    Spa days are classic activities for women, but that’s because they’re awesome. A facial doesn’t take long but it’s a long enough pampering session to feel refreshed.

    Massages feel amazing, but the fact the people can go and get them together make them a great ladies’ day activity. Let go of stress and tension before the school year comes around.

    Baseball games and summer go together like peanut butter and jelly. Enjoy a game with fellow adults who won’t ask for ice cream in the middle of an inning.

    Paint and sips are fun events easily found for discounted rates on Groupon. A smaller or larger group can go and attendees can relax, sip wine or a beverage of their choice, and paint a pretty picture.

    Yes, going to the movies is an activity that can happen with or without kids, but this is the chance to see something other than a PG movie. Hit up the convenience store as a group for all of the snacks.

  • @vedrana2701 via Twenty20

    Wine and cheese is always a good idea. Invite friends over and throw on a movie at home, or a show like The Bachelorette, and snack away.

    River cruises offer beautiful views in a fun atmosphere. Book one online for the upcoming weekend.

  • @ksenyat via Twenty20

    Going out to dinner is a classic group activity but it’s a yummy choice. Plus, there’s no need to worry about any meltdowns or kids menus.

  • @daphneemarie via Twenty20

    More into breakfast? Live like those pre-baby days and wake up late but still have time for eggs Benedict. 

  • @luca.mara via Twenty20

    Wine tastings are the ideal situation. A big group goes and discovers new flavors of a beverage of choice, from wine to rum or whiskey, and may come away a little tipsy in the process. Bottoms up!

  • @HeidyShmeidy via Twenty20

    Karaoke is the perfect place to put worries aside and have a fun, kid-free night. Sing along with the ladies to songs that no kid born in the last 10 years will be able to appreciate.

  • @eyamarajas via Twenty20

    For those who don’t drink alcohol, coffee dates are satisfying alternatives. They’re more laid-back and relaxed, setting a precedent for the headspace mom should be in.

  • @dantes1401 via Twenty20

    Plenty of artists tour and put on great shows. Find a group and get tickets to one. Or head to a live band night at a local bar.

  • @lelia_milaya via Twenty20

    If the ladies are lucky enough to all live near a beach, what is everyone waiting for? Get out there with some snacks, drinks, and a good book.

  • @JulieK via Twenty20

    Want to really enjoy kid-free time? Book a week or weekend getaway with the gals and explore a new city.

  • @hellomikee via Twenty20

    Cooking classes are perfect single or group activities and everyone gets a delicious meal out of it. Choose a savory class or a sweet baking class.

  • @boubouh.mhamed via Twenty20

    Throw it back to high school days and hit up the mall. Sure, as a mom, this place is frequented often, but without kids? Yes, that’s what we thought. Have fun.

  • @yura.selivanov via Twenty20

    Crafting is a great stress reliever and something unusual to do with friends. Grab the most creative ones and plan an at-home craft session or head to a pottery shop.

  • @Elisall via Twenty20

    Take advantage of a quiet house to both read a book and host a book club there while the children are away. The perk of this activity is it can continue throughout the year as the group can meet in any public space. 

  • @stanpoh via Twenty20

    Dancing is the best. Some moms don’t have time for it anymore, so take advantage of the kids being away, and hit the dance floor.
