10 Cool Father-Daughter Activities

All the World's a Stage

Little girls can sometimes be a bit dramatic, so why not indulge that side of her by taking her to the theater?

While plays and musicals are a fun way to spend a couple of hours, exposing your child to live theater may also help her excel academically and give her a well-rounded education. Younger girls may enjoy puppet shows or specially targeted children's productions. Tweens might prefer musicals like "Annie" that feature girls their age. If your high schooler is studying Shakespeare, take her to a professional production of the play she's reading in class. Seeing the text come to life may help her understand the material and do better in school.

Get a subscription to a theater company or series of shows. It will give you specific dates you can put on your calendar, allowing both of you to look forward to future daddy-daughter time.
