10 Fun Ways to Celebrate Mother’s Day
Every second Sunday in May, we celebrate Moms all over the world. Get the kids involved in making Mother's Day special and show Mom some love with these fun and thoughtful ideas.
Make Breakfast in Bed
Bring Mom breakfast in bed or if she’s already up, make breakfast and eat it together at the table.
Take Mom on a Picnic
Don’t let Mom do any of the work so get Dad to help out with the menu. Plan out the picnic at a favourite local park and let her enjoy her favourite meal.
A Personalized Mug
Put your best family photo on a mug for her to enjoy as she sips her favourite coffee or tea. Add in some specialty coffee beans or tea bags for a nice extra touch.
A Gift in Her Name
Make a donation to her favourite charity, in her name. This isn't directly to her, but she'll love it just the same.
Make a Scrapbook
Get some of your best family photos and put them in a scrapbook. If you aren't much into scrapbooking, you can order a photo book online. These make great keepsakes.
Does Mom love a piece of artwork the kids created at school this year? Have it framed. This is a great gift from the kids!
There are a lots of birthdays and other events that Mom likes to keep track of. Help her by making a family calendar. You can create your own on the computer or order a personalized calendar online.
Make a ‘Mom’ Memory Box. Look for things around the house that remind you of special memories. Find your best family moments and photos, and create a mini keepsake. You can also draw pictures of your special events.
Make a Date
Does Mom love to go to the museum, the zoo, or the aquarium? There is nothing better that mom can receive on her day than spending it with the ones she loves. Look for city attractions that are hosting special events or brunch. You can also visit our Calendar of Events to see a list of Mother's Day events taking place in and around the city (just sort by Mother's Day!
As a family, take over all of Mom’s chores the week before Mother’s Day so the weekend is free for a special activity! The last thing mom wants to do during Mother's Day weekend is an endless load of laundry.
Don’t forget to make a hand-made card to thank your Mom for all the things she does for you and your family. This is the best gift of all.
Happy Mother’s Day!
