Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 11th and, as a student, you probably don’t have much free cash to show
your mother a little appreciation on her special day. The good news is
that Mother’s Day isn’t really about spending money so much
as it is about showing your mother that you really appreciate all the
things she does for you. When it comes to Mother’s Day, it’s
the sincerity and the thought that counts. Here are some really great
ways to show your mother a little love on her special day.
Keeping it Clean
While doing chores that you are already responsible for doesn’t count,
you can do work your mother would normally do to make her life easier.
Do the laundry, wash her car, clean the house or do all the cooking for
a week. Giving her a break will not only make her day, it will also give
you an idea of just how much work she puts in to her family and her home.
With exams and end of term stress, most of you have not yet been able to
enjoy the warmer summer weather. Plan a picnic with your family so that
you can all spend some time together. Take your mother to the park or
to another great natural setting. Make a lunch or dinner for the family
to share including all her favorite foods. Pack some outdoor activities
such as soccer or baseball for added family fun.
If you mother likes going to the movies or the theatre, take her out to
see a show on Mother’s Day or stay at home and watch her favorite
movie with her (even if it’s not your favorite movie!) You can make
some popcorn and prepare all her favorite snacks too.
Dinner El Fresco
If you are planning to cook your mother a special meal for Mother’s
Day, then take it outside! Dinner on the roof, in the garden or in the
park is a great way to make a family meal even more fun. Play charades
after dinner or bring a board game that you all enjoy.
Putting in the time and effort to do something different for your mother
is what will make Mother’s Day special for her. Making a cake, creating
a card, writing a poem or cooking a special meal is a fool-proof way of
showing appreciation on her special day. Your mom does so much for you
and she really deserves a little bit of creativity and imagination this
