Summary: With today’s busy schedules, it can be difficult for fathers to create meaningful memories with their girls. 88 Great Daddy-Daughter Dates provides dads with a wide variety of fun ideas for spending quality time with their daughters. Each date tells dads what supplies to grab, where to go, and how to grow together while having a blast and making great memories. Included for each date are Scriptures and questions to get the conversation flowing. From bird-watching and making paper airplanes to bowling and photo scavenger hunts, there’s something for every dad and every little girl ages 6-12. This updated edition of 88 Great Daddy-Daughter Dates also includes conversation starters and a list of date ideas for teen daughters.

88 Great Daddy-Daughter Dates

I thought this was a smart idea for a book. We like to do daddy/mommy daughter/son dates when we can and it’s nice to have some great ideas to pick from. This book is not just a list of places to go though. It’s so much more.

Each Idea includes a few sections: Grab (i.e. what you need), Go (some are to do at home), Grow (how to make it a learning opportunity without curbing the fun) and a prayer at the end. The grow sections range from simple fun questions (what animal would you want to be) to deep thought (Did seeing the needs of others make you more thankful for what you have?)

There are also a few random lists included throughout the book:

  • 10 Tips for a Successful Daddy-Daughter Date
  • 10 Great Daddy-Daughter Songs
  • Great Games to Play Together
  • 10 Things Your Daughter Needs to Hear From You
  • Great Movies to Watch With Your Daughter
  • 10 Things Your Daughter Needs from You
  • 20 Great Daddy-Daughter Dates For You and Your Teenager
  • 28 Great Daddy-Daughter Conversation Starters

The book is very well written. The authors found a way to make every fun activity a way to grow with God and each other without taking away any of the fun. There are a range of activities so you can find something when you don’t have a lot of time or a lot of money as well as when you can be more extravagant.

I really enjoyed the Grow section even just reading the book. It was almost like reading a good devotional and it really made me think.
