Mother’s Day is just around the corner. It offers the perfect opportunity for you and the kids to show mum just how much she means to the family. Make the day all about her and keep the kids engaged by planning an exciting day filled with family-oriented activities that everyone can enjoy. With the help of Boxt hampers, you won’t have a problem coming up with an amazing day that mum and the kids will remember for a lifetime. Here’s a day of ideas to consider implementing into your own Mother’s Day plans.
Start with a Girls’ Spa Morning
With a tea rose pamper hamper in hand, all the girls in the family can start the day off with a home spa experience while the boys make breakfast for everyone. They can give each other massages while enjoying shortbread bites and chocolate truffle hearts, then indulge in facials using cucumber and aloe vera face masks. The girls can finish things off with hot baths and rich vanilla soap before heading to the dining room for a celebratory breakfast. The tea rose pamper hamper also includes delectable nuts and herbal tea left to enjoy when winding down at the end of the night. After spa time and breakfast, give mum some alone time so she can further relax with some crossword puzzles or a favourite hobby before participating in your planned afternoon activity.
Plan an Afternoon Cheese Tasting Party
For lunch, help the kids plan a cheese tasting party that brings everyone around the table for fun, games, and good food. Boxt’s cut to the cheese gift box comes with five high-quality cheese cutting knives, some smokey cheese nibbles, crackers, cabernet paste, a chocolate slab, and dipping bowls to get things started. Let the kids pick out three or four types of other cheeses from the store along with some fresh fruit, balsamic vinegar, and some cider to complete the spread. Then everyone can start the afternoon by trying the fromage selection and voting on which ones they like the best, as well as which they think mum enjoys most.
After lunch, clear the table for game time. Consider creating a mum-themed table quiz by coming up with a couple dozen questions that are all about mums, list them all on a piece of paper, and make copies so everyone in the family can have one. Then break the family up into two or three teams and battle each other to see who can answer the most questions correctly. Play 20-questions with mum as the focus. If she’s into crafts, plan a small project that each person can contribute to as mum takes the reigns as the project leader. You can also work as a family to create a fun memory book using photos of mum, the kids, and yourself from years’ past.
Move on to Movie Night
Finish Mother’s Day off with an intimate night of movie-watching before bed. Order Boxt’s movie night gift hamper to make things easy and memorable and rent a couple movies you know mum wants to see or loves watching time and again. Before popping a movie in, make sure mum has a comfortable place to sit in the centre of the couch so the kids can cuddle her and make her feel special. Spread out the caramel popcorn, rock candy, chocolate-covered fruit and nuts, and cocoa hearts that come with the movie gift hamper, and brew some fresh hot chocolate to share. With a night filled with so many goodies, who needs dinner? Start movie time off early so the kids won’t fall asleep during mum’s special time.
After a long day of fun and love with the entire family, mum and the kids are sure to appreciate all the effort you put into making things special. Enjoy!
