read books together, play outside together, go parks, color or draw together, take her out to the park. my son loves the park. Good luck.

I don't know where you live but Portland has a tea place that you bring your little girls to and they have an array of big hats, gloves, etc for playing tea party :) If your area doesn't have one of these maybe you can dress up for tea time & visit your local coffee house? or invite another mum & her daugther over for a tea date :)

my 3 yr old loves nothing more than being treated like a princess. You can buy some cheap subtle makeup, nail varnish (clear lipgloss and clear nail varnish etc)sort some of your old clothes and shoes out. Put it all in a box and give her a mini makeover. If you don't like the idea of a makeover just put a bit of baby lotion and cucumbers for her eyes. Once you've done her let her make you up. Its a wonderful bonding process and it'll help you both, but be warned she'll be begging for a makeover everytime shes over

Be there for her and do all the little things like brushing her hair, giving her a bath, dressing her, etc...Spend one on one quality time reading books, playing games, or just snuggling on the sofa while watching her favorite tv show. You could also plan some special "girl" activities that just the two of you can do together. She'll sense how much you care about her.

Try taking her and do something with just the two of you. Maybe even just out to lunch or something she really enjoys doing.
