Ice cream and chit chat at McDonald's. The cones are $1.00 and the sundaes are less than $2.
Window shopping to get ideas for back to school and then getting a drink at the food court in the mall.
A walk through the park.
A bottle of nail polish and doing each others nails- put a sign on the door that says "No boys allowed" and lock it.
teaching about make up, a mom/daughter book club, movie night (you can borrow dvds at your local library)
window shopping at the mall
walks at local parks or hiking at local trails
weekly hour at Starbucks where you catch up over coffee (decaf or hot coco for the kid)
This isn't free, but my daughter and I go to a dinner and a theater/musical show once a month. If you are looking for cheaper, maybe a show in the park and a picnic dinner. My daughter just turned 13 and we have been doing this for about 2 years. It's a great way for us to keep the communication lines open.
Walks are great times. :O)
