Funny Activities That Everyone Can Join On Mother’s Day
You’re looking forward to activities that all members in your family can get into. It’s so easy to start with some suggestions below.
Eat out With Mom.
Make this just a mother-daughter/son activity or have the whole family, including Grandma because it’s her day too, join in on the fun. You can make this a Mother’s Day brunch or dinner. Lots of flexibility here based on what you think mom would like best. Make a reservation at mom’s favorite local spot. If mom is the adventurous type, do some research and find a new location you think mom would enjoy.
Have a photoshoot.
Capture this Mother’s Day with some beautiful photos and make a whole day out of it. Prepare by hitting up a salon (or do the dollying up at home) and getting mom all jazzed up. Mimosas are always a good addition. Hire a local photographer in advance to help capture the fun and loving mom you all know and love. You can make it all about mom if you think she’d love that or turn it into a family photo-esque day.
There are a ton of volunteer opportunities in most towns. You’ll need to do some pre-planning to see what is available. Perhaps there is a beach or lake clean-up or an opportunity to read at your local library’s story time.
Whatever way you choose to give back — do it together. Volunteering as a family will give you something extra special to bond over and you might even want to make it a yearly tradition.
Go to the farmer’s market.
It’s a lovely place to spend a morning — browsing flowers, munching on farm-fresh snacks and maybe doing a little shopping for the evening’s dinner.
Create a family garden.
Maybe mom doesn’t already have a garden of her own, but you’ve heard her talk about wanting one. This is your chance to help make it happen! Get the whole family involved and spend the day building out a little family garden.
Have a picnic.
Everyone loves a good picnic, right? If mom loves the outdoors, this is a great option to enjoy some treats surrounded by nature. Pack all the finger goodies you can think of, a cute blanket and maybe a small flower vase as the centerpiece.
Breakfast in bed
It’s simple and oh so traditional. Let mom sleep in while you make some of her favorites. Need some ideas? Try one of these recipes.
Go to the spa.
Research a local spa and schedule mom some well deserved me time. If you want to make it a girl’s day — that would work too (and you get a little pampering out of it too). This is a simple activity that requires basic planning — just make a reservation!
Be active with mom
If mom loves to get sweaty, why not spend some time doing just that. Take the family bikes down to the park or to the nearest trail. Take a run with mom around the neighborhood to start the day sweating together or simply go for a long walk at a state park.
Go to the beach.
Although summer hasn’t quite graced us with her presence, spring has definitely sprung! Why not enjoy the beauty that the beach has to offer without the blistering heat? It’s the perfect location to get some family quality time (what mom really wants).
Make sure to have a plan B in case the weather is not cooperating on Mother’s Day.
Dinner and a movie.
Sometimes the old faithful date ideas are winners. When was the last time you went to see a film with mom? Let mom choose the movie and don’t forget the popcorn.
