Masterpiece

The masterpiece my daughter created during her day out with Daddy.

Summer is all about family and spending quality time with the ones you love.
For our family, summer is the time when my husband is most available to take our daughter out for a special day, just the two of them. On Friday, they went to Glazer Children’s Museum and made paper airplanes, ate pretend pizza, and explored the Road Trip U.S.A. exhibit. When I asked my daughter what her favorite part of the day was, she said, “Everything!”

First Things First (FTF), an award winning, not-for-profit organization dedicated to strengthening families, created this short comedy video to demonstrate the importance of Dads spending quality time with their daughters:

Make the Most of the Time You Have.
Your kids are growing up fast, and you will never get this time back, so get out and make the most of the time you have with them. What’s Doing? Tampa Bay blog is dedicated to finding events and activities parents and kids can enjoy together. Tampa Bay offers so many amazing opportunities for family fun, and any one of them would make a memorable day for Dads and their daughters … or sons! Check out the WDTB calendar every day for a list of things to do around the Bay area.

The time you give, however, doesn’t have to be a whole day. Even an hour makes an huge difference to a child. Here is a list of 10 fun ways to spend even more quality time alone with your child, for an afternoon or just an hour.

5 Daddy-Daughter (or Daddy-Son) Day Out Ideas
1. Watch a movie and share some popcorn at the theater. Check out the new releases at your theater, or enjoy one of these local movie events. (Planes: Fire & Rescue opened on July 18. Guardians of the Galaxy opens on August 1, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens on August 8.)

2. Build sand castles on the beach.

3. Paint something together at a paint-your-own-pottery shop.

4. Go on a geocache or take a bike ride

5. Visit a children’s museum.

* Find even more ideas for Daddy-Daughter Days on the GOODSIRS: Better Fathers, Better Husbands, Better Men blog.

5 Stay-at-Home Daddy-Daughter (or Daddy-Son) Day Ideas
In the video, a working Dad made a point of scheduling time during his work day to take his daughter out for afternoon tea. But you can create a memorial day your child will never forget at home, too. Here are a few ideas for creating a special day with your child at home:
1. Make ice cream sundaes and talk about your day together while you eat them.

2. Go on a camping trip … in your back yard.

3. Wash the car together.

4. Make a surprise dinner for Mom together.

5. Curl up on the couch and read your best girl a story or two.
