88 Great Daddy-Daughter Dates by Rob & Joanna Teigen

Build Strong Relationships & Lasting Memories
with Daddy-Daughter Dates

A Game Plan for Creating Affordable, Fun & Creative Dates With Your Daughter

There’s no denying the importance of a relationship between a dad and his daughter.  Girls gain a sense of self-worth from their fathers.  From little girl to young woman – a dad can make all the difference in how a girl sees herself, the world around her and the man she’ll eventually choose to be her husband.  While understanding the importance of establishing and growing that relationship, many dads are overwhelmed when it comes to actually finding the time and creating ways to “date” their daughters and help them become the strong, confident young women they want them to be.

88 Great Daddy-Daughter Dates: Fun, Easy, & Creative Ways to Build Memories Together  offers dads a wide variety of fun ideas for spending quality time with their special girl.  Authors Rob and Joanna Teigen offer help and encouragement to dads who want to make that all important difference in their daughter’s life.

Each date tells dad what to grab (any needed supplies), where to go, and how to grow together while having a blast and making great memories. Also included are Scripture and questions for each date 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 girl ages 6-12.

As a father is it your responsibility to spend time with your daughters, therefore, leaving you the responsibility of making it happen and making it meaningful.  With the Teigens' book in hand, you can do just that.  I believe this is the coolest book I've seen.  Rob and Joanna have made it so easy for you with a little preparation you have 88 fun activities right at your fingertips.  All you have to do is follow the 3 "G's" and you are set.
First "G" stands for Grab.  this part of the activity tells you exactly the materials needed to pull off a fun time.
Second "G" stands for Go.  this gives you the details of the activitiy what exact is going to happen and how to make it happen.  The directions or game plan.
Third "G" stands for Grow.  this section will help you to grow and connect.  make the time even more special.  icing on the cake.  gives you ideas of things to talk about during your time together.  ties it all together.  Questions to talk about, thoughts to share and even scriptures to read.

Here are a few pictures of one of the activities.  If you click on the picture it should make them readable....

Having father/daughter, one-on-one time, lets her know that she is important.  It make take some planning and juggling of schedules to make 1-on-1 time happen, but isn't your princess worth it.  Before you know it she's all grown up as my daughters are.  I wish this book would have been written 20+ years ago.  The book opens with 10 tips for a successful daddy-daughter date and closes with 20 Great Daddy-Daughter dates for a teenager.  In between you'll find a variety of activities to do indoors as well as outdoors, quite as well as active times, there are even seasonal and holiday related activities, some that cost little or no money and the last 8 in the book are Big Extreme Dates that take planning and a little more money.  Last Fling Type activities before you truly let her go.  I just can't give this book enough praise.  If you are wanting to spend quality time with your daughter then why not have fun while doing so and this is just the book you need to get the job done.
