  • School shopping! Clothes and such. Make it a lunch date and a mall adventure.
    This would be great fun for you and her, rather than with her father.

  • you can go to the mall and window shop. i could have gone to the mall every day when i was that age! a mani or pedi might be fun to do together. you can start looking for coupons now. what about an in home spa day...make your own sugar or mud mask, do your nails and hair? go to the beach? bike rides? ask her what she would like to do too.
    have fun!

  • Tell her what your interests are and see if she shares any of them. My daughter was having a hard time relating to my ex's girlfriend until my daughter discovered that she sews and is a good scrapbooker. Things I don't do. After then found a common ground things were much easier for them. See if she's into anything that she can teach you, girls love to teach. :) Even if it's something you know how to do, go along with it and let her show you. :)

  • indoor rock climbing is a really cool fun adventure and is a very bonding experience because you really have to depend on each other.
