Disney's managed to corner the market on little girls with all of those princess movies over the years. Even if your daughter is tween-aged and has outgrown her Cinderella dreams, she definitely wants to feel like a princess! Plan a girls-only spa day complete with facials, makeup application and the requisite mani-pedi combo. You can easily pull off this feat at home if a fancy-schmancy spa isn't in your budget. Or, visit the makeup counter at a department store so your daughter can experience a professional beauty treatment; surprise her by purchasing some age-appropriate cosmetics, like pressed powder and lip gloss.
At the end of your spa day, you'll both be feeling relaxed, refreshed and updated on each other's lives. Do yourselves a favor and cap it off by ordering out for dinner, or making Dad don an apron instead. You don't want to ruin your sparkling new manicure, do you?
