Mom/Son “Date” Ideas‏


The relationship between a mother and her son is very special; and important to both mother and son.  However, often life gets so busy that we don’t take the time to celebrate having such wonderful “little men” in our lives.  It’s important to have some one-on-one time with children, as it makes them (and us!) feel respected, special, and all around loved!

So if you need some ideas for mom and son date nights, you’ve come to the right place! The Long Island Mamas has a variety of ideas for all types of dynamic mother-son duos.


  • Get Moving: Get moving with your little man at Station Sports in Huntington Station, where you can have a pinball war, play mini golf, or hit at the batting cages together. At Bayville’s Adventure Park, you can play mini golf, go rock climbing, or tour their mystery funhouse!
  • See a show: If your child is more into the arts, perhaps a trip to the theater is in order. Instead of going to the movies yet again, check out live theater and introduce him to musicals and plays. Landmark on Main Street in Port Washington has a nice selection of upcoming shows for children, including the Paper Bag Players and Curious George. The Tilles Center in Brookville will have holiday shows for children, such as the Junie B. Jones holiday show, the Nutcracker, and in the Spring, Sid the Science Kid and Dinosaur Train.


And NOT to worry moms of little girls, your mother/daughter date ideas will be posted later in the week… so be sure to check back!  PLUS, if you’re the mom of a little boy (OR two, OR three, OR more!) be sure to share your mom/son pictures with us on our Facebook page at Long Island Mamas Network!
