A day for Mums to sit back and relax whilst her family dotes on her by making breakfast, taking her out to lunch, doing odd jobs around the house and bringing her flowers and gifts…. If she’s anything like my mum you will probably find her tidying up after all those activities and arranging the lunch herself!
Here are some fun ideas to do with younger kiddies…
Find the Funny: Start a new tradition this year by creating a family comic strip. Take a long sheet of paper, and draw three or four large squares next to one another, like a newspaper comic strip. Then think of an event, or something funny that happened this Mother’s Day and draw it in the panel. You can include dialogue, a date, and a title. Make your Mum the central character. Save your comic strip, and create another one next year and others in years to come. Year by year, you will have built an amazing book.
Mother’s Day Selfie: Start another family tradition of taking funny selfies of your family with your Mum as the central figure. Then you can print them out and make a collage of the day. You can look back on that every day and remember how special your Mum is.
What about some fabulously fun ways for the grown ups to celebrate Mother’s Day?
A family reunion - gather all your beloved family members together at a park or someone’s backyard and whilst you bbq and share out the potato salad, you can share stories of why the mothers in the group are so wonderful.
Share in your Mum’s hobbies - maybe gardening is her passion, she might like old Doris Day movies, or she might just love pottering in the kitchen making those mini cakes she’s famous for - get in there with her. Learn, laugh, love.
Surprise Mum with a “This Is Your Life” Ceremony - all you need to do is speak to a celebrant and together you can pull off the most fantastic surprise for your Mum.

Every year my Mum says “All I would like is some flowers and and choccies. I don’t need anything else.” But she does get more than that, even if she doesn’t realise it.
I’m not talking about tangible, wrapped handkerchiefs or scented candles or soaps, I’m talking about the unconditional love, admiration and gratitude for everything that she does for me. To me, she is more than my Mum - she’s my best friend and it brings a tear to my eye to even say the words ‘I’d be lost without her’, but there are lots of people out there who will be celebrating Mother’s Day without their Mums. Your Mum will always be special and it's important to keep them in your memory.
