Mother’s Day 2021: Top 5 Covid Safe Ideas for Mother’s Day Celebration
Mother Knows Best
She is the first face you see when you are born, the one who feels your happiness and your pain as much as you, the hand that holds you when you first learn to walk till you can safely go out into the world as an adult. Whether you call her Maa, Aai, Amma, Mouj, Imma, Mom, or Mataji, the word is one of the most spoken ones in India.
A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take.– Cardinal Mermillod
Mother’s day 2021, much like last year, is going to be celebrated inside. But don’t let that bring you down; after all, expressing love isn’t confined to gestures like going out for a meal or buying a luxurious gift. Instead, let’s look at a few indoor mother’s day celebration ideas that will make her happy while keeping her safe.
Cook a Meal Together on Mother’s Day
One of the best mothers day gifts is showing your love and appreciation for her hard work every day. And what better way to do that than giving her a helping hand during cooking? Give her a surprise by asking her to help you make her favorite dish. Or you can whip up a new editing dish depending on what’s available in your fridge. After all, staying home is a must these days, even if it means not making the dish you want to. You can help your mother by chopping up ingredients, mixing the spices, or even using the rolling pin. And if your mother ultimately shoos you away from the kitchen, you can always wash the dishes as a present!
Watch Her Favorite Movie on Mother’s Day
When was the last time you watched a movie with your mother? With theatres closed nationwide, there is even more reason to pick up a movie and spend quality time together. Let this be a chance to learn all about your mother’s favorite movie, favorite actors, and vice versa. Here is a quick game to jazz up the mother’s day celebrations.
- Write down 3 of your choice of movies in separate pieces of paper and ask your mother to do the same.
- Fold up the pieces in the same way and put them together in a bowl.
- Shuffle the papers.
- Ask your mother to pick a paper at random that decides what movie you get to watch.
Make yourself some homemade popcorn and dim the lights for an ideal theatre-like experience.
Prepare a Handmade Gift for Her on Mother’s Day
When your mother said anything you give her is special, she wasn’t lying. Not only for parents, but for everyone else, handmade gifts mean a lot. If you are running short of time, the quickest way to wrap up a gift is to make a handmade mother’s day card with greetings. Other handmade gifts can be a no-bake cake, DIY jewelry, or even a bouquet made of flowers you picked yourself. Don’t forget to tell your mother how much you love her while giving her the gift.
Make a Scrapbook with Your Mom
This year start the mother’s day celebration with a trip down the memory lane. Our fast lifestyle hardly lets us take a breather. Scrapbooking can be a good bonding activity as you brush up on your precious old memories. This is particularly true for parents; after all, every one of us heard the “you grew up so fast” line once in our lives. The good thing about making a scrapbook is that you can use anything on hand. So just get a notebook, take out your old pictures and craft materials and ask your mother to join you in creating a timeline of your life together.
Have a Mother’s Day Special Dance/Workout Session
This last mother’s day celebration idea is perfect for the active mother and child combination! Exercising out in public is riskier than ever. With gyms closed indefinitely, it’s time to convert your house into one. On this Mother’s day, transform working out with your mother into a bonding time in just three steps.
- Step 1: Create a special playlist full of fun and energetic songs.
- Step 2: Write down some creative dance or exercise moves that you want to practice.
- Step 3: Take out your sports outfits and sweat it out to the tune together.
The physical activity is a perfect solution to starting the day with a bang!
However, in the end, the ideal Mother’s Day celebration is spending time with your mom. In our busy lives, from school to work to other responsibilities, we forget to cherish and show appreciation to people we love the most. Instead of remembering mother’s day 2021 as the year we were confined within our houses, let’s try to recognize it as a day that we got even closer to our mothers.
