This may not be the Mother’s Day you quite had in mind, but we believe it can still be special and full of love for the whole family. In times like this, it is more important than ever to spread a little joy and celebrate the amazing women in our lives that we get to call Mum.
Mother’s Day is not cancelled, it is simply a little different this year. We have bought together some of our own personal plans and also some great ideas to help inspire you to still make the most of this Mother’s Day and celebrate the Mum’s in your life like they deserve to be spoilt.
Keep reading for inspiration how to enjoy Mother’s Day at home.
Your dinner reservations may have been cancelled but that doesn’t mean you can’t order a slap up meal in your own home. We love the idea of a fun indoor picnic with the whole family to help celebrate Mother’s Day. Simply lay out a blanket and some cushions on the floor, bring in all your favourite snacks and nibbles and dig in! The kids will love it and it can be fun for the whole family.
Make mother’s day cards
No Mother’s Day is complete without a card, and it doesn’t get better than a home made one from the heart. Get crafty with your little ones and encourage them to make their own Mother’s Day card. This will create a fun activity for an afternoon that your little one will love, and the end result will be a beautiful personal card for the mum/mum-to-be in your life.
Have a backyard sports day
We know the British weather can be a little unpredictable, but if we are lucky and mother nature is on our side, then a backyard sports day could be the best idea! Get those rusty tennis rackets out, or that cricket bat that is only gathering dust and let your competitive side out. If you don’t have sports equipment go old school by hosting an egg and spoon race or family tag team obstacle course around the garden, and we couldn’t forget the good old fashioned favourite; the three-legged race. The looser has to spoil mum for the rest of the day, we take our payment in chocolate!
Make mum extra happy by putting on her favourite romantic movie or classic rom-com for a family film fest. Make it special by making it fun for the kids as well by setting up a den or your own mini cinema at home. Snuggle down in your home made den as a family and get ready to enjoy the ultimate family film date.
Or get some serious brownie points, and make the home movie night into the world premier of all your homemade family videos. Spend the day going down memory lane with your family showing all those special moments and memories from over the years on the big screen for everyone to reminisce over. Wedding videos, baby videos, holiday videos and everything in between. We can guarantee every mum will love this idea and will help create even more special memories.
At home pamper day
Ok we admit, we may have added this one in the hope our families pick this for us, but we deserve to be spoilt… honestly! What better way to show the mum’s in your life that you love them and to say thank you for all their hard work than with an at home pamper day. Your children will love getting involved to make mum feel as special as possible. We’re talking bubble bath, cups of tea on tap, at home face masks with cucumbers for our tired eyes and possibly a little hand massage if you’re lucky. Go that little bit further and spoil her with breakfast in bed with the little ones.
We know times are a little tough at the moment, but now more than ever we think it is important to share the love and make memories as a family where possible and what better reason than Mother’s Day! We hope this has inspired you that there is still fun to be had and Mum can still get her Mother’s Day treats.
