A daughter wants to feel that above all the other little girls in the world, Daddy would choose her again and again and again. And one way she can feel that way is when Daddy spends quality time with her daughter. Here are some daddy daughter activities:

Daughters Want to Feel Pretty

We know beauty is so much more than physical appearance. We want daughters to be strong and have fortitude. But girls want to know they’re pretty, too. It’s okay to communicate to them that they are pretty with these daddy daughter activities:

  • Take her to her hair appointments
  • Take her to buy a new school outfit or even just a new hair bow
  • Polish her nails
  • Purchase an inexpensive piece of jewelry and tell her it sparkles just like she does.

Also, give your daughter feedback. Notice the kind deed she does for someone else. Compliment her on studying her homework. Thank her for sharing her favorite toy.

Daughters Want to be Pursued

For this idea, it’s more about words than it is about the what and where. Sure, you come home, tired from a long day’s work, and although you feel like you have no more words, dig a little deeper. Ask your daughter questions, and listen…really listen…as she talks. Here are a few questions:

  • What was the one special thing about your day?
  • What did your friend and you do today?
  • What are the top three things you are good at doing? How do you know?
  • If you could be one animal, what would it be and why?
  • What makes you feel safe?…scared?
  • What is your favorite school activity? Why?
  • What do you have a hard time doing? Why is it hard, do you think?

I can say my husband was very good at pursuing our daughter, and they started their special traditions when she was pretty young. Today, she’s in college, and the special memories they talk about aren’t the big things like the trip to Disney or going to the beach over spring break. They recall their Monday morning trips for pancakes. They talk about him reading Junie B. Jones books to her. Or how the two of them were Saturday morning early risers, and the two of them would slip away and do something special.

It’s never too late to start these daddy daughter activities, and when you do, watch your daughter’s face light up.

Little girls want to feel chosen. They want to feel pretty. And they want to be pursued. Here are a few daddy daughter activities to make her feel special! Daddy daughter date nights are a great way to connect!
