There are lots of fun games kids can play with their moms. One such game is a matching game. Have one person run the game. Give the mother and kids cards to write answers on. Ask questions and each time a child's answer matches the Mother's, that child gets a point. Plan on asking 10 questions. Whoever gets the most right answers at the end wins. Here are some question suggestions.

If mom was an animal, she would be a _______.

Online Mother's Day Games

There are lots of fun online games for kids to play for Mother's Day. Kids can play them alone or along with their Mother. Here are some to try and I've written a short description for each one so you know what they're about.

Mother's Day Activities

As Mother's Day is in the spring, most likely the weather will be nice. Why not plan a Mother's Day picnic? Put together a nice picnic lunch. Lunch suggestions include sandwiches, fresh fruit, cheese and crackers, some type of salad, (such as green, potato macaroni or cold slaw,) chips and beverages. Be sure to bring along some items to play with such as balls or Frisbees.

How about a Mother's Day tea? Serve beverages and finger food. Be sure to dress for the occasion and to make Mom feels really special, send her an invitation in advance.

Give Mom a day at the spa. If funds allow, gift her with a day at the spa. Otherwise, set up your own spa at home. Fill a container with bubble bath and water so she can soak her feet. While soaking, use lotion and give her hands a nice message. Be sure to play some of her favorite music so she can relax and enjoy every moment of it.

Have some favorite family games? Gather everyone up and play some. If your family enjoys putting together jigsaw puzzles, pull one out and everyone can participate in putting one together.

Planning to give Mom some gifts? Hide them and let her find them. Write out clues as to where each gift is located and let her find them.

If the weather is nice, spend some time outdoors. Have a Silly String fight or blow some bubbles. A game of Hide and Seek can also be fun.

Mother's Day Word Search

Word searches can be quite fun for kids. Not only are they challenged for finding the words, they also feel such a sense of achievement when they do. They are quite popular in my home. Here are some that are great for Mother's Day.

Mother's Day Makeover

Why not treat Mom to a beauty makeover? Children can give Mom a facial, then afterwards, do her makeup. Just be sure that Mom can help if eye makeup is being applied.

Kids can also give Mom a new hairstyle to go along with her makeup as well as paint her fingernails. Be sure to take before and after photographs.
