Depending on the age, a trip to the movies, or a craft project. My almost four year old loves to go and get her nails painted with mom, and we make a day of it. We usually go to lunch, and then do our nails, and it is fairly inexpensive as well. This could go for any age over 3. If they are younger, you could bring them to the library and make it a special day, by reading them the books they pick out. How old is your child or children?

I sing with my little girl and pick her up and dance with her. We dress up sometimes and just giggle and be silly and have fun. I sometimes cook with her and we have a picnic on the kitchen floor. Sx

The best way to build a bond is by spending time togeather. Read togeather, play togeather, talk to eachother (even if they really aren't saying real words, it's good practice for them), lots of hugs and kisses...It's hard to build a bond unless you're spending time doing things togeather. You don't need to "spoil" a child by giving them treats or presents, etc., to get them to bond with you, you just need to put in some time. Make them feel like every single time you're togeather that there's no where else you'd rather be, or anyone else you'd rather be spending time with. Every time you walk into a room that they're in, make sure you smile at them, and acknowledge them (say hi, even). If you make them feel special, they return that gesture without ever meaning to. It's hard not to bond with a person who makes you feel like their life is better because you're in it. :) I hope that helps. :)

Do you mean what's the best way TO bond? Or what's the best thing ABOUT the bond?
