Mother and Daughter activities over the summer holidays

Mother and Daughter activities over the summer holidays

With the summer holidays upon us it’s time to fill your diary with fun things to do with the kids, to keep them occupied and entertained until September (eek!). Most mothers take this time to bond with their little ones and particularly mothers of little ladies, to indulge in ultra-girlie activities. We’ve put together a list of things to see and do in Northamptonshire between July and September.

Afternoon tea

A special treat for grown up girls is an indulgent afternoon tea with mum. Beckworth Emporium in Mears Ashby is an exciting destination for all ages and offers a delicious afternoon tea, as well as seasonal a la carte lunch menu. Green fingered ladies can browse the Plant Emporium or enjoy a countryside walk nearby to make a whole day of it.

Paint your own pottery

Unleash your creativity and flair at a pottery café with your littlest lady. The Kiln in Bedford is a painting on pottery studio and tearoom. Choose your piece of pottery, be it a bowl or figurine, and decorate in your own style. You can also paint hand and footprints on plaques which is lovely activity to do with very little ones – they make for a treasured keepsake or gift idea for Christmas.

Insect experience

If your little lady is more into creepy crawlies than cute fluffy animals then she will love Bugtopia in Kettering. Enjoy hands-on interactions with stick insects, lizards, giant snails and tarantulas and have a chance to ask a bug expert all about mini-beasts.


Shopping trip

Enjoy some retail therapy with your girls at the Centre in Milton Keynes. With retailers like the Disney Store, Accessorize and Waterstones, there’s plenty of fun and educational things they can purchase with their pocket money. Replace out-grown school uniform, get their feet measured and update pencil cases ready for the new school term.

Pamper day at Grafton Spa & Wellness

An ideal place to bond with your daughter is at the spa. Book your double manicure and pedicure together and let your little princess choose her preferred colour of nail polish – we have many shades of pink and glitter available. This is also a perfect time to book into the salon to trim her hair so she’s looking smart and ready for the new academic year. You can make a day of it by booking a spa day together, so you can both enjoy the hydrotherapy pool and have a chance to chill out and enjoy the country views over a light lunch.
