One of my favorite memories growing up was going on shopping dates with my mom! They were always so exciting and I looked forward to them so much. I remember requesting a special date night out with my mom or dad INSTEAD of gifts for my birthday. One-on-one time is the best way to strengthen relationships and build a bond between children and parents that cannot be replaced!
The Mini Mom and Dad Dates Kit has everything you need to prepare for, plan, and enjoy dates with your mini me for years to come! Plus, we have 5 fully planned dates to get you started. You’ll love how fun and creative these date nights are!
Create a little anticipation for your child by leaving a cute little card out for them to find before a Mini Mom and Dad Date Night. I love to add a little treat or something special to go with it. If you want to keep the date a surprise, you can add a fun clue to the inside of the card!
Mini Survey Questionnaires
Before you can plan the perfect date night with your kid, you need to know what your child is most interested in experiencing with you! We’ve included 2 different surveys…
The first is a simple survey with symbols for the little ones who aren’t reading yet! Don’t you just love these graphics!?!? We also have a survey that gives kids the chance to share their ideas with you. They’ll be so excited to step up and be a part of the planning after completing this fun survey! Print, cut, and set out the survey that fits your child best before a date night to find out what kind of adventure your mini will enjoy.
