Things to Do with Your Kids on Mother’s Day - #SoWorthIt


Today we share things to do with your kids on Mother's Day and how JCPenney can help, because mother's are #SoWorthIt.


Mother’s Day is the perfect time to call the shots. On this day, if on no other, you dictate how things will go! You may want to be pampered, appreciated and given “the day off” from mommy duty, or you may not be able to fathom spending the day without your children. Whether you have to or want to hang with the kiddos on this day, there are plenty of great ways to make the day special. Here’s a list of things to do with your kids on Mother’s Day that will create memories for years to come.


Go to the theater. Be it the movie theater, the ballet, a Broadway musical or a community theater play, go see a show. Introduce your kids to the performing arts and see something you’ve been wanting to for a long time. Oh, and take full advantage of the concession bar! If you're looking for something to wear, then you can check out JCPenney's wide range of clothing for both adults and children alike.

Visit the Salon. This will be a fun activity if you only have one or two children, and if they’re old enough to enjoy it. When your kids are forced to sit still, it’s a great time to get to know them better. Talk about school and their interests, but avoid anything too heavy or you’ll be held captive in awkwardness. Have you checked out JCPenney's Salon Services?

Plan a picnic in the park or on the beach. While it may not seem like anything special, when is the last time you seriously did this? Weather permitting, get outdoors! Pack special foods you don’t often buy. Try new things! Be sure to bring activities for while you’re there. Taking this time to unplug with your children will be worth it.


Go to a children’s museum. Make an entire day of exploring either your local children’s museum, or one that’s a little bit of a drive away. Let your inner child out to play with the kids and maybe even learn something new.

Get crafty. Remember when you were a kid and had fun making arts and crafts, even if you had zero artistic ability? It’s a stress reliever, and a great way to express yourself. You likely have a paint-your-own-pottery studio, or something similar, in your town. Bring your kids and enjoy creating in a space where someone else has to deal with the mess!

Go out to eat just for dessert. Since your kids were probably going to give or make you something sweet anyway, blow their minds by going out to a fancy restaurant just for the desserts!


Take me out to the ball game! Take the family to a baseball or soccer game (or any other games of your choosing). Dress the part, root for the team, and eat concession stand food!

Take a vacation. Go big or go small, as long as you get away! Plan a weekend excursion or a week-long adventure. Take a drive, a cruise or a flight…just go somewhere new that YOU’VE wanted to see. (While it’s a family trip, it’s still your day, and they’ll have fun just having a change in scenery.)

Go shopping
If all else fails, go shopping. There's nothing better than a bit of retail therapy. I particularly love shopping at JCPenney. They are my shopping destination of choice because they have such a wide variety of merchandise. From clothing to products for my home, I can find it all at JCPenney at affordable prices too.


For Mother's Day my family and I always go out to dinner and I've already gotten my clothing assemble. I got it at JCPenney and you can get my look by shopping at JCPenney too.

What do you love about JCPenney?

Get the look!




And to celebrate Mother's Day, JCPenney wants to offer one of my reader the chance to win a $25 JCPenney GiftCard. Winner will be randomly selected by PromoSimple and will have 48hrs to respond to the winning email. Failure to respond will mean forfeiting your prize and a new winner will be chosen. Prize will be delivered by JCPenney. Good luck!

  2. I love the great prices at JCPenney! I like their juniors and misses clothes.

  3. We do love JC Penney! We have one near our local Trader Joe's and Target so it's like a three-for-one of fun. I wouldn't mind hitting all three for Mother's Day. I actually booked my own Mother's Day brunch because it's a place I went to once, but then it closed to the public and is only used for weddings. I just found out they do brunch buffets on Sundays. I can't wait!
    After that I would love to go out for just desserts. That's special.

  4. I love love your hair and outfit! Going out for just dessert is so awesome! I would totally do that!

  5. It is just important to be with family on Mother's Day. You have a great list of things to keep a family active together including Penney's which I like a lot

    ReplyDelete
  6. A trip to the salon is always a great choice. There's nothing more fun than a mother/daughter day at salon.

  7. Those pants are adorable! The white shirt makes your hair pop like crazy!

    ReplyDelete
  8. These are all excellent ideas. I think my wife would love to go shopping with our daughter. Tied for that would be dual hair appointments.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Shopping is usually my go-to activity. The hard part now is shopping for me and not my kids. JC Penney has it all!

    ReplyDelete
  10. JC Penney's takes me back to my childhood, one of our family's favorite places to shop. I am loving your floral pants. Gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  11. My favorite idea is of a salon trip for Mothers Day. I kinda laughed at your thought about "being able to sit still" - but its true. All of your ideas, in general, would be fab gifts!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Cute look! I love the kids clothes at JCP. I do need to find a cute Mothers Day outfit because we are having a big family dinner.

