Mother’s Day is a great day for us moms! We love the special day that is dedicating to celebrating everything about motherhood. To me, it almost feels like a second birthday.
One of the things I have loved most over the years when Mother’s Day comes around is when my whole family is together. It is the greatest gift of all when my family will spend some quality time with me. I cherish the special moments we create and the memories I keep forever from every Mother’s Day.
Spending time with mom can mean a lot of different things. You can spend some quality time with mom by doing things she is interested in. Maybe she has a favorite hobby or project she would love doing together with the family. Maybe she wants to spend time with the whole family and just laugh together.
If you aren’t sure where to start, I’ve put together some fun Mother’s Day activities you can do at home. Check out these 10 fun ideas to celebrate Mother’s Day at home!
1. Serve Breakfast in Bed
Let mom sleep in on her big day of celebration. You can make a delicious breakfast for her and serve it to her in bed when she wakes up. Make pancakes, waffles, crepes, or her favorite thing to eat in the morning. She will feel very special starting her day with a delicious breakfast in bed!
2. Mom Trivia
Creative a trivia game that is all about mom. Use trivia questions on mom’s favorite things, least favorite things, treasured keepsakes, memories, etc. You can even include tricky trivia questions that the whole family might know but they need to be paying attention in order to answer correctly! Award fun prizes for who knows mom the best.
3. Plant a Garden Together
Has mom been wanting a garden of her own? Start a Mother’s Day tradition by getting the garden ready for the year with mom. You can plant a vegetable garden or just a few favorite flowers in potted planters. When she looks at her garden or the flowers she will be reminded of her special day.
4. Sing Your Hearts Out for Her
If your family loves to sing songs, you can all celebrate Mother’s Day with karaoke singing. To make the karaoke even special, choose songs around Mother’s Day. You can also pick songs that are special to the mom. Sing her favorite tunes or weeding song she danced to.
5. DIY Sundae Bar
Make your very own at-home ice cream parlor for Mother’s Day. Pick mom’s favorite ice cream flavor and toppings then place them all in a row on the kitchen counter. Everyone can go down the line and make their favorite ice cream sundae. Make sure you let the special mom go first.
6. Plan a Backyard Picnic
If the day is warm and full of sunshine, plan on having a backyard picnic for Mother’s Day. Make her favorite food and gather the family around for a great time. Mom will love spending time with everyone on her special day.

8. Make a Scrapbook
Are there photos of mom and the family laying around? Make a fun scrapbook on Mother’s Day. Work together with mom to create a fun scrapbook together. You can always have each family member create their own scrapbook for mom too.
