7 Mother’s Day Activities for Your Super Mom
Play games and start a puzzle.
Mom will love a day filled with laugher and friendly competition! Spend the day playing her favorite board games or start a puzzle. You can also surprise her with a puzzle gift that morning to put together. The best Mother’s Day gifts are thoughtful and meaningful. Personalized puzzles are especially heartfelt, featuring the mom’s name or photo. A 500-piece custom family tree puzzle that features family names will warm her heart. If you’re looking for photo-personalized gifts, a photo puzzle will be a big hit! Turn mom’s favorite photo or a picture of mom into a 500-piece puzzle that the whole family can put together.
Order her favorite takeout food and watch movies.
Get cozy on the couch and enjoy a relaxing movie day. Watch her favorite flicks, give her first pick of the snacks, and spend a peaceful day together. In between movies, surprise her with a sweet Mother’s Day gift. Rather than jewelry or a card, take your gift giving to the next level with a personalized gift like a Mother’s Day book. My Super Mom is a custom book that honors all the things she does for her family. Customize the book with her name, photo, skin tone, hair color, and a special dedication message. This keepsake will be treasured for years to come, and a gift she can read on the couch with her family.
Have a spa day at home with morning yoga flow and a bubble bath.
Treat mom to a day at the spa, all from the comfort of her home. Start the day with an online yoga flow class. There’s also kid-friendly yoga classes you can take as a family. Mom can soak her stretched muscles in a soothing bubble bath with candles and a good book. Complete your spa day with an at-home mani-pedi. Children can get involved too, painting their nails and trying out a kid-safe mud facial.
Bake desserts together.
Appeal to mom’s sweet tooth and bake up a bunch of delicious treats! This Mother’s Day activity brings the whole family together for fun in the kitchen, making mom’s favorite desserts.

This is a great Mother’s day idea for the creative, artistic mom. It also helps children learn how to express themselves with art!
Go on a family hike.
Enjoy the peace and tranquility of nature with a family hike. Visit a local state park or take a camper road trip to a good hiking spot. If there’s still snow in your state, put on some heavy-duty winter hiking boots and hit the trails! You can also go snowshoeing if there’s enough snow on the ground. This is a also perfect Mother’s Day activity for kids. Mom will love breathing the fresh air and taking in the beauty of nature.
