Have you been spending your weekends looking at Aiken, SC homes for sale? House-hunting is certainly a unique way to spend Mother’s Day, but it might be a better idea to put that activity on the back burner at least for one day. Here are some other ways to celebrate Mom’s special day:
If your mom is a fan of the ballet or theater, treat her and your family to an afternoon matinee at your local theater. It’s not only a great bonding experience for the family, but it’s also a good way to instill a love of the arts in children from an early age.
Give your mother a break from cooking by treating her to brunch or dinner at her favorite restaurant. Or better yet – surprise her with a family picnic. Just make sure dad and the kids do all the work. Remember, it’s mom’s day off!
Donate money, clothing or other household items to organizations that help mothers and children in need. Or make a donation to your mom’s favorite charity, in her name.
Create a living scrapbook for your mother. Video tape members of the family sharing the special things they love most about mom. Include special memories, favorite recipes, maternal words of wisdom – anything that you want to remember.
Make a personalized tablecloth memento. Using fabric pens, have each member of the family write a special message to mom on the cloth. Children can make their handprints, too.
