- Park picnic
- Make-your-own-pizza night
- Beach day
- Fancy brunch
- At-home spa day
Let us know if you end up doing any of these activities. Most importantly, have a great Mother’s Day
- Park Picnic
Soak up some spring sunshine with a park picnic. Have your family pack up a delicious picnic meal (with some of your favorites, of course! It is Mother’s Day.) Find a spot in a scenic park and let the kids play while you relax.
By the way, our foam play mat beats a picnic blanket any day. It’s soft but sturdy, easy to assemble, and cleans up quickly.
- Make-Your-Own Pizza Night
Looking for a cozy Mother’s Day in? Have a make-your-own pizza night at home.
Pizza is the perfect vehicle for customization. Mom can go fancy, with pesto, wild mushrooms, arugula, you name it. Meanwhile, the kids can keep it simple with cheese and pepperoni.
No fights over food on Mother’s Day? It’s already more relaxing.
- Breakfast in Bed
It’s a classic for a reason: This Mother’s Day, let your family serve you breakfast in bed. You can sleep in, enjoy a leisurely breakfast, and absolutely let them clean up the mess afterwards. Plus, it’s an insanely adorable sight when your littles carry in breakfast on a tray, proud of the effort they put in.
- Beach Day
If you’re lucky enough to live near the beach, Mother’s Day is a wonderful day to go. It may not be the weather for taking a dip in the ocean, but you’ll avoid summer crowds and take in awe-inspiring views. Don’t live near the beach? Replace this idea with a trip to the mountains, the lake, or hiking trails. Just get out in nature!
- A Fancy Brunch
Here’s a Mother’s Day mainstay: brunch. With the world beginning to reopen, a nice brunch out is a great option, if your family is up for that. Be sure to make your reservations in advance!
Or, recreate that ambiance with a fancy brunch at home. Invite the in-laws, break out the nice dishes and napkins, and have your family help cook up a delicious meal. It’s a day worth celebrating.
- At-Home Spa Day
If your main prerogative on Mother’s Day is to chill, it’s time for an at-home spa day. Take a long bath with a heavenly scented bath bomb, do a hair mask, and break out the full facial routine. A glass of wine is a great option, too. This can be a me time-focused activity, or it can be fun to involve the kids in a bit of face masking. You do you.
- Visit a Botanical Garden
Verdant, colorful, and gorgeous: Botanical gardens are the perfect space to celebrate moms. For a fun family outing this Mother’s Day, take a trip to your local botanical garden and marvel at all the beautiful plants. This is an especially great activity if you consider yourself a plant mama, too.
We hope these fun, family-friendly ideas give you fresh inspiration for how to spend Mother’s Day. Most importantly, we hope you get plenty of what you need, Mom—whether it’s lots of fun, good food, family time, or rest.
