Creative ways to virtually connect this Mother’s Day

Although many of us are unable to celebrate Mother’s Day in person this year, that doesn’t mean there aren’t other ways we can connect.

Here are a collection of fun and creative ways you can virtually connect with your mum this Mother’s Day (that are far more exciting than a standard video call).

Cook up a storm

Set up a virtual chat using Facetime, Skype, Zoom or Google Meet to cook one of your mum’s favourite recipes together. You can then sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labour together over a glass of wine – or two!

Get competitive

If you and your family enjoy a bit of healthy competition, grab your smartphones and play a game together online. There are plenty of online trivia games such as QuizUp, Heads Up! and Psych!. The New York Times also offer a crossword challenge which is sure to entertain everyone in the family.

Virtual book club

If being a bookworm runs in your family, why not pick a favourite (mum’s choice of course) and spend an hour on Mother’s day to read together and discuss the book in more detail.

Send her an eCard

With Australia Post experiencing an influx of mail, many deliveries have been delayed. To ensure your card arrives on time, send your mum an e-card. Hallmark and Paperless Post offer plenty of options for your mum this Mother’s day. If you are after something more interactive, send an e-card through JibJab to create a card she’ll never forget.

As you can see there are plenty of ways you can connect virtually with your mum this weekend.

To all the mum’s out there I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s day!
