Mother’s Day Ideas for Moms from All Walks of Life
Mother’s Day is a celebration of women who devote so much of their effort and energy to their families. Celebrating Mom on Mother’s Day lets her know all of her efforts haven’t gone unnoticed.
Mothers may perform similar tasks, but no two moms are the same. Finding ways to celebrate Mom’s uniqueness can make the day that much more meaningful and memorable.
The Crafter
Mothers who are avid craft- ers may enjoy a craft-themed Mother’s Day. A family crafting project can make for a fun after- noon and produce mementos that Mom will cherish for years to come. Dads and kids can plan the project in advance without Mom’s knowledge, arranging all of the materials ahead of time and setting up the crafting sta- tion the night before or while Mom is relaxing on Mother’s Day morning. Kids can even get a head start on the day by making their own craft for Mom and giving it to her as a Moth- er’s Day present. Dads can keep the craft theme going at dinner and get a laugh out of Mom by

The Reader
A 2017 survey from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics found that women read more than men. Women read an av- erage of 19.8 minutes per day, which can make a Mother’s Day focused on Mom’s love of books an ideal and unique way to spend the day. Kids can write Mom their own books, and Dad can help put them together. Dads can visit rare bookstores and look for original copies of Mom’s favorite books that she might not find elsewhere.
The Nature Lover
Fishing and other outdoor activities might have a reputa- tion as predominantly male hob- bies, but studies show that’s not really the case. A 2016 report from the Outdoor Foundation found that 46 percent of people who participated in outdoor ac- tivities were women.

for moms to begin Mother’s Day before they enjoy a brunch of dinner out with their families.
Mother’s Day celebrations can be as unique as the women being celebrated.
