Lavish your daughter with homemade beauty treatments or teach her how to garden while chatting about life. Spending time together can strengthen the bond you have with your little girl, so do these activities as often as you can, rather than just on Mother's Day and birthdays. Plan an all-day activity at home or set aside a few hours in the afternoon for one-on-one mother-daughter time.
Cards and Other Crafts
Make cards and other crafts with your little girl at home. This activity works well when you can't spend time outdoors when rainy or cold. Use cardstock to design scrapbook layouts and decorate the pages with flower embellishments, stickers and other decor. Your daughter might want to feature some of her artwork or write a poem to put in the scrapbook. You can also make cards and other crafts, depending on what she likes.
Home Spa Treatments
Make spa treatments to enjoy with your daughter at home. Combine raw honey with yoghurt and eggs to create a face mask. Relax in the living room with your masks, close your eyes and put cucumber slices over your eyes. Talk to your daughter while the ingredients sink into your faces. Look online or find a beauty recipe book to create other homemade beauty treats. A coconut oil and egg hair mask is another option that works well.
Movies and Books
Relax and read books together while lounging in a quiet corner of the house. Share stories and read all sorts of books all day long. Bring each other snacks and talk during reading breaks. This activity works well for families who love to read. Read short stories or novels, depending on what you and your daughter like. If you and your daughter don't read often, you might want to watch movies instead and enjoy popcorn, pizza, tea and other baked goodies. Take time to talk in between each movie.
Relax and lay in the backyard with your little girl on a sunny day. Use this time to talk her about school, life or anything. Make homemade lemonade or enjoy ice cream to cool down, if it's too hot. This activity works best when the weather permits, in the late spring or summer months. You can also buy a paddling pool or hop around in the sprinklers to cool off, just sit outside on the porch and enjoy lunch together or get your hands dirty and do some gardening. Plant your daughter's favourite flowers and ask her to help prepare the soil by tilling the ground or adding layers of compost to the dirt.
