Imagine an inspiring outing that makes you feel youthful and loved…
There’s no fuss about perfect hair, no fear of rejection, no “will we keep in touch?”
Just good vibes and loving thoughts, laughs and ahas. We all need these simple wins. You can create these wins for yourself and your children – the more, the better – in simple creative outings for moms and kids.
Your mom-and-kid dates are a great time and way to share your love letters together, too. Regularly creating mom-magic with your kids will be something that they’ll remember and talk about for their entire lives.
Enhance your life in simple ways
Creative mommy dates with your children – marked on the calendar in bold colors – are great for your health and spirit. You can spend as much or as little as you want, but you’ll always grow richer with each one.
My oldest daughter, now a 26-year-old grad student, still talks about our special evenings camped out on a blanket under the stars. She was thrilled to stay up late! And those out-of-the-box outings made it easy to talk about all sorts of amazing things. They definitely strengthened us.
Here’s a quick list of favorite love-letter-sharing outings for moms and kids:
- On a picnic.
- In a coffee shop.
- On a sunny day.
- On a boulder.
- In a pile of leaves.

And, I bet if you ask your kids they’d love to come up with even more ideas, too!
Great relationships build over time with love and dedication. Your mom-and-kid outings will empower you, and influence your kids and the people your kids meet throughout their lives. Especially when they brag to their friends about your awesome outings together. That’s an amazing reward for enjoying simple adventures together!
