Mother’s Day – Made By Kids
Kids love to get involved on Mother’s Day, so if there’s one tip we can give to you it’s Keep It Simple! They are going to want to get involved in all of the chores and cooking of making Mum’s day off a great one. We’ve put together a few ideas on how to keep the kids included without making the day more difficult than it needs to be!
Breakfast in Bed
A really traditional way to celebrate Mother’s Day with the kids’ help is breakfast in bed. You can vary your attempts from plain old toast to a full on fry up. But for those with independent kiddies who want to make something they can take all the credit for, why not try Twirly-Curlies? Buy some ready to bake croissant pastry at the supermarket, chop into 15cm rectangles, spread a little Nutella and twist them over! Simple as that they are ready to be popped in the oven, emerging as lovely chocolately croissant twists. Yum!
Once Mum is fed and watered, the little ones are bound to want to shower her with gifts and Mums love nothing more than a homemade present from her little angel(s). Now, this can be a messy affair…nightmares of paint stained walls and finding glitter in the dogs fur haunt us for weeks before Mother’s Day. Why not try letting the kids make Bead Hangers? Just take an old wire hanger, bend into the shape of a heart (or any shape you wish) and let the kids slide on beads which are widely available at craft shops. Once they’re done, use some ribbon as a tie-up and you’re done! No mess, and the little ones can be getting on with these whilst you start the Sunday dinner prep…
Mother’s Day Dinner
Most people opt for a traditional roast dinner on Mother’s Day and rightly so. Effort needs to be made while Mum has her feet up! Our advice is to prepare as much as possible the night before, such as par-boiling the potatoes and parsnips or stuffing/flavouring the meat. Not only will this save time on the day, but it’ll also mean that there will be fewer dishes on the day, which is always a bonus.
A Scrumptious Pudding
As is tradition after a roast (especially on Mother’s Day!) a delicious pudding is a must! After all that hard work, it’s unlikely that you’ll be up for preparing your dessert. So, again it is something we advise you prepare the day before. Or, even better, order in!
