Whether your Mother’s Day means being treated to breakfast in bed, getting pampered all day long or just keeping your little one/s entertained, the most important part of this day is the reason you’re celebrating it in the first place — your amazing mini! From brunch dates to pampering sessions, check out these 7 fun ways to bond with your mini this Mother’s Day.
Make a photo collage
Ahead of Mother’s Day get a load of your favourite photos printed, pick up some cute collage books, fun stickers and ribbons and set up a fun craft station! From baby photos to your most recent holiday, making your own photo collages and decorated albums is the perfect way for the whole family to reflect on precious memories and spend bonding moments together. Plus, you’ll be left with something cute to look back on in future years.
The perfect excuse for a family gathering! Get your extended family involved, Grandmas, sisters, cousins and set up a big brunch to celebrate the matriarchs of the family. Ask everyone to bring a different dish and set up a big buffet for you all to enjoy. Why not treat yourself to a Champagne toast to all the Mum’s too? (With something soft and sparkly for the kids of course!) Afterwards, your mini’s can all go play together (supervised by the Dads…) and Mum’s can get some much-deserved rest.
At some point this Mother's Day you might just want a little alone time for some rest and relaxation. An easy to ensure you get what you deserve —asking for it in advance. For instance, a few days before Mother's Day, give your partner or kids a list of ‘services’ you desire, things like a lie in till 9am, a soothing hot bath or breakfast in bed! Chances are your minis will find pampering mummy a fun game too!
Then get mini to join the pampering…
Although time spent pampering in peace is always a treat it feels like a shame to leave mini out of the fun… Why not treat yourself to (or ask to be treated to) a Tiffy & Tallulah pamper hamper ahead of the special day. The perfect treat for both mummy & mini, create the perfect pampering experiences, from play pretend spa days to princess playtime you can both enjoy for hours. Whether it’s our Bath Time Dreams hamper to turn bath time into bonding time or our Princess Playtime hamper for a little beauty bonding that makes Mother’s Day memorable.
Why not have some fun in the kitchen? The kind that ends in a sweet treat of course…baking! Choose a recipe together then get your mini to help with the measuring, mixing and most importantly decorating! Although make sure to make a few that haven’t been touched by little hands juuust in case…
Let your mini call the shots
Tell your mini you’re going to spend the afternoon with them and have them decide what you'll do together. Whether it’s going to soft play, playing dress up or arts and crafts activities, follow their lead and praise them for whatever choice they make!
