If you haven’t made reservations yet, you might want to think again about heading out to a restaurant on Mother’s Day. So why risk it? Bring brunch and fun activities to your mom, at home! There are tons of ways to let mom relax, enjoy herself and feel special -- and it’s all DIY! Check out these ideas for this Sunday that will let you be creative, have fun and remind mom how much she means to you.
Bagel Bar: Who doesn’t love a good bagel? Get a variety of bagels for you and your family with an assortment of cream cheese flavors. This way, everyone can pick their favorite or have a little bit of each!
Pancake Skewers: Tiny pancakes, about the size of a golf ball, look extra yummy on a skewer with fruit. Pull out your favorite fluffy pancake recipe, make them fun-sized, and even add some hazelnut or peanut butter spread to the tops of them. Place them onto wooden skewers or leave out all of the ingredients for each family member to put together their own!
At-Home Spa: Pick up a luxurious bubble bath, a soft loofah, a candle and some bath salts. Turn your own bathroom into a relaxing spa for mom, with flowers and even a glass of wine. Give mom a few hours to unwind in a hot bath, rejuvenate with a face mask and let all of her responsibilities leave her mind.
Get Outdoors: Bring your brunch, lunch, or dinner outside and have a picnic! Bringing a kickball or a frisbee with you to get the family up and moving. Nature trails, bike riding or playing a board game on the patio are all simple things, but big memory makers.
Snap Photos: Grab a few disposable (yes, disposable!) cameras from the store and snap pictures all throughout the day. Make sure you get them developed ASAP so you can hold onto the memories and look back at the fun-filled day you had. Think about getting one for each family member so that you can see the day for everyone’s unique perspective.
