It’s time to start planning a special day for mom. Getting kids involved in simple ways can help your kids truly celebrate everything they love about their mom! Mother's Day is May 13, 2021, so, get your kids involved using these fun ways to celebrate mom:
1. Kids Can Help Make Breakfast
Help mom’s make one of her favorite meals. It is a great way to kick off Mother’s Day. Kids of almost any age are able to help by stirring, pouring or measuring, while older kids may be able to manage the meal all by themselves. Helping to make a meal reminds kids to show love through simple acts of service.
2. A Day Out With Mom
Moms are busy! Celebrate mom by making the day all about her. Think about what she loves to do and make it happen. While some COVID restrictions may limit recreational opportunities, be creative.
Movie Night: Does mom love to go to the movies, but your theatre is still closed? Find her favorite movie on your streaming platform, pop some popcorn, turn out the lights, and enjoy the movie from the comfort of your own couch.

3. A Handmade Card is a Treasure
Every mom loves a thoughtful, handmade card from her kids. Pull out the glue, glitter, stickers, and markers and let kids get creative. Don’t worry about misspelled words or backward letters. These are gifts to treasure!
How to Celebrate While Mom is Deployed
Consider making a memory box to send to mom while she’s away. Find a small box or tin from a craft store and decorate. Have kids write down their favorite memories with mom on strips of paper, photos, special items the kids have collected for her and put them in the box. You can even head to your local library and make something special in the Makerspace area.
Mom will enjoy the thoughts, items, and photos this Mother’s Day!

When most people think of libraries, they usually think books. Anyone working in a library today, however, knows that they are so much more than just books. In recent years, many public and academic libraries have begun to develop spaces for activities that both teach and empower patrons to try new and emerging technologies to explore the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) realms.
