Take her to the zoo, to a local museum, to a park, to a ball game (whatever the sport), to a local high school play, help her come up with something fun to help support the troops, volunteer at an animal rescue, volunteer at a soup kitchen, take a walk around the neighborhood & clean up liter...

Quoting Mari6443:How about mommy/daughter dates? You can go shopping together, eat at a great restaurant you both love, go to the movies,etc. Just be creative and you'll have lots of fun!:-)
My dh isn't in the military but occasionally is gone overnight for work or camping out with ds for Boy Scouts. DD and I usually just have girl time. We do our hair, makeup and nails. We watch movies and eat popcorn. We just hang out. We don't have money to spare to go out so we just do fun things at home just the 2 of us.
