The Best Activities for Celebrating with Mom
Mother's Day is right around the corner and for most moms, simply spending time with their children is the best gift of all. Instead of showering your mother with store-bought gifts this year, opt to set aside the entire day or weekend for doing fun activities together. Whether you and your mom prefer getting busy in the kitchen or being active outdoors, consider these top ideas for Mother's Day activities.
The spring season when the birds start chirping, the flowers begin blooming and the warm weather decides to stay. On Mother's Day weekend, spend time together enjoying nature outdoors. Go for a walk in your local park, explore a nearby town or neighborhood or lace up your sneakers and head to the nearest hiking trail. Pack a fun, tasty lunch and some great snacks before you head out to take in the sights with your No. 1 mom.
Memories of baking or cooking with your mother, grandmother and aunts probably evokes memories of family parties and holidays, gathered together in the kitchen laughing and talking and likely doing much more taste-testing than actual cooking. There's something different about spending time with a loved one in the kitchen. Often, it's over a dish of salad stuffing or half-way through a cookie mix that some of the deepest secrets and best words of wisdom are shared.
