Most people treat Mom to a nice meal outside the house on Mother's Day. And, why not? You know she would prefer to visit with the family rather than mess up the kitchen. With the nicer weather this time of year brings, consider a day at the park vs. going to an over crowded restaurant. Getting outside is refreshing. Packing a simple healthy lunch will keep calories lower than eating out. The best part will follow. Playtime! Moms love watching their loved ones interact. She might even join in on the fun. Active ideas include kickball, relay races, frisbee, flag football, bean bag toss, ladder golf, small sided soccer game, or simply stroll through the park appreciating the nature around you. It's a great way for the family to bond. What better gift could you offer Mom!
