The Ultimate At-Home Mother’s Day

Staying home during the coronavirus pandemic doesn't mean you have to give up your celebration of mom. Here are some tips to throw the best at-home Mother's Day.

Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Celebrating mom and everything she does for the family is definitely a must-do, but the 2020 celebrations are going to look a bit different for most families.

With the stay-home order in place, many of us may not be able to visit mom this year. For those lucky enough to get to see her, social distancing measures will keep us from celebrating exactly how we want to.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t give her a great Mother’s Day from the comfort of your own home. Check out some of our favorite activities, virtual events and other picks that are sure to inspire you and get to planning the ultimate at-home Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day meal

Start off mom’s special day by treating her to a delicious brunch. You can choose from Mother’s Day carryout specials offered by local restaurants or you can make your own simple brunch recipe.

One such can’t-miss event is the virtual hoedown Metro Parent is throwing with Chicago Parent and Miss Jamie from the Farm. It’s on Sunday at 11 a.m. and is just $10 (or whatever you can donate).
