We have reached the fourth week during Mother’s Day Month, and we wanted to continue with the National Old Farmer’s Almanac. This is an old favorite for many and they have published a section regarding the 10 Fun and Creative Ways to Celebrate Mom this Year! We are down to #8-10 for your enjoyment:
8. Make a homemade gift! You don’t need to go out to a store and buy a gift. Mothers love gifts from the heart.
Think about homemade projects to make Mom a special gift for Mother’s Day. It can be in the kitchen or in her favorite room of the house.
9. Travel virtually to a museum or garden. Even if you’re not together, the wonders of technology make so much possible today. More and more museums are opening their “walls” to offer virtual tours!
Set up a Mother’s Day date for you and your Mom to visit the Louvre in Paris. Or how about the Vatican in Rome? Or the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City?
Would you rather take in the marvels of nature? Check out the Nature Conservancy virtual field trip in Oklahoma.
Is Mom a garden lover? The famous Holland tulip farm Keukenhof has created a virtual tulip tour. You could also visit Monet’s Gardens in France to see the waterlilies. Or how about taking a virtual trip to Hawaii to see tropical flowers?
10. Make your own card. Don’t forget to send a card in advance. In our home, it’s a tradition to make a homemade card every year. Moms love homemade! Go to Almanac at www.almanac.com and search for crafts and get busy making your own cards!
Wondering what to write in the card? How about sharing a funny story or happy memory of you and your Mom? It will make her smile!
