What’s a better Mother’s Day gift than spending time with the kid or kids that made you a mother? A mommy & me day is a perfect way to spend Mother’s Day. Our oldest kiddo really loves to have a “girls day” and she loves to plan things out to do. She loves to have a day or a couple of hours out of the day where it’s just us. Kids loves things like this and it makes them feel special as they should since he or she will get all of your attention. Instead of giving you gift ideas I am going to give you different ways you can spend Mother’s Day with your son or daughter.
Have a Photo Shoot
Capture your Mother’s Day moments with a photo shoot that you can always cherish. Get dolled up and have some fun! Do each other’s nails if you have a girl. Use Pinterest as inspiration for some mommy and me poses.
Go to the mall and buy matching outfits to wear one day or wear it that day. I think mommy and me outfits are too cute! Grab a bite to eat and then stop by the ice cream/yogurt shop and treat yourself to some goodies. See who can make the best ice cream creation.
Plan a meal together and let your child help you prepare it. You can have a Mother’s Day breakfast, lunch, or dinner or you can simply bake some cookies or some other fun dessert. If you’d rather not cook on your special day then go out to eat at your favorite spot and make it a mommy and me date!
Go to the Park
Kids ALWAYS love to go to the park. Plan some activities that you guys can do together so you enjoy yourself as well. Ride your bikes together. Have a water gun/water ballon fight. Have a picnic. Play kickball. Play catch. Go at night and star gaze.
Movie Marathon Day
Don’t feel like going anywhere? Grab the popcorn and have a movie marathon day! Get all of you and your child’s favorite movies ever and watch them back to back to back.
Have a competition and see who can catch the most fish! Enjoy the great outdoors and the view. Watch the sunset. Skip rocks on the water. Enjoy the fresh air.
This will be tons of fun! If you’ve never been ice skating before then give that a go! Or simply do some roller skating at the skating rink. If your child has never been skating this will be a fun experience and one that your child will never forget.
Let Your Child Decide
Let your child do whatever their little heart desires. Let them know that you’d love the gift of their time and you’d like to do some fun and special things on your day. You may be surprised at just what your son or daughter comes up with.
