Mother’s Day Ideas for Family

Be Outdoors Together!

What better way to celebrate motherhood than by spending time outside? If it’s going to be a nice day, consider heading to a botanical garden! Simply a local park with beautiful flowers will do. Taking a stroll on a beautiful day is the perfect family activity.

Celebrate with Food!

Heading out to eat for brunch is a nice spin on your average lunch or dinner restaurant outings. This way, you have the majority of the day left to do other things too! Many restaurants offer brunch deals and special menus, so look around your favorite eating areas or even try something new!

Go to an Outdoor Market!

The best kind of shopping is family-friendly shopping – and that screams farmer’s markets and street fairs! Depending on where you live, you can find a ton this time of year that usually have different themes. This is family-friendly and will be fun for everyone!

Have a Movie Marathon!

It isn’t every day that you get to stay inside and watch movies – especially with the busy lives that we all lead on an everyday basis. It’s likely that moms around the world will enjoy a day of do-nothing and go-nowhere! Find a comfy spot on the couch and pick a family-friendly lineup that everyone will love.

Make a Family Time Capsule!

Spend part of the day creating memories – and storing them for later! You can place items, notes, and arts and crafts by the kids to look back at in a few years. This gives you some family bonding time and a nice memory for everyone to look back on Mother’s Day in 5 or 10 years.

There are so many possibilities for a day like Mother’s Day! It also depends greatly on where you live – the weather may be beautiful or still may be chilly, and you may be able to go to the beach for the day or head to the city.

No matter where you’re headed, the most important theme of the day is mom and what you can do to make sure that she has a great day and realizes just how appreciated she is!

Whether you stay in or have a full day planned, all of the mothers or motherly figures in your life will thank you and feel so special for having planned a jam-packed day of fun!

There’s more to Mother’s Day than gifts – and while these are nice, moms appreciate the little things like a beautiful day with their families. But hey, a nice spa gift certificate never hurt!
