Mother's Day games are a great way to break the ice and strengthen the bonds of family and friendship through fun, laughter, and maybe even a little friendly competition.
Mother's Day is a time to pay tribute to our Moms and celebrate all they do to enrich our lives. It's about being thankful and taking the opportunity to express our appreciation for their years of love and dedication. What better way to make Mom feel like a queen for the day than to host a party or family gathering in her honour. Or, maybe you would like to plan a ladies event to celebrate a whole group of amazing moms.
Whether you are organizing a family dinner to recognize one special lady or planning an afternoon tea for 20 awesome women, Mother's Day games and activities are a great way to keep everyone entertained.
It can be hilarious to watch guests act out some famous mom sayings such as:
And of course the ever ominous.....
You can also include a category for “Things Mom Does” with clues such as helping with homework, laundry, baking, or knitting.
For a larger party, display a baby picture as well as a current photo of each mom and have guests try to match each baby to the correct lady.
For a family gathering, show the guest of honor baby pictures of her children/grandchildren and see if she can identify each one correctly. You just may be surprised at how difficult this can be.
Trivia games are a fun and challenging way to test your guests knowledge of all things “mom”. Some ideas could include:
Or, make it more personal by creating a special trivia for one special lady and ask family members and/or friends to identify things like her favorite color, food, holiday, pet, or keepsake.
Scavenger hunts are a great way for guests to interact and work together as a team to complete a quest.
Make a memory book ahead of time or include it as a craft at your event.
Find, or write your own, funny anecdote about motherhood and watch young and old alike laugh, cheer, and maybe even get a little flustered while gifts are passed from left to right and back again.
There is no other holiday that garners more heartfelt poems and touching greeting cards than Mother's Day.
Hold a contest where each guest/team/family member writes their own poem or creates a Hallmark worthy card and then award prizes to the best, worst, funniest, or most thoughtful.
lady a teapot, cup and saucer, bowl, or vase and ask a florist to
teach everyone how to make their own unique flower arrangement. Or,
for something a little more tasty, make a cookie bouquet. If you have
the time, you may even want to have the ladies decorate the cookies
Bath salts are a luxurious gift and Mom will enjoy making them as much as she will using them.
Cupcake rose bouquets make for a beautiful centerpiece or gift idea for Mother's Day. We put together several last year in honour of moms and they loved them. If you have some cake decorating skills, yours will turn out even more lovely and more rose looking than ours.
