Mother's Day Activities and Crafts for the Whole Family

I’m holding a special workshop at Bird on a Wire on May 5th in honour of Mother’s Day. Come join me with your little one, and learn how to make easy homemade gifts for mom! Click here to sign-up today.

For me, the perfect Mother’s Day is full of cuddles and family time. It starts with a homemade breakfast of delicious crepes and freshly squeezed orange juice, and continues with a pyjama day replete with snuggles, laughter, and games. Later in the afternoon, we might get dressed and go for a walk in the woods or by the sea. Mother’s day is about spending time together.

Here are some activities I would personally love to partake in on this very special day!  

Mother's Day Activities for the Whole Family

Homemade Breakfast in Bed

In my opinion, Mother's Day should always start with an awesome breakfast in bed and cuddles. The perfect gift for mother’s day is in fact freshly squeezed orange juice and homemade crepes. Never made crepes before? No problem! Check out my authentic French crepe recipe here.

Lip-Sync Battle

Channel Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show and put on a Lip-Sync battle in your own living room. Get each family member to choose his/her favourite song, and let the battle begin! 

Create a Canvas From Flowers

Find a little space in your yard, and bring a Mother’s Day message to life—literally! Purchase a variety of fast growing flower seeds that are well adapted to where you live. Next step, get your little one to trace a message for mom in the soil. Something short like “Mom Rocks” or “I Love Mom” works well. Plant the flower seeds in the soil where your kid drew their message, and water that patch of garden regularly. In no time, you will have the perfect gift for Mother’s Day growing right in your backyard.

Movie Night

Another enjoyable Mother’s Day activity is going to the theatre together or organizing a home movie night featuring family videos. My little man absolutely loves to watch home videos, especially of his own Mom and Dad when we were babies!

Picnic in a Park

Weather permitting a picnic is a lovely idea for a Mother’s Day activity. Pack a picnic basket, ride your bikes, or walk with your family to the nearest park, beach, or mountain!

Make Coupons

Coupons are the perfect easy homemade gifts for mom! Have your little one and partner make special Mother's Day coupons featuring your favourite activities or much-needed ones!

Here are some ideas for Mother’s Day coupons:

  • Coupon for a late sleep in
  • Coupon for a cuddle
