One of the best ways to celebrate Mother’s Day this year is simply spending time with your family. You can attend a family-friendly festival, go strawberry picking, enjoy a family-friendly performance or plan your own picnic.

We’ve also compiled five unique events that are celebrating mom in fun ways. All of these events take place this weekend.

1. Enjoy a Mother’s Day picnic.

May 12, 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. In addition to a picnic lunch, hop on a hayride, make crafts, play lawn games and pick a bouquet with Mom at The Community Farm at Chestnut Ridge in Efland.

2. Attend a Mad Hatters' Tea and Garden Party.

May 12, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Mothers and daughters enjoy a plated "afternoon tea," tour the museum, stroll along historic N. Main Street, admire classic cars and buy art at the Wake Forest Historical Museum in Wake Forest.

3. Make a Mother’s Day creative weaving.

May 12, 12:30 p.m.-2 p.m. The Studio School of Durham is hosting this parent and child class. Use a variety of yarn and thread to create multi-textural weavings. For ages 5 and older.

4. Attend the Spring Festival fundrasier for L’ecole.

May 12, noon-3 p.m. L’ecole French School of Raleigh is hosting a Spring Festival Fundraiser to raise funds for a new playground. There will be free and paid activities for children of all ages. There will be an inflatable slide, face painting, balloon animals, Mother’s Day crafts and food.

5. Grab your apron and enjoy a Mother’s Day make-and-take cake.

6. Celebrate Mother's Day at the North Carolina Museum of History.

May 13, 3 p.m. Enjoy a special Mother's Day concert, Music of the Carolinas: Eliza Meyer. Dubbed a “rising star” by WRAL, Eliza Meyer has big plans for putting a new twist on the next generation of bluegrass — with a style that’s been influenced by the traditional ballads of Madison County and the round-peak music of Surry County. The museum flower shop is also holding a Mother's Day Jewelry Sale now through Sunday.
