Mother’s Day is right around the corner! This Sunday, May 13th is the perfect excuse to have a day completely dedicated to spending time with your family. While moms should be celebrated every day for all their hard work, compassion, and patience, Mother’s Day is all about moms! And as moms, we all want to spend this special day with our sweet families. Here are a few ideas of how to spend time with your kids this Sunday.
Bake a Sweet Treat
Are you the primary cook in your family? Make it a family affair and get everybody in the kitchen to bake something absolutely delicious. My husband must have something sweet to eat before he goes to sleep every night, so the sweet tooth is big in this household! Baking one of these yummy dessert recipes with your kids means you’ll get to spend time together and you’ll all get to enjoy dessert afterward.
Get Some Exercise
It’s springtime, which means it’s the perfect opportunity to get outside and enjoy the gorgeous weather as a family! You don’t need to spend Mother’s Day cooped up in the house, so get outside and get moving. Take the dog for a walk around the block, go for a hike somewhere around your house, or go on a bike ride as a family! If you’re in the mood for some friendly competition, enjoy a backyard family game like cornhole or giant Jenga!
If you just want to relax on Mother’s Day, gather everyone in the living room and watch a variety of family approved movies! Make it an all-day event and make popcorn and just lay on the couch together watching films all day. If you want to avoid making dinner or going out to eat, order a pizza to enjoy while you watch. You’ll have a blast just hanging out in the same room and enjoying each other’s company.
Learn Something New Together
You can learn a lot from your kids, and they can learn plenty from you too! Take this Mother’s Day as an opportunity to do something all of you have never done before. Learn how to fly a kite or skateboard down your driveway or even have your own backyard garden! No matter what activity you choose, you’ll have so much fun learning something new with your kids. And to keep your kids learning this summer, try out these ideas!
Reflect on Bible Verses
Mother’s Day is the perfect time to sit down with your family and reflect on how blessed you truly are. Reflect on these Mother’s Day bible verses with your kids! This special holiday is a great day to celebrate, but it’s important to take a moment to be grateful for all we’ve been given. Take turns and have everyone read a few bible verses so you can all take in the meaning of each!
Embrace the season and use the day to make spring crafts with your kids! Make your own flowers out of tissue paper or create lots of bugs like caterpillars and ladybugs using pom poms and colorful paper. Crafts are a fun way to get your creative juices flowing, and it’s even better when you get to craft alongside your children. When everyone’s done, hang the crafts in the windows or on the fridge so they’re on display for everyone to enjoy!
