There are lots of mommy and me activities that can be perfect for you and your mom. You just have to figure out which ones are just right for the two of you. Who knows, maybe trying out these ideas can make your relationship stronger. Mommy and me activities, such as the ones to follow, are a great way to spend time together and really get to know your mom.
1. Do Each Other’s Hair
This is one of the best mommy and me activities out there. There was a time when your mom would put your hair in pigtails or plaits for you. Now, it’s your turn. You can get silly and add bows. This fun activity will have the two of you in laughs for years to come if you remember to take pictures (and you don’t even have to post them).
2. Go Shopping Together
Shopping is already an amazing experience. Take your mom along and make it even better. You just have to make sure that you enjoy your mom’s company. Go to the shops with some event in mind (even a fictional one). Then put together outfits to try on for your «event.» The great thing about shopping is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to make time with your mom feel worthwhile.
3. Have a DIY Spa Day
There are so many DIY recipes for face masks and other spa treatments out there. Take an afternoon where neither your mom nor yourself are busy, and get to it. Make a deep conditioning treatment for each other’s hair. Add in a cooling face mask. Feel free to paint each other’s nails. I just know that your mom will love your hip and happening nail designs.
4. Tune into a T.V. Marathon
On any given week, you can almost guarantee that there will be some TV marathon running. If you don’t have the chance to watch it with your mom right away, record it. Save it for a day when the two of you can just enjoy the shows together. If there is no marathon going on anytime soon, you can just take matters into your own hands. Record a few episodes from a show that both you and your mom love. Once you have a few hours’ worth, invite your mom to bask in the marathon with you.
5. Go out for Dessert
You can go to lunch with just about anyone, but your mom isn’t anyone. Take her out for the best meal there is: dessert! You can even get dressed up all fancy as if you were going out on the town. You could make the night a one, two or even three part event. Start with a small cake at one restaurant, move on to pastries at another, and finish with gelato at your last destination. You could even go dessert tasting at only one location and just ask to try a little bit of everything.
6. Go for a Run/Walk
My mom and I absolutely love going for our mother-daughter runs and walks whenever we are together. There is no-one that can push you to do your best the way your mom can. Exercising together can be just the thing to make you see your mom in a new light.
7. Do Whatever Your Mom Loves
The point of mommy and me activities is spending time together. Why not try a hobby that your mother really loves? Giving her the chance to share something that she loves will make her day. It will be an amazing way for her to bond with you.
No matter what you do, just enjoy each other’s time and company. Life‘s is just too short not to. Do you think these mommy and me activities can help make you and your mom closer?
