Most everyone likes to celebrate everything their mom does for them on Mother’s Day (which is May 14 this year, in case you’ve forgotten) – so why not include the whole family in the festivities?
Sure, you could send mom off to a spa for some relaxation, but you could also round up the kids for some quality time together – after all, a lot of what moms do is for the love of family, so spending more time together is never a bad thing. Here are seven ideas for family-friendly Mother’s Day activities…
1. Make a Healthy Brunch Together
So maybe mom is still slumbering away on her special day, and that’s okay – you and the kids can take over this task. Health.com has a number of Mother’s Day brunch recipes that mom will surely appreciate, whether she helps prepare it or enjoys it in bed.
Some of the suggestions include cranberry citrus muffins, whole-wheat blueberry pancakes, melon salad, or a spinach and pear salad. There are also a few more “sinful” choices on the list, but you could save those as a dessert for later in the day.
