A mother’s arms are more comforting than anyone else’s – Princess Diana
Though this Mother’s Day, Sunday, 10th May’2020 will be quite different and may look dull due to the pandemic COVID’19 lockdown…. We won’t be able to go out for lunches/ Dinners; Take kids to their favorite hang-outs viz. Malls; send bouquets /greeting cards to our mothers/ mother-in-laws who stay far; wouldn’t be able to freely visit their houses even if it’s few kilometers away & so on…. But let us not further get upset about this situation and rather do something to make it special for mommies who are either staying with you or if you celebrating with her from a distance.
Here are some ideas which you can do during the lockdown to make your day even more special!

2. SCAVENGER HUNT:
Ask your mom to keep all her favorite things available at home in a basket viz. A book, any make up accessories; handbag; recipe book ; scarf; sandals & so on. So, what kids have to do is hide them in different places at home. Then, set a timer and let your Mom find them. You can also give her clue’s to make the game more interesting.
