Fun Activities for Little Girls

For those of you with little girls and boys, you know how different the two can be. Everything from the way they talk to the way they dress to the activities they enjoy varies. Boys are generally more active than little girls just because they enjoy exploring new territories, playing sports and thrill seeking. Little girls on the other hand are a (usually) a little more reserved and like to play it safe. A quality that is great, but it can make it harder to get them involved in different activities. So, today’s blog post is one that will hopefully help you find an activity that your little girl might enjoy trying out.

Ballet/Dance – Just because little girls don’t find climbing trees and paintballing fun and exciting doesn’t mean they don’t like to get out and move…they just prefer it to be more “ladylike.” This is one of the reasons ballet and dance classes have become so popular for little girls. And, the classes range from toddlers on up! The only thing you should be aware of with these activities is that there may be numerous outfits required, which can add up. You’ll also want some accessories to match the outfits such as ribbons, bows and other hair pieces.

Horseback Riding – If you live close to a stable, then your little girl may enjoy signing up for horseback riding lessons. Most children love horses and learning how to ride. Plus, your little one will learn a lot and can also move up to competitive riding if desired. As with most activities, there are some costs involved with this too. So, be sure you do your homework before signing your little one up.

Cheer/Tumbling – Finally, a lot of girls love to take tumbling and cheer classes. They love challenging themselves and competing with their peers. Additionally, they are still able to get “dressed up” and wear sparkles when participating in these activities…something all girls love! These activities teach girls how to interact with others in a friendly, yet competitive manner, discipline and what it means to be on a team, which are all important life lessons that will benefit your child throughout her life.
