Mother’s Day is a day set up to celebrate mothers and all of their contributions to their families and the community. The following is a look at some of the fun things you can do to celebrate this day set up for moms around the world.
Eat. Let’s face it, most fun activities include food in some way or another. One of the best things you can do for Mother’s Day that will be fun, is a nice brunch or meal of some kind. You can have a meal out, or you can have a meal at home, but make it special. For example, consider having a three-course fondue dinner, with a cheese course, a broth or oil course, and a dessert course of caramel or chocolate. This is a fun, long lasting meal that will give you plenty of time for conversation, etc. Or, take your mother to her favorite restaurant, and make it extra special for her.
Spend time with family. A fun thing to do for Mother’s Day is spend time with family. You can have a BBQ in your backyard, or go to a movie, or play a round of cards, etc. The point is, no matter what you do, do it as a family, and spend the time honoring your mother, and helping her to see how wonderful her family is. Spend time with family and make sure that you do not fight, and make it un-fun for mom.
Favorite memories. A fun thing to do on Mother’s Day is sit around and discuss your personal favorite memories of your mother. For example, you could get a notebook out, and start with a topic, then everyone has to share the first memory with their mom that has something to do with the topic. For example, the topic might be ice-cream. Then go around your family and each one takes a turn sharing a memory that involves mom and icecream. The whole family will get into the walk down memory lane, and mom will love hearing the memories and being reminded of the good times from the past.
Things your mothers like to do. Of course, a fun thing to do on Mother’s Day is anything and everything your mom likes to do. Mother’s Day is a personal holiday that requires some personalized activities. Not all mothers enjoy the same things, so think about what makes your mother unique, and plan activities around that, even if it means pulling weeds, and getting fresh soil on your pants as you plant brightly colored flowers in window boxes.
If the activity is something your mother enjoys, or provides a memory, or shared happy experience with your mother, it will be a perfect thing to do on Mother’s Day. So, start thinking about what your mom likes to do.
