Want to make mom feel extra special this Mother's Day? 

Here are seven ways to make mom feel special in Northwest Arkansas this Mother's Day:  

1. Make a card

A special homemade card is something she'll cherish forever. Just ask any mom you know if you need proof!

2. Craft an 'I love you'

Special gifts don't have to be expensive, just given out of love. Try this Recycled Magazine Butterflies craft!

4.  Spend the day together

Enjoy Mother's Day in the Garden at the beautiful Botanical Garden of the Ozarks. Moms receive a free succulent while supplies last and there will be a coffee truck and a variety of vendors on hand. Plus there are tons of gorgeous spots in the Garden for mom's favorite gift- a photo opp with her kids!

On Saturday, head to Art Ventures NWA in Fayetteville for free Mother's Day craft making.

Get out and enjoy spring in Northwest Arkansas! Pack a picnic lunch and head to a local park or playground! 

Take a drive around Northwest Arkansas to see local murals! Use our Northwest Arkansas Mural Hunt Guide for ideas.

5. Treat mom to dinner

Make a family dinner at home — grilled pizza is a fun one for kids to help with. Don't forget dessert! Try this Salted Caramel Skillet Brownie.
