Treasure Hunt

Have the kids put notes in spots all through out the house that each give a clue, which leads to the next note. The notes can lead to one big gift at the end or you can leave a surprise in each spot, even if it’s just a few sticky notes with sweet messages written on them. Mom will be swarmed with love and the kids will have a blast expressing their creative sides.

Picnic

Grab a blanket, pack a lunch, and head to the park or just your backyard! Mom will enjoy any meal she doesn’t have to cook, especially if it’s a meal together in the beautiful spring weather. Even if it’s raining, a living room floor picnic is always fun.

Alone Time

Sure, Mother’s Day is often about spending time with the mother you love. But what mother doesn’t enjoy a little time away? A solo trip to the movies or the mall is an understated but coveted way for her to relax and feel appreciated. (Bonus: Make sure she comes home to a clean house!)

No matter how you choose to celebrate, mom will feel thankful for any effort you put into showing her that all her hard work and love doesn’t go unnoticed. She deserves thanks year round, so the least we can do is make this one special day all about her!
