Kid Date Ideas Binder
A whole year of Parent-Child Dates!
Children cherish the one-on-one time they have with their parents. I remember being SO excited to go on “Special Days” with my dad, even if it was just something simple like getting ice cream or going for a drive. Here at the Divas, we wanted to come up with an easy way to help you plan fun and original activities to do with your kiddos, to create cherished memories and meaningful conversation! So we created 12 mini dates, specifically for kids and parents to do together, and they all pack neatly into a binder. What kid wouldn’t be excited to receive this as a birthday or Christmas gift?? We want to help you give your children more of what’s important in life – your PRESENCE instead of just PRESENTS! (See what we did there?? hehe)
One of the most important things we can give our kids is quality time with them- which can be tricky with school, soccer practice, dance lessons and homework! I LOVE that the kid date ideas in this binder set are super easy to use & prep, and are seriously ADORABLE! The fabulous Courtney, designer at Paperelli, created these colorful, bright printables that include games, activities, conversation starters and more. Your kids are going to FREAK OUT with excitement at these fun dates!
You can print and prep all the dates at once, so when your special date night arrives, all you have to do is grab the printables and go! And these fun kid date ideas are all conveniently stored in a binder to make them easy to find and keep together.
We want to show you EVERYTHING in this pack, but there’s A LOT, so buckle up!!

The first section of the printable kit includes colorful pages to decorate the front, back and spine of a regular binder. This binder is what will hold all of your date night printables for the year!
There is also a schedule to plan out your dates night, to make sure they happen, and sweet little “contract” for you and your child to sign!
We also created memory pages so that you can add photos and write down memories. After your year of date is finished, this binder has a purpose as a keepsake to look back on!