    ReplyDelete
  13. What a classy outfit you put together! I also love your hair! That color is so pretty and vibrant.

    ReplyDelete
  14. We always make a trip the local greenhouse for our summer flowers. I let the girls pick out a few flats to brighten up the yard, then we spend the rest of the day planting together. Happy Mother's Day!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Going out to eat just for dessert is a genius idea. So is planning a picnic!

    ReplyDelete
  16. We usually go to our local production of Symphony Under The Stars on Mother's day, but this year we will actually be spending the later half of the day with my step mom and sisters

    ReplyDelete
  17. First of all I ADORE your outfit. You look incredible. This Mother's Day I'm leaving the day up to my husband so hopefully he does something special! - Jeanine

  18. Love JC Penny's, and those pants are adorable! We don't really have big plans for Mother's Day. We usually go to the beach, since we live minutes away. And there is always breakfast in bed.

    ReplyDelete
  19. We usually go out to eat, but this year we have a dog that can't be left alone. So we'll BBQ at home, then take her to a dog park together. I like the idea of just going out for dessert. We'll probably stop and get ice-cream at an outdoor stand!

    ReplyDelete
  20. These are great ideas! As a kid I used to love baseball games especially. I loved bringing my glove and hoping to catch a home run!! I never did, but one time friends of ours at a game with us did. A very exciting moment and lifelong memory.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Those pants are so cute! Love your whole look. For the record I went in there the other day to go to Sephora and ended up looking at the clothes after reading your blog! I came out with the cutest dress for $15 after my coupons!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I really like your outfit. I don't think I have ever seen pants like that - they really pop (in a good way!)!
    I also like the whole look - your choice of shoes is also excellent.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I used to always take my mom out for lunch on Mother's Day, but we don't live close anymore which makes me sad. My kids usually make me something for Mother's Day but I'm usually working which stinks but thats ok! I love your outfit, the capri pants are my fave!

    ReplyDelete
  24. A picnic is the route we're going, I do believe. I like for the kids to have fun on that day as well.

    ReplyDelete
  25. We aren't sure what we're doing for mother's day yet. These are all superb ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't have anyone to celebrate with and I'm not a mother. However, if I could choose, I would love to take a little vacation.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I am sure that if I get to spend any time with my daughter on Mother's Day that it will be shopping that we go and do. That seems to be our thing when we spend time together, and spend some money.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Great ideas and love that fabulous outfit you are wearing! We usually just go hiking but perhaps will change it up this year and do something different.

    ReplyDelete
  29. These are great ways to spend Mother's Day! I love your outfit, those pants are so much fun!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I always ask my family to go do something we don't normally do like go to the beach or a local baseball game. It is nice to get us motivated to do something out of the ordinary.

    ReplyDelete
  31. This outfit is so cute, love the pants! These are great ideas for Mother's Day, too

    ReplyDelete
  32. These are great ideas. I really like to just spend the day with them doing something fun.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love the idea to go out for just dessert! I have two very picky eaters, so going out to eat can be stressful. But they have yet to turn down dessert!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Great post! I love all of the ideas you suggested. I wouold have to say my kids would enjoy desserts and a family vacation the most!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great post! I loved all of your suggestions. I must say that my kiddos would enjoy desserts and a family vacation the most.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love these floral pants on you! I am going to Bahama Breeze with my kids for mother's day!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. There is always something to like at JC Penney! Love shopping there. For Mother's day, as with every year, me and my siblings meet up at my mom's house and have a good lunch and early dinner together. It is so heartwarming to see my mom's eyes lit up when her grandchildren and great grandchildren arrive.

    ReplyDelete
  38. My children are all grown up now, and they always have somewhere else to go. However, Mother's day is a "no fly zone" in my house, which means simply No flying out or no going out without me! We usually go to their grandmother's house, spend some time with her, then go to the mall so they can shop for MY gifts. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. These are really lovely ideas for this upcoming Mother's Day. Whatever it is, being with your family on this special days is the best way to spend it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love the deals and coupons that JcPenney always has, it's like a surprise at the check out ;)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I don't have kids of my own but these are great ideas! I loved treating my mom to different things during Mother's day when she was still alive. Whether it's for a spa or hair treatment or food, it was always the best! Can I just say how much I love your outfit? You definitely styled that top perfectly, the pants are stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Great post! I take my mom to brunch on Mother's Day. We live on a lake and the cruise boats have a special Mother's Day brunch plus we get spend the day on the lake!

    ReplyDelete
  43. these are great, easy to do tips for any mom, but I love your outfit!! totally might copy it, well, of course, if you don't mind :) I have the blouse and shoes, just need those pants

    ReplyDelete
  44. It's so hard to believe that Mother's Day is almost here! These are some great ideas for things to do with your kids on Mother's Day!
