Girls are always game for some retail therapy, right?

This event is more appropriate for older daughters, so if your teen is into theatre, surprise her with tickets to see The Color Purple – The Musical. Based on the moving novel by Alice Walker, this play will make you ugly-cry, laugh and leave you talking all the way home. For more information on this event click here!
Thank goodness The Bioscope introduced their Ugly Cry Nights for all of us who appreciate a good sob. And what better movie to ugly cry to than the Legends Of The Fall?

High teas are always a great idea for mom and daughter dates, where conversations flow with pinkies up in the air. Growing up, our grandmothers always made us make tea when people visited, and we didn't understand then why people sat around chatting over tea. Now that we're older, we understand that tea is the root of a great conversation. Let your daughters in on the secret with this special treat. Click here for more information. If you are looking for more high tea spots around the city, check out our Where To Indulge In A High Tea In The City piece.
Whether it's licking the batter bowl together or having a flour fight, baking is a great way to bond with your daughter.

It's easy, check it out here!

A simple day out with mom can also mean staying at home in your PJs and doing something cool like scrapbooking, model building or getting stuck into some decoupage. Sound like fun? A simple date would mean going to a hobby store and getting all the things you need for your time together, and we've got a list of where to start: Check it!
All girls need a little time away to get pampered – even the young ones. There are a few salons and spas offering tween and teen packages with mom, however, our overall favourite is Life Day Spa Kids, because they also have kids party packages.
To close this list off, we had to throw in Art Jamming. This is an absolute win for the kids, in our opinion. For some art motivation, you will be so happy you brought them here. For more information on their offering click here!
And we're out ✌️.....
