The bond between a mother and daughter is unlike any other relationship you will experience in your lifetime. The things you do to help your daughter grow as a person also benefit your growth as a woman. While teaching your child how to be loving, kind, and compassionate, you learn to have more of those virtues yourself. Being a girl mom is so rewarding.
One of the best ways to strengthen a bond between a mother and daughter is by planning special activities for both of you. Here are some of our favorites that we would like to share with you.
Learning about different countries and their customs can be a fun learning experience for you and your little one. To help up the fun factor, try doing a themed Saturday.
A themed Saturday is where we pick a country we find exciting and pretend to live there for the day.
On these days, we dress and accessorize like the people from our chosen country. We also make a recipe that the country is famous for, listen to their music, and watch a movie or documentary based around said country.
REAL LIFE TEA PARTIES
Tea parties aren't just for little kids with plastic toy sets. They are something both you and your little one can enjoy in real life. All you have to do is visit your local bakery or coffee shop.
Alessia and I love fresh-baked pastries, coffee, and high tea. Planning an afternoon out with your daughter to the local bakery or coffee shop can be exciting and absolutely delicious. You can even get a little bit dressed up for the occasion. With Covid-19 restrictions lifting, you will definitely catch us eating tasty chocolate pastries and sipping on coffee or tea at a local shop.
MOTHER-DAUGHTER DATE NIGHT
Date nights aren't always for the parents, and it doesn't just mean going out to dinner. It can also be for mothers and daughters to enjoy local culture and fun activities.
Taking your daughter to an opera, movie night, ballet, or museum can be a fantastic way to bond.
If you live in Vancouver or the surrounding area, you have to check out the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Alessia adores the nights at the symphony when they play a movie on a large theater screen while the orchestra plays the music from the movie. Experiencing things such as these with your daughter is magical.
Teach your little girl how to unwind and practice self-love and care with at-home spa days. Grab the nail polish, face masks, hair masks, candles, and virgin fruit cocktails - it's time to relax.
There is no better way to learn about being a girl from your mother than having a spa day.
Sipping on a virgin fruit cocktail while listening to calming music and taking in the smell of a luxurious candle is a great way to spend an afternoon.
ONLINE LEARNING CLASSES
The worldwide web can also offer an array of fun learning experiences for you and your daughter. There are so many free and paid online classes perfect for bonding time.
It can also be a fantastic way to get in some exercise.
Alessia and I enjoy taking online dance and exercise classes together. Rolling out our yoga mats and learning new stretches keeps not only our bodies healthy but our bond too.
BONDING TIME IS THE BEST TIME
Having one on one bonding time with your little girl is crucial for creating a long-lasting, trusting, and loving relationship. Taking one day out of the week to learn and grow with your child creates a lifetime of memories.
How do you enjoy spending time with your daughter?
