As Mother’s Day approaches, take a look at some ways you can give your mom a special holiday.

Breakfast in bed: Start celebrating the day early by serving mom breakfast in bed. Let dad help supervise in the kitchen, and make sure any mess is cleaned up when you’re done.

Family outing: Plan a fun family day filled with activities the whole family will enjoy doing together. Some options are going to the zoo, going on a picnic, taking a walk, playing in the park or seeing a movie.

Visit grandma: Take time to remember not only your mom on Mother’s Day, but also your grandmothers and even great-grandmothers.

Give mom the day off: If your mom wants to spend the holiday relaxing, give her the whole day off. Have the rest of the family pitch in to do any chores around the house, prepare the meals and let mom spend the day pampering herself.

Host a dinner: Invite your family and friends over to help celebrate Mother’s Day by having dinner together.

Help mom in the garden: If your mom likes to garden, spend the day getting her garden ready for the season. Get mom new plants, new accessories and help her with the weeding and planting.
