Mother’s Day is approaching. We all have our traditions for this special holiday.

Make this year even more memorable by going on a fun adventure.

Here are 7 different ways you spend this Mother’s Day. Between the wide range of options, you are bound to find the perfect activity for your one-of-a-kind mom!

Special Activities for Mother's Day -- Preppy & Periwinkle

Cooking Class — for the foodie mother

If your mother is known for her home-cooked meals, a cooking class is the best way for you to spend the day together. Maybe you can roll up some fresh sushi or bake a batch of decadent macaroons. Your mother will be excited to add a new dish to her repertoire, but this one will always evoke special meaning. In order to find a class, look on your local parks and recreation website, scan through Groupon or check out culinary sites like Sur La Table.

Paint and Wine Night — for the artsy mother

Wine, paint, more wine and laughter — what can be better? Paint and wine nights are a trending new way to spend time with friends. Treat your mom to one of these creative events filled with messy paint and giggles. To find a good deal near you, check out Groupon or Living Social.

Bike Ride — for the athletic motherangelina-litvin-39780

Does your mother have trouble spending the day inside relaxing? A day on your bikes is the perfect Mother’s Day bonding activity. Wipe off those seats, pump up those tires and spend the day on two wheels. Cruise down the beach or along a local trail. Instead of driving to Mother’s Day brunch, incorporate it as one of the stops along your pedaling adventure.

Nature Hike — for the adventurous mother

For the mother always looking to take a risk, a hike through uneven terrain will get the blood flowing and allow for some fun and sweaty memories. One of the best parts about hiking is you can tailor the trip to your preferred difficulty and length. To find the perfect trail near you, check out AllTrails.com. For all the newbie hikers out there, don’t forget to pack these essential items on your first adventure.

Museum Exploration — for the bookworm motherVersion 2

Is your mother always looking to learn something new, whether it is about Renaissance art or space exploration? If so, find a nearby museum she has never been to or perhaps one of her favorites that is featuring a new exhibit. Even if the topic isn’t your favorite, getting intellectual with her will make the day memorable.

 

Paint and Wine Night — for the artsy mother

Wine, paint, more wine and laughter — what can be better? Paint and wine nights are a trending new way to spend time with friends. Treat your mom to one of these creative nights filled with messy paint and giggles. To find a good deal near you, check out Groupon or Living Social.

Plant a Mini Garden — for the down-to-earth mother

Do you constantly find your mother stopping to smell the roses, literally? If so, a day planting new flowers in her yard will create lasting memories (even if the flowers don’t end up surviving through the spring season). You can buy some gorgeous flowers to plant in the front yard, or try starting with seedlings if you are feeling risky. If your mother also likes to spend time in the kitchen, start a mini vegetable garden instead.

Scrapbooking Day — for the DIY-loving mother

Is your mom one of those who always whips out the photo albums at family gatherings? If so, a day of scrapbooking is the perfect way to spend this special day. Prepare all of the materials beforehand! Make copies of her favorite family pictures and purchase supplies  from your local craft store. Don’t forget the colored paper, glitter, stickers, etc. Oh, and bring some good tunes to listen to as you get crafty.

If your mother doesn’t already have her own scrapbook to add to, check out Michaels or Jo-Ann for a good deal on a book she can quickly fill up. Both websites have copies of their weekly coupons so no need to pay full price!


Now it is time to get planning! I hope you are able to make some lasting memories and perhaps establish a new tradition!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the strong and selfless moms out there!

Until next time,

P&P ❤
