It’s Mother’s Day this Sunday, 9 May. If you’re looking for something more than just a card and a new pair of fluffy slippers, we have some ideas on activities and experiences you can do to celebrate the Mums in your life this Mother’s Day.

For the fitness fanatic

For the Mum that wears her activewear for more than just the morning coffee run, there are plenty of fun activities to celebrate the day.

The Mother’s Day Classic fun run returns in 2021, but this year it’s going local! Visit the website to find an event near you, or sign up for a virtual run, and contribute to a great cause.

If you prefer to sweat it out at home, why not try one of the Living Stronger home workouts with Mum? Designed with all fitness levels and abilities in mind, you can both go at your own pace.

A family feast is a Mother’s Day ritual for many families. Why not let Mum have a seat at the table this year, or better yet – why not cook together? Melbourne social enterprise Free to Feed has plenty of delicious cooking experiences you can do with your Mum.

If you fancy a cook up at home to go at your own pace, they also have virtual cooking classes , or you can try out one of these delicious recipes from our 3 Farmers and a Chef series, or whip up a snazzy sambo from the Celebrity Sandwich collection.

There has never been a better time to get out on the open road and make some memories with your family for Mum’s special day. With regional Victoria open and ready for visitors to return, you’re not only celebrating – you’re aiding in the recovery of towns that have done it tough. And what’s not to love about that?

Unsure of where to go? Here are a couple of ideas to get those wanderlust vibes going, whether it’s a weekend away discovering Gippsland, or a day trip down the coast to explore the Great Ocean Road, you can make some beautiful memories together for your Mum’s special day.

Is your Mum a Thespian-loving, music-devouring, theatre fanatic? Whether it’s musical theatre, comedy or live music that makes her eyes light up, The Arts Centre Melbourne has something she will enjoy this weekend or book in a day out to spoil her.

If you can’t make it to the big smoke, never fear! The Arts Centre Melbourne have plenty of events and content still available to enjoy online.

If you’re enjoying the comfort of home, you can also check out our FCAC Music series, escape with a dance class from Chunky Move, or catch up on the Stand Up Sessions comedy series for a good belly laugh on the couch after that big Mother’s Day feast.

Families come in all shapes and sizes, and some can’t be together this Mother’s Day for many different reasons.

So, to all the Mother figures in our lives, from Victoria Together, we wish you a Happy Mother’s Day!
