Mother’s Day is a special time to celebrate all those amazing mums out there who have been absolutely incredible, especially over the past year when parenting has been a particular challenge. We’ve got some tips for some special ways you can celebrate Mother’s Day both with your little ones in person, and remotely with loved ones you’re unable to see.
Take Mothering Sunday as an opportunity to spend some lovely, quality time together doing something really fun! Why not bake together? Choose a new recipe you’re excited for, or an old favourite and enjoy the process. When you’re done, sit down for an extra special afternoon tea with the treats you’ve made together.
A really special activity to share with your little one is looking back on old memories together! Go through old pictures and videos of your favourite parenting moments, old crafts they’ve made, any keepsakes from their birth or baby days. This is a really special way of celebrating your motherhood journey, and getting your little one involved too!
This year, Mother’s Day might be especially hard for lots of families unable to see loved ones. If you’ve got a mum or grandmother that you won’t be able to see, why not plan some special virtual activities to do together? Here are a couple of ideas!
Why not try a craft together? There are lots of craft project kits out there, and you can pick one up for both you and your loved one that you can do together over video call. How about cross stitch or painting by numbers? Set aside some time every week, or however often you like, to call each other and make a little progress – this will give you the chance to spend some valuable time together even when you can’t see each other in person.
Even if you’re apart on Mother’s Day, you can still watch a movie together! Choose one of your joint favourites, or something you’re both looking forward to seeing and have a virtual cinema date! Video call each other when you watch, and chat about the movie just like you would if you were watching in the same room.
