Celebrate Mom by spending time together this Mother’s Day. St. Louis offers lots of great opportunities for enjoying the big day. We’ve listed 10 popular possibilities.

  1. Stroll through Missouri Botanical Gardens. Enjoy the spring weather by getting to the garden. See the flowers and grab a bite to eat at the garden or one of the many great restaurants in the Hill neighborhood nearby.
  2. Catch a ballgame. It’s baseball season in St. Louis. Take Mom to see a Cardinals game or even a night of little league watching the grandkids play.
  3. Go shopping. If the weather’s nice, enjoy outdoor shopping in areas such as Chesterfield’s outlet malls or the Delmar Loop. Or, enjoy indoor shopping at an area mall where the temperature is always right and there are places to stop and rest.
  4. Visit a museum. St. Louis has numerous great museums to choose from, such as the Art Museum, History Museum and new Blues Museum. The Art Museum’s “Family Sundays” is a great family-friendly way to see the museum.
  5. Enjoy a park. Experience spring with a stroll or picnic in the park. Or, check out the newly renovated Arch grounds downtown for a scenic walk or picnic. If getting around the park is too much, go for a drive through beautiful Forest Park or Lone Elk Park.
  6. Eat at a favorite restaurant (or get take-out, if Mom prefers a quiet night in). If the weather’s nice, perhaps visit somewhere with patio dining and treat Mom to dessert at Ted Drewes Frozen Custard.
  7. Cook a meal (and/or dessert) together. If Mom always enjoyed cooking, spend some time together preparing a favorite dish.
  8. Host game night. If going out isn’t Mom’s thing, stay in with a puzzle, cards or board game.
  9. Enjoy a quiet night in. Similarly, enjoy staying in by watching a favorite movie, listening to favorite music or even reading aloud (especially for someone with visual impairment).
  10. Visit the Laumeier Art Fair (5/11/18-5/13/18). The annual art fair falls on Mother’s Day weekend and is a great treat for art fans or those who just want some social time in a beautiful setting.

These are just a few options. If you have a favorite activity that we left out, let us know in the comments.   

If you find that getting out requires more effort than it used to, please contact us. SHC caregivers help seniors continue to enjoy their independence and families continue to enjoy their time together. We’d love to discuss how we can help you or your loved one.
