Special craft-making sessions, ceramic painting, “wine and canvas” events and pajama parties are among the activities that will be offered at Jellystone Park locations over Mother’s Day weekend.
“Mother’s Day is always a big weekend for us because of our focus on fun family activities that help families strengthen their bonds with one another,” said Trent Hershenson, vice president of marketing for Leisure Systems, Inc., which franchises more than 75 Jellystone Park locations across the U.S. and Canada.
Activities range from classes that give kids a chance to make a special craft for their moms to scavenger hunts, and special activities just for moms, who also receive a free gift when they spend Mother’s Day weekend at a Jellystone Park location.
