It’s that time of year again! Time to plant our gardens, time to enjoy brunch and time to celebrate moms! It’s Mother’s Day 2015.

This year I went in search of free Mother’s Day activities and found a handful of ideas.  I have also included some of my favorite activities that include a fee.

Friends School Plant Sale
Minnesota State Fairgrounds, Grandstand
FREE for family
I have found this new love of mine to garden with flowers.  Right now, I’m an impatiens kind of girl, but someday, this will be super amazing!

Lindor LINDT Truffle Sampling
Mall of America, Rotunda
Saturday, May 9, 2015
FREE for family
Mmmmm, chocolate.  Enjoy a free Lindt Truffle in the Mall of America Rotunda.  And click on the link above to see how you can score a free BAG of chocolate.

Family Fun Twin Cities

enjoying trains together as a family

National Train Day
Union Depot
Saturday, May 9, 2015  11:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
FREE for family (at Union Depot, other places will have a fee)
I love this non-traditional idea to hang out with with your family.  I have just as much fun with trains as my kids.  And Choo Choo Bob and Friends will be there.  Meet Engineer Emily, Engineer Paul, and Choo Choo Bob and all their friends!

Mother’s Day Bonsai Show
Como Zoo and Conservatory
Sunday, May 10, 2015
FREE for family
Bonsai trees always make me think of the Karate Kid–one of my favorite movies as a kid.  While you won’t be scaling down any cliffs, you can still appreciate the intricate little trees.

Festival Cinco De Mayo Dia de las Madres
on Lake Street
Sunday, May 10, 2015–12:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m.
FREE for family
This is probably the biggest party of the Twin Cities combining Cinco de Mayo and Mother’s Day.  From noon until 7:00 p.m. enjoy dancing through the streets with your family.

Family Day: Artscapes
Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Sunday, May 10, 2015–11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
FREE for family
One of my favorite activities offered in the Twin Cities.  It may have something to do with the fact that the MIA is probably my favorite museum (which is so funny because I don’t get art at all!), but then you add fun activities on top of it like art-making and music and storytelling, you really can’t go wrong.

Moms Get in Free

Minnesota Zoo Farm BabiesMinnesota Zoo
Saturday and Sunday, May 9-10, 2015

We enjoyed the zoo on Mother’s Day a couple of years ago.  It was so much fun.  We packed a lunch and had a picnic back at our cars halfway through the day.  While it was busy, it was totally bearable.  I highly recommend this activity.  You will have so much fun.

Life is beautiful.
