National Daughters Day with Piccolina
Today we're celebrating a fun holiday, National Daughters Day! Although we celebrate our girls every day, this fun holiday is a way for us to give them some extra lovin' and plan a fun day for them. But before we share a few ideas that you may want to enjoy with your daughters too, we wanted to highlight a special collaboration that is very important to us.
We are honored to have collaborated with a mom-owned company, Piccolina Kids to celebrate our young daughters. The brand stands for everything we are constantly teaching our girls - empowerment, STREAM, leadership, exploration, and more. Piccolina is a brand that parents can feel good about buying for their daughters because it is dedicated to empowering today's young girls to become tomorrow's trailblazers and problem solvers. All of the products they make lets young girls know from the time they are toddlers, that there is no limit on what is interesting, aspirational, or achievable in life!
We chose Maya Angelou and Jane Goodhall for our girls because they each represented qualities we want to help teach our girls. Click on each photo of the girls to purchase their trailblazer tees + use our promo code BAMBINA20 for a special discount.
Maya Angelou's work shows the importance of using one's voice for good. The award-winning author, poet, and civil rights activist is the perfect role model for our girls to learn how to become an incredible storyteller.
Jane Goodall's love for animals will teach our girls the important relationship humans have with amazing creatures and nature itself. They will also learn that it is our duty to help protect the rainforest and the habitats they animals call home.
But that's not all! Piccolina also has matching adult tees and we were fortunate enough to be able to choose our own trailblazers to wear alongside our girls. See below for who we chose and why + click on the photos to purchase your own and use our code BAMBINA20.
As moms of young girls, we are their greatest role models and it is a role that we take very seriously, so being able to choose Marie Curie and Malala Yousafzai was very special for us. Marie Curie paved the way for women with many firsts and Malala Yousafzai advocacy has grown into an international movement.
Here are a few fun activities you can do with your little ones to learn more about these trailblazers + a few of our favorite reads from Famillius.

Fun ways to celebrate your daughters today:
1. Create a Mommy and Me journal - share how your day has gone together in a special journal only the two of you can enjoy. If your little one is too young to write consider drawing photos together or you can write for her. Another idea is to get a book like the one below and add personalized notes to her. You never know when you need your mom's advice.
2. Have a movie night - Build a makeshift fort or snuggle up on the couch with your favorite movie. Make it a sing-along for extra fun.
3. Cook together - Make their favorite meal for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Let your girls join in on the fun. If they are little consider making a quick and easy snack or their favorite dessert.
4. Spa for the day - Add some sparkle to the daughter’s day by arranging a pampering session for them at home. Nail painting, play salon, an edible kid-friendly mask, and fun bubble bath.
5. Giveback with your little one - Teach them the importance of giving back to those less fortunate. This week we will be participating with Piccolina and Swoondle to send clothes to kids in need. To participate visit https://www.swoondlesociety.com/piccolina
A few more ideas:
Do a funny photoshoot - Dress up in your favorite "princess" inspired outfit and snap a few photos with your daughters. Another fun idea is to have the girls dress up in Mommy's clothes, jewelry, and shoes.
Go on a Mom and Daughter date - Take the girls to a local park or set up a picnic outdoors in your backyard with a few of your favorite activities (watercolor painting, sidewalk chalk, tag, etc)
Build or DIY something - put your girl power into action and paint or build a fun new item for the house, garden, or their room. This can be anything - a frame (include a special photo of both of you together), paint a chair, shelf, etc.
Boss for the day - Let your child take control of the entire day and allow her to decide on everything. This will make them feel powerful and independent.
Teach her a new skill - Maybe you have a special family recipe you want to teach your daughter. Or maybe it’s time for her to learn to ride without training wheels. Think of a new skill you can teach your daughter and plan time to work on it together.
Flower craft - Making a flower with each petal representing something different a woman is known for: strong, smart, etc. This descriptive flower activity is wonderful because it helps to build vocabulary as well as cognition by thinking about different personality traits. You can have your child make a flower that represents themselves or they can pick a special female in their lives.
