If you have a mom who loves puzzles or crosswords, Sudoku or word play, then she’ll find this especially appealing. In fact, you could even make a little game out of it. Tell mom she can’t have her present until she solves her Mother’s Day riddle.
From math equations to tricky turns of phrase, there are a lot of different ways to deliver Mother’s Day riddles. No calculators allowed, Mom! But there are also some punny riddles even the littlest members of your Mother’s Day party should be able to answer.

You might be surprised with what they come up with. Surrounded by her family, or sharing riddles over FaceTime or Zoom, she’ll feel loved and challenged in the best way possible. Then for the next holiday, you can challenge your mom to come up with her own set of trivia.
