Getting your kids to disconnect and go outside these days is so important. It can be very easy to let them stay indoors all day, stuck to their devices, but it’s important to keep a balance in their lives. Plan some fun park dates with your daughter for some quality mother-daughter time. These are the moments you will cherish forever. You’ll always look back on your daughter’s younger ages and wish you had taken the time to create a stronger bond. Make your moments with these fun mommy and me park date ideas!
We all love to eat and what better way to spend your morning or sunny afternoon than with a picnic in the park? Plan a spring picnic in the park with your little princess. Have her help you create the menu and put together your picnic meal. Then pack up and head to the park! Bring a little speaker to listen to your favorite tunes or indulge in the sounds of nature. If you live close to a beach, this might be a better outing on the sand! Just watch out for seagulls.
You can’t beat a nice bike ride in the park. You get the wind in your hair, the sun on your face, your blood pumping and that invigorating feeling of moving your body. It’s kind of hard to be in a bad mood if you’re riding bikes! Whether you’re cruising on a paved bike path or riding mountain bikes on the terrain, throw on some sneakers, biker shorts and a comfortable top and start moving those pedals with your daughter!
Do Some Tik Toks Together
Yes, we said TIK TOKS! So many adults think of Tik Tok as just a platform for the kids and don’t even think to jump in. Get in touch with your inner child and show your daughter that you can let loose and be silly with her. Jump into her world for an afternoon and learn some tik tok dances with her. You can let her lead and teach you or you can work on some choreo and come up with some moves together! Rock some coordinating matching mommy and me leggings and tops to make your Tik Tok video even more cohesive.
When was the last time you skated? As adults, we hardly make time for some of our favorite childhood pastimes, but there’s a reason you had so much fun on four wheels - whether it was quads or inline skates. Get your endorphins pumping and get that exercise in! You’ll both end up having so much fun on skates you’ll probably end up staying out until the sun goes down. Pro Tip - if you’re both a little wobbly on wheels, we recommend wearing some cute leggings instead of shorts, in case a little fall and tumble happens, you’ll have less of a chance of scraping up those knees.
Play a Sport
Get moving with a fun sport! Bring a baseball mitt and baseball to play some catch; If there’s a basketball court, bring a basketball and spend some time practicing your shots or even play some one on one games together! If your daughter doesn’t know how to play, you can teach her or if it’s the reverse situation, you can take some time to learn. If you’re more into volleyball, or soccer, whatever it is, playing sports in the park is not just for father-son duos - moms and daughters should spend time getting active and athletic in the park, too! This will help encourage an athletic and competitive lifestyle for your daughter, two things that will be an advantage for her all through life.
