If you’re a mom, Mother’s Day is one of the best days of the year. Your whole family makes a real effort to pamper you, love you, and ensure that you have as much fun as possible. It’s really great to spend quality time with them and feel loved.
There’s nothing wrong with a basic Mother’s Day, where mom gets breakfast in bed, some Mother’s Day flowers, and has a nice lunch cooked for her by the kids (maybe with some supervision from dad) but if you want this year’s celebrations to be truly memorable, it could be worth incorporating some fun Mother’s Day activities into the mix.
Whether you’re a mom looking for fun ways to improve your special day or a child looking for ways to make this Mother’s Day the best one yet, here are a few Mother’s Day family activities you might want to consider:
Build your own bouquet
Getting a Mother’s Day bouquet is pretty standard, and there is nothing wrong with that – moms love flowers – but if you want to have a bit more fun with your flower-based offerings this year, why not have your florist sell you lots of flowers unarranged. Then, you can challenge the family to build their own bouquets with a prize for the winner. Your mom will love getting flowers that have been personally arranged for her and you’ll all have fun trying to be the best with your Mother’s Day arrangements. Your local florist, Lamps Flower Shop has beautiful flowers and arrangements to choose from. Have your flowers delivered straight to your front door with our flower delivery options in Rock Island, IL.
Have a scavenger hunt
This may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Mother’s Day activities, but it really can be a lot of fun. Pick mom up and take her on a fun-packed scavenger hunt that sees you all visiting places that hold fun and meaningful memories for you all. You could visit local parks, cafes, beauty spots or even the place where she got married. The more meaningful you make your clues and the locations you visit, the more your mom will love it. Just give it a try!
Take her shopping
If you’re not great at Mother’s Day gifts, you could make shopping for gifts the actual gift. Your mom will love the fact that instead of just dripping off a gift for her to open, you are going to spend the whole day with her hitting the shops and picking out the perfect present to mark the occasion. Finish the trip with a meal in a nice restaurant or diner she loves and buy her a pretty bouquet of flowers and she’ll be blown away.
Do some crafting
Arts and crafts might not be the traditional Mother’s Day activity, but there’s no denying it can be a lot of fun. Whether you pick up some flowers from the local florist and dry them to make a long-lasting bouquet, you have your mom teach you how to knit or you spend time collecting materials from the garden to create a collage, you’ll be spending quality time together creating something new as a family.
If your mom is more of the active type than the stay in bed and be pampered type, having a family sports day could be fun. Get out in the yard, or visit a local park, and take a bat and ball for a family throw around, or if that’s not her kind of thing, have her teach you a few yoga poses or show you her favorite hiking spot – she’ll love that and you’ll all be making memories.
Take a flower arranging class
Since Mother’s Day and flowers go hand in hand it could be great fun to hit up a local flower arranging class as a family. It’s a great skill to learn, and you’ll get to take home a beautiful bouquet at the end of the day. Don’t have any classes locally? Buy your own and watch an online tutorial together.
Bring her breakfast in bed
Before the big day, hit the farmer’s market and buy the freshest produce you can find, taking care to buy a few of her favorites, then put your culinary skills to the test before brewing a pot of fresh coffee. Place it all on a pretty tray with a vase and flower, add a meaningful Mother’s Day card and then present it to her with a smile. It’ll feel so indulgent.
Try some fun Mother’s Day activities and make this year’s even the best one yet!
