Ways to Celebrate Mother’s Day at Home

Mother’s Day 2020 comes with unique circumstances. Social distancing, self-isolation guidelines, and mandatory closures prevent many annual Mother’s Day celebrations. With a little creativity, celebrating Mother’s Day at home can be fun and memorable.

Even if you are at home, you can make Mother’s Day special. Do you need a little inspiration? Check out the following ideas below:

Get Crafty With Your Kids

Go old school and make something homemade. If you have younger children, get them to help. Make a Mother’s Day gift together. Using your imagination, you can come up with all sorts of handmade arts and crafts.

  • Homemade Greeting Card: Ask younger children, “Why is mom great ____?” Then write the answer down inside the card. The simple approach to Mother’s Day can be a memorable moment for years to come.
  • Collage: Children love to be creative. Making a collage out of everyday materials is a great way to make a small gift for mom. Materials could include magazine photos, buttons, glitter (if you are brave), cloth, cotton balls, etc.
  • Drawing: A child’s picture speaks more than words. Encourage your children to make a drawing for mom.
  • Painting: Paint a picture on a poster board or canvas.
  • Button Art: Use old buttons to create a picture. You can glue the buttons in a creative design to construction paper, poster board, or canvas.
  • Homemade Wreaths: This is a perfect craft project for older children and teens. Make a quick (and safe) visit to your local dollar store. Pick up wreaths, flowers, and other little items to make a homemade wreath for Mother’s Day.
  • Decorate: Make homemade decorations to hang around the house.

Mother’s Day Meal

Eating together is one of the best ways to celebrate Mother’s Day at home.

  • Family Time: Cook a Mother’s Day meal together.
  • BBQ: Depending on where you live, consider a family BBQ on Mother’s Day.
  • Dessert: Do not forget the dessert, which can be the best part of the meal. Make cookies or a cake.
  • Take Out: Order food online for home delivery or pickup. Just remember to follow all safety guidelines.
  • Picnic: Outdoor or on the living room floor, a picnic is always a fun idea.

Movie Night

Turn Mother’s Day into a movie night by allowing her to pick the film. Eat snacks and enjoy the movie together.

Get Outdoors

Practicing social distancing spend time outdoors for Mother’s Day. Go for a walk or hike. Being together is an essential part of any celebration. Do not forget to take your favorite four-legged companion with you.

Give Her the Gift of Time

As cheesy as it may sound, some alone time may be the perfect Mother’s Day gift. Give her the extra time to read a book or indulge in a long bubble bath.

Order Flowers for Delivery
