Mother's Day is almost here. What are you looking forward to most? This year I do not get to look forward to being pampered and having hubby take charge of the kids since my husband will be working out of town. Instead I am looking at some special activities to do with the kids.

1. Make a book: Reading is a favorite activity in our house so making a book about our family is something the kids will really get into and they can all help. You can buy a book making kit at a store, but why not make the whole thing yourself? Cut out a cereal box to use for a cover. Grab some paper, pictures, crayons, and pencils scissors and glue. All ages can help. For the older kids have them think of a favorite day you spent together as a family, or a favorite activity you all do together. They can write it out, while younger children draw the pictures to go with it or help glue on photos. Mom can also add a favorite thing about each child. Add as many stories as you like. You can take the book to a local office supply store and have it bound for you.

2. Cook together: Make a favorite family dish or teach the children how to make your favorite dessert. For children too young to help, give them a pan with a little bit of cereal in it so they can feel like they are helping. Help older children measure while younger children pour and mix. Make sure everyone has a job when cooking and teach them to clean as they go!

3. Watch a movie together: Everyone cuddle together on the couch for a classic family movie. Even better, move the TV outside and set up blankets in the backyard.

4. Exercise together: Children love to be active and move and moms love to exercise. For toddlers grab a silly song cd and just dance around, not being afraid to be silly. Take a hike through a new park with your older kids or go on a family bike ride.

There are so many fun activities you can do with your kids isn't that what Mother's Day is all about anyways?
