Mother's Day At Home Is More Fun Than You Think!
Mother's Day is fast approaching, which means it is time for the family to get together and celebrate. Try and make the day a cherishable memory for both you and your family. Make this Mother's Day an occasion that does not require you to get out of the house, but rather have the most fun inside your homely walls. Instead of making it just your day, make it something your family can enjoy with you and takes equal part in. Celebrating Mother's Day is not a task, and we can prove it to you by suggesting a couple of fun activities that will make every mother’s day.
1. Family portrait
Hire a professional photographer to do a shoot for your family. Get your husband and children to deck up (you should too), and pose for photographs that will make sure this day is never erased from your mind. Once you get the pictures, you can get together and decorate a wall with them. You can include other precious pictures and moments captured. Use paints and decors that will brighten the wall. Make sure you use newspaper to avoid major disasters.
Throughout the year, you slog to delight your family with amazing dishes. On this day, make cooking or baking an event with the family. 'Too many cooks spoil the broth’, but in this case, it will definitely make it fun! You will relish the food that has a tinge of everyone's effort, even you child’s. It is also the best way to teach your children that cooking is not just for mothers.
Instead of spending an exorbitant price on a spa treatment for the family, try improvising the same at home. Your spouse and child can take care of massaging your foot and head. Your husband could give your hair a nice brush while massaging the roots. A spa treatment at home guarantees an enjoyable day. The hustle and bustle of things getting done around you will most definitely entertain you.
A family picnic at home is a new technique you must try. Make some light snack emphasizing on help from the other members of the family. Sandwiches will do the trick. Get a bottle of wine for you and your husband, and lemonade or any fruit juice for your child. This picnic does not necessarily need to be in a park. Make use of your backyard or balcony. Convert these areas to a picnic spot and surround the area with potted plants to enhance the effect. Spread a mat among the greenery or potted plants and enjoy your day with the family.
Instead of the usual extended family gathering that increases the load on you, make this one a potluck dinner. Each one gets a special dish, which adds up to a joyful spread on the table. Let your kids mingle with each other, while the grownups bond over wine or anything else that suits them. Potlucks are the best way to relish a great meal without putting much effort into preparing the spread, as each one puts in an equal effort.
