5 Fun Ways To Spend Mother's Day

This Mother's Day, why not get the whole family together for some creative fun and games? Here are a few ways to inject some love and laughter into your Mother's Day celebration.

Mother's Day Fun

Home Movies.

One good way to share family memories is to look at old photographs or home movies. If you live near the Grandparents, ask them to pull out old photos and movies of you as a child, and take a trip together down memory lane. Your kids will get a kick out of the styles of clothes you wore -- not to mention the fact that you were once a baby, toddler, or teen.

Make Some Music.

Nothing brightens a family celebration quite like music. But if you want to really turn up the volume on fun, stage your own karaoke party. To begin, have each family member choose a favorite song. Then turn on the music, and let each person lip-synch the words to the song, doing his or her best to mimic the performer. (Your 3-year-old, for instance, can pretend he's Barney singing the "I Love You" song.) Other family members can rate the performance from one (not at all like the performer) to five (exactly like the performer), and write down their score on a card. The person with the highest score wins.

Plant Flowers.

If you have some extra space in your garden, you can create a real, live Mother's Day canvas. First, buy various packets of flower seeds that grow fast and well in your region. Then have your kids draw a picture or write a short message (like "We love Mom") in the garden dirt with a stick. Drop the flower seeds into the dirt lines; then cover them up, and water every few days. Before long, your picture (or message) will be blooming, and you'll have a Mother's Day gift that keeps on growing.

Read A Great Book.

If you want to have some downtime on Mother's Day, take a blanket outside and leaf through a children's book that's just right for the day. You could also select one of your own childhood favorites, and read it with your kids.

Make Time For Love.

Finally, what would Mother's Day be like without hugs and kisses all around? One way to work them into your day is by setting up a silly "hugs and kisses" schedule and posting it on the refrigerator or other visible spot. For instance, you could write, "10:30 a.m.: Everyone runs around the couch and gives Mom a hug and kiss." or "2:15 p.m.: Everyone hops around the oak tree on one foot and assembles for a group hug." Make up your own directions and silly things to do -- but be sure to include lots of hugs, kisses, laughter and love in your day.

11 Crafty Shirts You Need In Your Life

Making things with our hands is just part of being human. Just about all of us worked on some sort of craft as children, and some of us grew up and still do it. Yarn, fabric, paper, needles, glue, glitter, wood or plastic, there are millions of ways to put it all together and the number of projects available on the internet is staggering. Although most people can tell you are a crafter by the threads stuck to your pants, or the glue on the back of you hand, we think these shirts will help you clarify what you love to those you see.
