March 15, 2015 is Mothering Sunday, so we thought we’d put together five ways that you can have fun with your little one on this special day and let mum have a bit of a rest.
Make Handprint Cards
There’s no need to go out and buy a readymade card, save your pennies and make a card that comes from the heart. All you need is some card or paper, coloured paint and a crayon. Cover your child’s hand or foot in the non-toxic craft paint and let them have some fun making the print. Pick the clearest one to use as the card and let your child ‘sign’ the inside. This card will be treasured forever and it’s great fun too.
Breakfast in Bed
Ask your child to help you make mum a delicious breakfast in bed, but not too early, most mums appreciate a lie in! When you sense mum is waking up from her sleep head into the kitchen and put together her perfect breakfast. Make the foods she loves, be it a bowl of cereal and a cup of coffee or some pancakes covered in maple syrup. Place everything on a tray with the homemade card and present it to mum with lots of smiles.
The small simple things like doing the housework for the day really do make a difference. While mum is enjoying her breakfast head back downstairs and have a good tidy up. Ask your child to help too, there are plenty of jobs they can do such as:
- Putting away toys
- Loading the washing machine or tumble dryer
Let your wife enjoy a peaceful bath or shower for once. Take your child out to the local park and give mum an hour’s peace to pamper herself without any interruptions. Visit the local park, feed the ducks or visit a local play centre and get rid of some of that endless energy.
Spend Time Together
Play games, watch a movie, put on a play with your child’s favourite toys, just spend some time together in your family unit without any outside distractions like phones or computers.
