Mother’s Day 2013

  • Sharebar

Looking for something to do for Mother’s Day around the South Sound?

This list is only events specifically geared towards mom, but if you don’t find something, I also have an even bigger list of weekend fun for the whole family-from free festivals to quality family theater-any of which would make a great Mother’s Day outing. That will be up Friday morning, bright and early.

Read on for Mother’s Day events….

Make it for Mom

Kids’ Club at Michael’s Kids can stop in between 10-2 to make a heart necklace 2.00 per child/sessions start on the half hour

Sunday Free Admission for Mom on Sunday, Mother’s Day, at the Museum of Glass, The Tacoma Art Museum, and The History Museum  There are also special events planned-most of those require fees and reservations, so check in advance. If you just want to enjoy the museums, it’s free (If your “Name,” is Mom, that is).

Saturday and Sunday Mother’s Day at the Rhododendron Garden in Federal Way  Enjoy music while you stroll through the rhody garden; food cart on site with treats  Not a super exciting place for kids, but very pretty and reasonably priced.

Saturday Half-off admission for moms at Pt.Defiance Zoo Saturday, May 11th, plus many special activities. Expect a crowd at this one!

Sunday Free admission for moms and grandmas at the Hands-on Children’s Museum in Olympia  Sunday, May 12th

Treat Mom

Go here for my list of Mother’s Day teas. Check for dates and availability.

Most every area restaurant will also host a special brunch. These aren’t a bargain by any means, but if you’re interested, here are a few worth checking out:

Mother’s Day Brunch with Mt.Rainier Scenic Railroad.  Two times on Sunday. I find this kind of pricey, but it might be worth it for a train fan.

Mother’s Day Brunch at the Tacoma Art Museum

For more traditional restaurant brunches, try Open Table to see what’s available.

Reservations are a must for all of these.

Found this list Googling around? I’d love to have you subscribe to my emails or join us on Facebook. I write just for South Sound families, and I have new, fun ideas every day and big activities lists each Monday and Friday!

Nothing here that sounds just right for your mom? Check my weekend list for even more ideas!


  1. This event isn’t really FOR moms, but the Lowes Build and Grow is going on this weekend at all area Lowes stores. This workshop is a heart frame craft for kids to make for moms. I know my husband is taking our son to it.
