Mother’s Day is just around the corner and while this year may be a little different, there are still many ways we can make our mums feel special and show them how much we love and appreciate them.
At Think Academy, we believe that Mother’s Day presents an opportunity to celebrate all maternal figures in our lives. Whether it be step-mums, grandmothers, aunties, or other special female role models, this is the time to show them how much they mean to us.
Here are some simple and special ideas to celebrate at home, whether you’re a parent at home with children or helping children in centres make Mother’s Day special:
A Portrait of Mum:
Encourage your child to paint a portrait of mum. Whether it’s a copy of a photo or a scene of their choice, seeing how children creatively express their love for their mums is sure to be fun and adorable.
Ask your child a bunch of questions about their mum or special person and help them fill out something like this as a perfect keepsake.
From cooking classes to dance lessons, there’s a vast array of online experiences that make excellent gifts and can be used safely during social distancing times. Find something that suits here.
Repurpose an old pot or jar as a Mother’s Day gift. Give your child paint, some soil, and a succulent cutting to put together a gorgeous surprise that will hopefully continue to thrive and grow!
Breakfast in Bed:
Waking up to a thoughtful breakfast made by her favourite little people is always an impressive Mother’s Day treat. Extra points here if you let her have a sleep-in too!
Remember to make a call or send a letter to the special women in your lives who are far away or unable to be visited at this time. Combine a few of these ideas and Mother’s Day is sure to be a success! Don’t forget to add a handmade card to make the day even more special.
At Think Academy, we wish all the mums out there a Happy Mother’s Day!
