Mother’s Day Celebration Ideas
This year, make Mother’s Day a unique and unforgettable celebration. Spend the entire day with her doing fun things she would like. In case you’re wondering how to spend the day with her, we’ve come up with fun activities you, your mom & even your family can enjoy.
Paint and decorate a mason jar. Write favourite memories of your mom on slips of paper. Encourage the other members of your family to write their memories down as well. Fill the mason jar with the paper slips. On Mother’s Day, sit with your mom while she reads all of the memories you have written down.
Classic Game Night
For a great group activity, invite family over for a night of backgammon, Scrabble, chess and Monopoly. Your mom will love having the house full of laughter and trash-talking again.
Gather other friends, family, co-workers and neighbours who know your mom for on-camera interviews about her best qualities, their favorite memories with her and why they find her to be a good mother. Put together clips of their compliments and stories like one big, digital thank-you card.
Breakfast in bed is always delicious, but now that you (should) know your way around the kitchen, go all out and plan a day’s worth of meals. And make them meaningful—the same breakfast from your first day of school, a soup she always needs when she gets sick, a dessert that reminds her of her childhood. Include a card with each dish explaining why it’s significant.
Picnic in the Park
Pack a picnic lunch of your mom’s favorite things. Pick a quiet local park to have the picnic. Spend the time talking and laughing about the things going on in her life.
