Looking for something to do for Mother’s Day around the South Sound?
I have a list of mom-centric ideas here, but if you don’t find something, I also have an even bigger list of weekend fun for the whole family.
Make it for Mom
Make it; Take its at Michael’s A variety of craft projects kids can make for mom. Most are free with purchase of required supplies.

Moms ride free with any paying child, Mother’s Day weekend at the Northwest Railway Museum in Snoqualmie (Be sure to stop at the candy/ice cream shop).
Family Day at the Museum of Glass Saturday the 12th 1-4 It’s a family day, and artist Jennifer Adams will help the kids create a special flower bouquet. Included with admission. You Should be able to use the free library passes, if you can get ’em.
Buds and Blooms garden tour Mother’s Day weekend Various venues in Federal Way host two days of garden fun, including tours and activities and crafts for the kids. Tickets are 20.00 for adults/ 10.00 for 12 and up; free for kids 12 and under. Save by purchasing in advance.
Mother’s Day flute concert at the capitol Sunday the 13th
Half-off admission for moms at Pt.Defiance Zoo Saturday, May 12th, plus many special activities. Expect a crowd at this one!
Go here for my list of Mother’s Day teas. Check for dates and availability. Many are likely sold out, but who knows-you could get lucky!
Most every area restaurant will also host a special brunch. These are Pricey, but if you’re interested, here are a few worth checking out:
Mother’s Day Brunch at the Tacoma Art Museum (Note that the current gallery exhibit is on gender/sexuality and will be of interest to some but perhaps offensive to others. You make the call if you’re taking the mil).
For more traditional restaurant brunches, try Open Table to see what’s available.
Reservations are a must for all of these.
