Coquitlam is paying tribute to all moms this week as we approach one of the most unusual Mother’s Day celebrations in history. To celebrate Mother’s Day in Coquitlam, City staff have created a CoquitlamSPIRIT package filled with creative ways we can all show appreciation for our moms – even if we can’t be with her in person.

CoquitlamSPIRIT Package Highlights
Get Crafty: For the first time in history, kids won’t be coming home from school with their lovingly prepared Mother’s Day presents. Visit CoquitlamSPIRIT’s Child Activities page for some fun and easy crafts kids – and dads – can do at home to give to mom on her special day.
Cook Up Something Special: How about cooking up a favourite meal for mom? Or making breakfast in bed? We have included some of our favourite and easy-to-make recipes on our website.
Surprise Grandma: Put a smile on grandma’s face, too. Visit the website to find out about our Grandma Day Door Surprise suggestion.
#SupportLocal Gift Ideas: Think flowers, baked goods, frozen treats, boutique gifts or takeout brunch. VisitCoquitlam.ca has some helpful lists of local restaurants and businesses that are open – and ready – to serve you. Can’t see mom in person? Check out your options for delivering a bouquet to her doorstep. Or choose a plant that will make a great addition to balcony or backyard planters.
Visit the website for these – and more – ideas. Also, we’d love to see your stories on social media about ways you’ve been showing your #CoquitlamSPIRIT.
