A Perfect Mother’s Day for Mom’s of Young Children

Perfect Mother's Day with young children

For moms with young children, a perfect Mother’s Day will have a fun activity with the kids which is fairly (and unusually) relaxing for mom.

Followed by some luxurious time away from kids.

If you do this right, I guarantee she will remember this day forever!

With this in mind, here’s how to give her a day filled with loved ones that is also relaxing:

  1. Plan an activity to do with the kids.
  2. Prepare really well so she won’t have to so much as pack a diaper bag.
  3. Incorporate one or two personal touches to make the day extra special and accentuate how appreciated she is.
  4. And finally, create some space later in the day for her to take a break from mothering.

I’m here to walk you through each step. Read on!

Choose a Kid-Friendly Mother’s Day Activity

Plan a short outing, no more than 2 hours.

This reduces the chance of kids getting cranky from overheating, hunger, excitement, etc.

Here are some ideas:

Easy Outings with Young Kids

Or keep it even simpler:

  • Go to a restaurant with playground and let kids play while parents sit and eat.
  • Take a walk around the neighborhood together.
  • Spend a couple of hours at the grandparents house together.
  • Garden and play in the yard for a few hours.

The important thing for a perfect Mother’s Day is having a pleasant time together with the least work or effort on mom’s part.

Best Ideas for Giving Mom a Break on Mother’s Day

Plan something special for later in the day that will be kids-free.

If you’ve been paying attention, you know whether mom is craving some time alone, time with friends, or a date night with you.

That, and available resources (babysitting), dictate what you will plan for later in the day.

Here are some ideas:

  • Get a babysitter and take mom out to a movie you know SHE wants to see. And dinner. And dessert.
  • Provide bubble bath or a book she’s been wanting, and take the kids out of the house for a minimum of 3 hours. Also provide chocolate.
  • Arrange for one or more of her best friends to take her out for a fun time while you stay with the kids.
  • Send her to a spa or just a manicure.
  • Time to get her hair done and/or go the gym or a yoga class.

Basically, time. Give her time for pampering herself.

Special Touches for a Perfect Mother’s Day

Anytime during the day, incorporate special touches:

  • Whip out a single rose at an unexpected moment.
  • Or leave a rose where she will find it. With chocolate.
  • Have the kids present a handmade card when you stop for lunch.
  • If she admires a trinket and you have a budget, buy it for her on the spot.
  • Chocolate.

And with that, you will have a very happy lady.

She will have had a PERFECT MOTHERS DAY.
