creative and think outside the box. By only using the materials and old clothing you have available, you will be amazed at your little one's creativity.
2) VISIT A ZOO
If there is a zoo near your home. Not only does this make for excellent pictures, but it's a great opportunity for your little one to learn about animals. If they allow it, older children may also enjoy feeding the animals or playing with them.
3) SCAVENGER HUNT
Don't forget your phone for this one! Before you leave home, make a list of a few things that you would both like to find. Every time you see something on your scavenger list, snap a picture. When you get home, you'll have a great memory of how you spent your day!
3) A PICNIC IN THE PARK
Having a picnic is always a great option for a mommy and me date. Have your little one help you make the sandwiches and gather all of the items you will need for the picnic. Work together to pack the picnic basket and then head out to your favorite park or playground. Take a walk and look for the perfect place. If you're lucky, you may be able to find a small stream or pond to sit by!
5) SHARE ICE CREAM
Another great idea for a mommy and me date is an ice cream social. Spend a few minutes trying samples to pick out the perfect flavor and then sit outside and enjoy the breeze. Cold ice cream on a hot day is a great way to relax and spend some quality time with your favorite kiddo.
Your children are only little for a short time. Embrace every moment while you can! Mommy and me dates are a great way to make memories that you can share with them as they grow. Take as many pictures as possible and always make sure you are in them with your child. Pictures are great but they are priceless when they include both of you.
