Mother’s day is a special day, but sometimes finding the perfect gift to show love and appreciation for her can be challenging. Sometimes, the greatest gift of all isn’t even truly a gift. Rather, it is the time and attention you give her. Try these six mother-centric activities and events this Mother’s Day in Sheridan, WY.
For the Gastronomic Mom
A superlative meal is a classic choice, but you can’t go wrong with Sheridan’s finest restaurants this Mother’s Day. Treat your mom to a 10 ounce lobster tail, cooked to perfection, or slow roasted prime rib at Wyoming’s Rib and Chop House. Specials at Wyoming Cattle & Creek, Frackelton’s, and Sheridan’s other popular dinner spots are sure to make your mom’s taste buds dance. If Sunday brunch is better suited for you and your mom, check out the special brunch menus at Bistro307, Smith Alley Brew Co., Shabby Shack and more!
For the Culinarian Mom
Most moms hope for a home cooked meal to be served to them on Mother’s Day, but when you surprise her with a cooking class at Cottonwood Kitchen or Verdello, she won’t be able to wait to get into the kitchen. Cottonwood Kitchen’s May 10th class, “Me-N-Mom Cinnamon Rolls” will be a great opportunity to get in the kitchen with your mom and bake sweet rolls with the option of cream cheese frosting or caramel. Verdello’s May 11th class “Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream” is a unique, hands on class that will make for an evening your mom will never forget!

Wyoming Adventure Ninja offers guided adventures as well as equipment rentals in case you and your mom are feeling confident enough to explore on your own.
For the Creative Mom
Whether your mom is confident with a paintbrush in hand or not, the Paint Post staff will make her feel like the Picasso of our time.
