Mother's Day 2020

With the closure of schools and many daycares, many moms will miss out on the handmade creations and traditions that they have become accustomed to. We are here to rescue Mother’s Day and help put a smile on everyone’s faces with a number of ideas. Moms, if you are reading this, we have no judgement if you selfishly print/prepare these activities for your child(ren)…you deserve it, do your best to act surprised. 

As always, follow us on social media! Show us how you celebrated the day by using the hashtag #Fridleymomsday2020

Coupon Book

A classic, Mother’s Day staple – the coupon book. We’ve created custom coupons for you to simply fill out and print. Kids have the opportunity to show off their creative side by designing their own cover.

Handprint Art Project/Poem

Another time-honored tradition is handprint art. Moms love comparing hand prints from year to year, seeing how much their child has grown. To complete this project, print the below document. Paint child’s right hand and have him/her, place hand in the area to the right of the poem. Dry. A less messy/independent option is to have child trace his/her own hand.

Recipe Corner

Here, we have provided a couple, easy, non-cook recipes to surprise mom with breakfast in bed! Potentially messy, might be a good idea to have an adult assist the little ones.


Let the Fun Begin

Here’s to hoping the weather is nice and folks will be able to get out and enjoy it. We’ve put together a few fun ideas to get the family up and outside the house! One super awesome activity is the Fridley Parks and Recreation’s Moving Forward 50K! It’s a great way to get moving (and earn a cool t-shirt).
