Mothers Day Picnic
A Mothers Day picnic is a unique gift for your mom. A picnic provides her with the most precious gift – Time. Give Mom some very special, quality time with the ones she loves and give her a little time off from her job, housework, errands ...
(In Canada and the U.S.A., Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May.)
Because a Mother’s Day picnic takes very little planning, it is really easy for dad and the kids to make it happen:
Or, if you really don’t have any confidence in the kitchen, go to your nearest deli and pick up a few ready-made sandwiches to go. And, yes, perhaps that box of chocolates. Please, DO NOT let Mom prepare it – you’re giving her some time off, remember?
Your Mother's Day picnic destination can take you an hour or two away from home, to your local favourite park, or even the zoo. You could also plan a wonderful Mother's Day picnic in your own backyard; and if it rains, simply go indoors. (This is also a good idea for Mothers of very young children who could simply be taken in for their afternoon nap.)
Families with younger children could also combine a Mother's Day picnic with a Teddy Bear's picnic. Outdoor games are always fun too. Or, combine your picnic with a family hike.
Mother's Day Picnic Gift Ideas
Mom could look forward to many more family picnics if you provided her with some fresh picnic accessories!
A picnic basket
or picnic cooler is a unique Mother's day gift idea. Pre-filling it with delicious picnic food and taking her out makes it an extra-special day!
Already have a picnic cooler? Perhaps Mom would enjoy a cozy new picnic blanket
to relax upon. I highly recommend looking for picnic blankets with a waterproof backing - they perfect for damp grass and at the beach!
Is Mom a gardener?
As a mom myself any gift for the garden is a welcome gift!
Enjoy your Mother's day picnic, and say
“Thanks, Mom, for all that you do”.
