Go for a nighttime walk.
Try taking a stargazing walk together. Heading outside in the dark, just before bedtime, can make an ordinary stroll feel special. If you have a toddler or preschooler, you can even let her go in her pajamas, weather permitting. If you don’t want to go for a walk at night, daytime outings make for great bonding too. If you have a younger child, play a game of I Spy. If your child is older, she may want to talk about anything from her favorite TV show to her college plans.
