It’s Mom’s Night Off! 7 Marvelous Ideas for You and Your Girl Squad

You’ve finally carved out time for a date with your mom crew, and it’s time to let your hair down for a night on the town! Child-free excursions are few and far between, so get ready to make the most of your evening. Skip the standard movie nights, leave the kids’ snacks at home, and take advantage of this rare opportunity with these fun and exciting moms’-night-out ideas.

1. Dance the night away at a concert

There’s nothing quite like letting loose and dancing to live music with a couple of your closest friends. If your favorite musical artist is coming to town, you’ve got the perfect excuse for a moms’ night out. Put on your dancing shoes and savor the chance to ditch the Baby Shark song for… well, anything else!

2. Let off some steam with axe throwing

For the mom squads who like a good adrenaline rush, axe throwing might be the perfect activity. This out-of-the-box pastime used to be exclusive to lumberjack competitions, but now you can find axe-throwing locations in most cities! Don your coziest flannels and stretch out those arms for this terrifically edgy experience.

3. Enjoy some arts & crafts (adult style!) with Painting with a Twist

It’s always fun to get a little artsy. But let’s be real, it’s best when the kids can’t make a massive mess, and you aren’t in charge of cleaning up. At Painting with a Twist, you and your girlfriends can enjoy an adult beverage (or two!), jam out to some music while following along with one of our instructors as you create your own art. Book your seats or a private party at your local studio or stay in for the night with Twist at Home Paint Kits!

Moms Night Out

4. Channel your inner Julia Child with a cooking class

It’s mom’s night off from making dinosaur chicken nuggets and mac & cheese, so why not indulge in something a bit more sophisticated? Book a class at a local culinary school or restaurant, and cook up some memories during your night out with friends. Taking a cooking class together is a great way to stay connected with your busy girl squad. So, heat up the kitchen and bond with your crew with this fantastic activity!

5. Check out the local comedy scene at an improv or stand-up show

Your city likely offers things to do for ladies’ night that you’ve never considered. In the mood for a laugh? Find a local comedy club and grab tickets to a show! Hopefully, you’ll see some SNL-level sketch comedy or a stand-up star on the rise. And if your local comedians are a bit more amateur, you’ll just have a different reason to laugh!

6. Pamper yourselves with a blowout and fancy dinner

For busy moms, taking a shower without little hands pounding on the bathroom door can be a real treat. That’s why this is one of the most fun ladies’ night out ideas! Book blowouts at your local salon, and make reservations at that fancy and extremely kid-unfriendly restaurant you’ve been wanting to check out. Amazing hair and an amazing meal – is there anything better?

7. Throw it back to the good old days with a sleepover party

There doesn’t have to be a curfew on mom’s night off. If you’re searching for free moms’ night out ideas, consider hosting a sleepover! Invite your mom crew over for a wine-down slumber party, complete with your coziest pajamas and favorite rom-coms. Who says sleepovers are for children? There’s something magical about having a heart-to-heart with your closest confidantes before drifting off to sleep.

Mom’s night out is truly sacred, and you deserve to make it something special. What better way to ensure your evening is a guaranteed blast than by booking a private event at your local Painting with a Twist studio? Make lasting memories and masterpieces to symbolize that one child and spouse-free night with your much-deserving mom crew!
