Super Fun Mother's Day Activities to Do With the Whole Fam


  • Pick your own fruit. This activity is especially fun if you have a lot of kids who want to get in on the action.

  • Get theater tickets. You can go to a play or a musical — lots of towns even host outdoor theater events.

  • Make a scrapbook. Break out those old photo albums, print some of your phone pics and transform them all into something beautiful.

  • Spruce up the garden. Gardeners know that Mother's Day is the perfect time to start planting seeds. Get the whole family outside and digging in the dirt together.

  • Complete a jigsaw puzzle. Find a puzzle with an image you know your mom will love (or make a custom one using a photo of the two of you).

  • Book a weekend getaway. There's no day like Mother's Day to be impulsive! .

  • Bake dessert together. Mother's Day wouldn't be complete without something sweet. If your mom loves to bake, whip something up together.

  • Serve breakfast in bed. More like brunch in bed — let her sleep in, then enjoy flapjacks and snuggles! Don't forget the coffee and/or mimosas!

  • Enjoy a brunch outing. It so happens that Mother's Day falls on Sunday, which is also the universal day for delicious brunch.

  • Book her a massage. Mom will truly appreciate you going out of your way to set her up with a massage appointment.

  • Treat her to a luxurious blowout. Help Mom feel like the queen that she is by giving her a well-deserved blowout.

  • Take a tour of historic sites. If your mom loves history, gather the family for a tour of nearby historic sites.

  • Take a paint and sip class. If everyone's 21 and up, sign yourselves up for a painting and wine event.

  • Hunt for deals at a flea market. Your mom is the best at finding epic deals, so why not join her for a little shopping?

  • Belt it out at a karaoke night. Channel your inner Beyoncé and rock out to your favorite tunes.

  • Book a family photo shoot. What's a better memory than a family photo? Hire a photographer to take countless pictures you'll enjoy for years to come.

  • Make a DIY sundae bar. Turn your kitchen into an ice cream parlor (and promise her you'll clean up after).

  • Go swimming (or hang poolside). Take advantage of the warm early-summer weather and spend a day relaxing at the pool.

  • Watch a baseball game. Mom loves to root for the home team as much as anyone! Take her out to the ball game this Mother's Day.

  • Take a family bike ride. Get the whole crew up and moving around town. You can deck out Mom's bike with some pretty flowers.

  • Book mani/pedis. Nothing says, "You're the best" like a good foot scrub and a fresh coat of polish. You can often find good deals on luxurious mani/pedis on Groupon.

  • Plan a day hike. Help Mom get back in touch with nature by spending some time in the great outdoors.
