Sometimes it’s easy to get into a rut with your kids where the only time you seem to spend together is spent running errands, driving them to school and activities, and working on their homework. Quality time with your child is important for their development and your relationship with your kids, and it’s good for both of you to choose activities you will both enjoy.

Planning a kid date a couple of times a month is a great way to bond and create memories. Coming up with creative ideas for you next outing with your child can be difficult and stressful, and thinking of something that they will enjoy can be a pain as well. To help lighten that load, here are some ideas that your child will enjoy and appreciate, that will be fun for you too:


ArtSpark in Littleton is the perfect place for you and your child to get hands-on with your creativity, and let your little one run free with their little minds at work. This gives you the opportunity to see what your child thinks and what they like to do. With many different mediums, you and your child can draw, paint, and so much more. You can be as messy as you want, a plus for the little one. Just remember to wear play clothes that can get paint on them.


Ace Eat Serve is the perfect spot to bring older kids. They have a wide variety of fun things you will enjoy together, including table tennis and delicious Asian-inspired food meant to be shared.


My Make Studio is similar to ArtSpark, in that they both require creativity. However, My Make Studio has help available if you and your child are unable to think of anything to create. They also allow How-To's, teaching you how to make different arts and crafts in a guided setting.


UnCorked Kitchen offers relaxed cooking classes for groups of adults, but they also have parent/child cooking classes as a fun option for you and your little chef. This is a great way to not only bond with your child, but to also teach them the fundamentals of cooking.

As you can see, the Denver area is full of fun options for spending quality time with your kids. We hope these ideas inspire you on your next parent-kid date.  If you need some additional ideas or just don't have the time to pull it all together, we are happy to do family dates as well.  Our Perfect Night Out is a great option for some one on one time or our Group Fun if the whole family wants to get involved.
