These mom and son date night ideas are simple and easy but will definitely create lasting memories.
When it comes to mom and son date night ideas, the biggest thing is to get creative and find something active.
I’m so excited to share these mom and son date night ideas with you guys. Date nights out with my boys are some of the best memories I have with them. We have had so many fun times over the years doing our little dates. Even now, they still ask when our next date is going to happen. They especially love the uninterrupted time it gives them with mom.
As a mom of multiple kids life can get so busy. You’re constantly attending to the needs of somebody in the family whether it be your hubby or one of the kids. Heck, you’re even taking care of the dog, though you told your kids it was their job.
So new ideas can be hard to think about. Don’t fret though, we’re here to show you some fun ones that won’t break the bank.
When it comes to mom and son date night ideas really it’s all about adventure. Boys like to get out and have fun! They don’t at all mind how much money is spent as long as there is an activity involved. Bonding with your boys in this way is especially exciting for them and something they will always remember. Oh and all kids love treats so sneak some delicious gluten-free Walkers chocolate chip cookies in your bag to pull out when you think they need it. It’s national chocolate chip cookie day on August 4th so why not schedule your next date then?
My son did a Mother’s Day card for me at church this year and it when it asked what his favorite memory with me was it said jumping on the trampoline and playing trampoline games with her. Now you should know I don’t do this very often but apparently the few times I have, because it was so active and fun, really had an impact on him.
