As a mother, you have to maintain and improve your relationship with your daughter while she is growing up. Making your daughter feel your presence as her parent, guardian, and best friend is the most vital part of raising a child. Even when there’s no special occasion, it is important to establish a strong bond with your daughter. Spending time with your daughter not only builds trust between you, but also makes her closer to you. Here are fun ideas to do with your daughter that will guarantee the two of you a good time.
One of the classic things that mothers can do to bond with their daughters is to bake a cake together. Encourage your daughter to learn a recipe and be there as her guide. Instead of buying your favourite cupcakes outside, why not bake in the comfort of your own room? For a more fun experience, decorate your cupcakes with sweet tops and challenge each other whose cupcake looks better. In the end, what matters most is the memorable experience you two will be having while baking, which is sweeter than the cupcakes.
Book a Trip
Go on a vacation with your daughter to the nearest destination and just relax. Being a mother can be really tiring especially when your daughter is still young, so perhaps it’s time to get yourself that much-needed break you need but of course, with your daughter beside you. Have a quick dip at the beach and don’t forget to take pictures with your daughter in your matching swimsuits!
Go to the Spa
Relax those senses and rejuvenate your body and spend your “we-time” with your daughter at the nearest spa. Pamper yourselves and let this serve as a time for you to gossip and talk about what’s up. Sip on an organic juice while having your nails painted with the colour of your choice. Both of you will exit the spa feeling fresh and beautiful.
Find a Hobby Together
If your daughter is into music, get into her world by asking her to teach you. Or for a better idea, if she plays musical instruments, volunteer to be her singer and help her while she’s practising. If you express appreciation for her passion, your daughter will surely become closer to you. This can also work the other way around—encourage your daughter to try your hobbies too. If you’re into cross-stitching or knitting, teach her how to do it. Not only will you learn something from each other, you will also have a great time.
You are never really busy when it comes to spending time with your daughter. Make her feel that you can also be her best friend for life. Above all, make her feel your love by being there for her always.
