Mama to-do

Bored with the same routine? Here are 25 hobbies to do with the kids, with your friends or on your own, and all for fun!
Mama to-do



Weekly movie dates

Enjoy the company of your friends by hosting weekly movie nights at each other's homes. Set up a movie theater in the family room when the kids go to bed, or set up camp for them in the other room. Switch off choosing the movies and enjoy time with friends for a movie review afterwards.

Craft nights

Like to craft but don't want to do it by your lonesome? Invite your best friends over for Pinterest nights, or create your own crafts for the season. Add some wine and enjoy the ladies while you do your favorite hobby.


Dinner swaps

Enjoy cooking? Allow yourself and friends to swap dinner meals. Cook for her whole family on a night that she's jammed with soccer practice, ballet recitals and meeting preps, and let her do the same when you just need a break from your routine.


Spa days

Don't spend a fortune at the spa when you can DIY it at home. Get a group of girls together to find out each other's passion and expertise. Let someone do the nails, while another does the toes and someone else does the hair. Feel like queens in the comfort of each other's homes.

Coffee club

Is coffee your thing? Learn to make your own espresso drinks, fraps and cafes with your girlfriends. Choose a few mornings during the week to unwind after the hustle and bustle of morning routines and relax over a cup of joe. Bring gossip magazines and enjoy fun chat about your favorite celebrity dramas.
