While we might not be able to gather for our usual traditions, we can still celebrate special days and moments in a new way. Here are a few ideas to honor the moms in your life this Mother’s Day.
Moms love receiving items made from the heart. Check out these videos from our Interpretive Rangers to create a crafty keepsake. These crafts can be created using items commonly found at home and by people of all ages, including kids with a little adult supervision.

Brunch in Bed (or at the park!) – Treat mom to a homemade Mother’s Day brunch. Practicing social distancing to protect your loved one? Have brunch delivered from one of Louisville’s amazing local restaurants. Deliver in person to enjoy together from a safe distance. If the weather is favorable, consider a socially distanced picnic in The Parklands or your neighborhood park, followed by a hike or bike ride.
Lean on Technology – Thanks to modern technology, time together is still possible using tools like FaceTime, Zoom live and Facebook Messenger/Portal.
