Mother's Day is a special day honoring mothers. It's celebrated in different ways and on different days throughout the world, but the United States celebrates this holiday on the second Sunday in May. In addition to gift-giving, this holiday begs time spent together, so celebrate with Mother's Day activities for kids that the whole family can enjoy.

The first Mother's Day was celebrated in Grafton, West Virginia, on May 10, 1908; however, President Woodrow Wilson didn't declare the first national Mother's Day until 1914.
