10 Healthy Mother’s Day Activities for the Whole Family

Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Instead of scrambling the day before for fun, healthy activities to do with mom, check out the list the Your Health Idaho team put together with plenty to do whether you want to stay home or get outside!

If you are staying home, you could:

  • Make mom breakfast in bed: Who doesn’t love breakfast in bed? Scramble some eggs, toast some bread, and pour the coffee!
  • Spend the day gardening: Support Idaho businesses by buying flower, fruit, or vegetable seeds at a local nursery or flower shop. Then, help mom plant the seeds on Mother’s Day. Keep up the garden throughout the year, and you’ll be able to enjoy the flowers, fruits, or veggies later!
  • Cook Together: Instead of breakfast in bed, assist mom in the kitchen. Pick out a recipe together, put on an apron, and make a meal or bake a dessert.
  • Do some arts and crafts: Arts and crafts are a great way to spend the day! Make mom a card with construction paper, glitter, and fun markers or spend the day doing fun coloring books. The possibilities are endless!

Mother’s Day is also a wonderful time to get out of the house and explore Idaho! Here is a list of must-see places around the state:

  • Redfish Lake: Did you know Redfish Lake is the largest lake in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area? Located near Stanley, Redfish Lake offers an array of outdoor activities ranging from a beach day at the lake to hiking, camping, and horseback riding.
  • Shoshone Falls: Shoshone Falls is one of the largest natural waterfalls in the United States at 212 feet tall and 900 feet wide. Located near Twin Falls, spring is the best time to visit as the snowpack begins to melt.
  • McCall: Between Payette Lake, ski mountains, and miles of trails, McCall truly has it all.
  • Coeur d’Alene: Explore Coeur d’Alene in northern Idaho! The whole family can enjoy a tree-to-tree aerial course, hang out at the lake, take a hike, try whitewater rafting, and more.
  • Boise Greenbelt: Looking for something to do in the Treasure Valley? Get outside and go for a walk or bike ride on the Boise Greenbelt. There are 25 miles to cover plus birding and fishing.
  • Hiking Trails: The Boise Foothills has more that 190 miles of trails to walk, hike, or ride with plenty of fauna and flora to see.

One last thing you should get your mother or mother-figure for Mother’s Day? Health Insurance. There’s nothing like the peace of mind that comes with knowing a loved one is covered. That’s where Your Health Idaho comes in. As Idaho’s health insurance marketplace, Your Health Idaho has plenty of plans to fit various lifestyles and needs.
