Creative Activities to Celebrate Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is a special occasion dedicated to celebrating and honouring the mothers and mother figures in our lives. It’s a time to express gratitude for their love, sacrifices, and unwavering support. While traditional gifts like flowers and cards are always appreciated, why not make this Mother’s Day extra special with some creative and meaningful activities? Here are some ideas to help you celebrate Mother’s Day in a memorable way:

1. Homemade Brunch: 

Start the day off right by preparing a delicious homemade brunch for the special mother in your life. Get the whole family involved in the kitchen, whipping up pancakes, omelettes, fresh fruit salads, and decadent pastries. Set a beautifully decorated table with flowers and candles to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Enjoy a leisurely meal together, sharing stories and laughter as you savour each bite.

Pancake Station: 

Set up a pancake station with a variety of toppings and mix-ins for everyone to customize their own pancakes. Add toppings like fresh berries, sliced bananas, chocolate chips, whipped cream, and maple syrup.

Omelet Bar:

Create an omelette bar with a selection of fillings and ingredients for personalized omelettes. Provide options such as diced vegetables, cooked ham or bacon, cheese, spinach, mushrooms, and diced tomatoes.

Fresh Fruit Salad: 

Prepare a colourful fruit salad with a variety of seasonal fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, kiwi, pineapple, and mango. Toss the fruit together with a splash of citrus juice for a refreshing and vibrant dish.

2. Creative Crafting: 

Spend the day getting crafty with mom by working on some DIY projects together. Choose a craft that suits her interests, whether it’s painting, knitting, jewellery making, or scrapbooking. Gather supplies and set up a designated crafting area where you can let your creativity flow. Work on creating handmade gifts or decorations that mom will cherish, such as:


Purchase canvases, paints, and brushes and spend the afternoon creating beautiful

artwork together. You could paint landscapes, abstract designs, or even portraits of each other.


If mom enjoys knitting, pick out some colourful yarn and knitting needles and work on knitting scarves, hats, or blankets together. You could even learn a new knitting stitch or pattern together.

Jewellery Making: 

Get creative with beads, charms, and jewellery findings and design your own unique pieces of jewellery. You could make bracelets, necklaces, or earrings that reflect mom’s personal style.


Gather old photos, mementos, and decorative paper to create a scrapbook filled with memories and moments you’ve shared together. Add captions, stickers, and embellishments to make each page special.

3. Nature Walk: 

Take mom on a leisurely nature walk or hike to enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors together. Choose a scenic trail or park with picturesque views, and take your time exploring the natural surroundings. Here are some popular hiking spots in Vancouver:

Stanley Park: 

Explore the trails and seawall in Stanley Park, surrounded by lush forests, stunning waterfront views, and iconic landmarks like the Totem Poles and Prospect Point.

Pacific Spirit Regional Park: 

Discover the peaceful trails and serene beauty of Pacific Spirit Regional Park, located near the University of British Columbia. Enjoy a leisurely stroll through old-growth forests and along scenic creeks.

Visit Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver and hike to the historic Point Atkinson Lighthouse. Enjoy panoramic views of the ocean, rugged coastline, and surrounding islands along the trails.
