Mother’s Day is just around the corner and with the arrival of spring, there are an abundance of activities to do for seniors. Check out these activities for a fun Mother’s Day to remember.
1. Have a Picnic
Now that spring has finally arrived, Mother's Day is the perfect time to enjoy nature. Go to a nearby park and enjoy a stroll, eat a picnic lunch on the grass, and listen to the birds chirp in the trees above. Martin Luther is located on a beautifully wooded grounds perfect for an afternoon stroll.
2. Catch a Show
There are several fun events happening just a short drive away from Martin Luther Campus. On Mother's Day, May 12, at 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM, the Minnesota Orchestra in Minneapolis will be putting on a concert that will be a delightful experience for people of all ages. The Orpheum Theatre is putting on a show, “The Play That Goes Wrong” on May 12 at 1:00 PM and at 6:30 PM. This show is both a comedy and a murder mystery, so it will keep you guessing and laughing throughout the whole evening.
3. Enjoy a Sit-Down Meal at a Restaurant
Pick your favorite restaurant and share a meal with family and friends. This activity is simple, but it is a great experience and a wonderful environment to enjoy good food and bond with loved ones.
4. Have a Movie Night
Watching movies together is a casual activity that’s fun for all ages. Watch mom’s favorite movie and share one of yours with her for some great bonding time.
5. Bake Some Treats
Now that it is warming up, it’s time to start making treats like cupcakes and lemonade! You could either dig out an old family recipe or find a new, creative treat to make. Either way, fun memories are always made when cooking and baking in the kitchen!
6. Attend a Sporting Event
It’s not spring without baseball! The Minnesota Twins baseball team will be playing the Tigers at the Target Field at 1:10 PM on Mother’s Day. Bring the whole family along to cheer for the Twins and to enjoy an exciting baseball game.
7. Host a Game Night
A game night is always easy to put together and is a guaranteed fun evening for everyone! Have neighbors and friends bring over their favorite games and snacks for a game night to remember.
8. Arts and Crafts
Ignite your creative side by spending the afternoon painting, doing crafts, and making homemade decorations. This activity can be enjoyed by people of all ages- grandparents, kids, and everyone in between!
No matter how you celebrate Mother’s Day, the important thing is just spending time together.
