The second Sunday in May in the Gregorian Calendar is Mother's Day. To commemorate this special festival, the Shanghai YMCA (Young Men’s Christian Association) held some special Mother's Day-themed activities. They used the medium of flower art to help the elderly feel the pride of being mothers.

The Shanghai YMCA and the Shanghai Huaai Community Service Center invited the Fusan and Jianliu Day Nurseries along with professional art teachers to help the elderly to experience the joy of illustrating artwork with flowers. The experience helped the elderly to feel the pride of being a mother.

The Dapuqiao Community Cultural Activity Center of Shanghai YMCA set up a special online handiwork class. While the activity followed the rules of social distancing, it also promoted the traditional virtue of honoring parents in the Chinese nation. Through following the online class they were able to make "Love Earrings" and a "Thanksgiving Vase".

Another activity was initiated online by the Xinjiayuan Community Cultural Center of the Shanghai YMCA mainly for children. It was an exchange of paintings with the theme of "I want to talk to my mother". This activity not only helped the children to express their gratitude to their mothers but also helped the children to add personal and creative touches as they expressed love for their parents.
