Moms work really hard! Between getting the kids to school, music lessons and cooking dinner, there’s a lot to do in one day. Others are juggling part-time jobs while they still care for their little ones. Needless to say, most moms deserve a night or two away from all of the work.
Here are some fun things you and other moms can do in Fort Worth – or at home – for a mom’s night out!

- Canvas Painting. Come one, come all! You can be a professional artist – or completely inexperienced. Either way, you will have a great time at the classes and leave with your very own work of art. For one-night classes, head to Painting with a Twist or A Piece of Work!
- Coffee. Want to go somewhere cozy to stay warm and chat? Check out these one-of-a-kind coffee shops littered around Fort Worth. Head to Buon Giorno, Avoca Coffee or Brewed for a toasty evening.
- Pottery. Maybe your group is feeling artsy – if so, Fort Worth has some great pottery classes available. While most of these pottery classes require two appointments (one, to make the pottery, and two to glaze it), it’s a great excuse for a second mom’s night out! Check out Firehouse Pottery & Gallery or Garret Pendergrass Pottery for classes.
- Museums. Fort Worth has a wide variety of beautiful, historical and interactive museums. Take a look at the list of museums you won’t want to miss, here!
Sometimes, it’s just easier to stay in rather than go out. Invite your mom friends over for a night of relaxation and fun! Here are a few “Mom’s Night In” ideas:
- Game Night. Have each mom bring their favorite game. Eat some food and play to your heart’s content! This is always a lot of fun.
- Gift Exchange. Have a little Christmas get-together with a White Elephant Gift Exchange. If you are unfamiliar with the rules, check out this webpage.
- Gift Wrapping Party. Tis the season for gift giving! Except for the fact that it can be challenging to find a time to wrap presents during the holiday season. Host a party where your mom friends can bring the gifts, wrapping paper, ribbon and more to get this job done.
- Food. Oh, the joy that food brings! Try one of the ideas below to incorporate food into your mom night:
- Freezer Meal Cooking
- Fondue Night
- Homemade Pizza
- Christmas Cookie Decorating
- Pie Recipe Swap
- Movie Night. Put on your favorite chick-flick and have a PJ party! What girl doesn’t love this kind of night?
- Pinterest Attempts. You probably have a lot of pins – be it recipes, crafts or scrubs – that you’d love to try out. Experiment with your friends and see if you are successful!
