While it’s nice to get breakfast in bed and pampered on Mother’s Day; it’s also a wonderful chance to spend some quality time together. And what better way to build that mother-child bond than with some shared fun and giggles?
Here are some great options for having a memorable Mother’s Day:
Quirky Birds Felting Kit Mice, $34.95
These felt mice from Quirky Birds are fun to make using the art of needle felting. And the results are just adorable! This activity is best to do with older children (from 9 years) as it does require the use of some sharp objects and a certain level of skill!
Micro Scooters White for BIG Kids, $279
Nothing says quality Mum-time like a family scoot. The kids all have scooters, so why shouldn’t the Queen Bee? One of the great things about this stylish and sturdy Micro Scooter is the footplate, which is lower than other large wheeled scooters. This minimises lean when scooting and is kinder on your back (we are not as young as we used to be!).
Smart Games’ Mummy Mystery Strategy Game, $29.95
While some mothers are a mystery, some like to solve them! While this is designed to be a single-player game, little ones can lend a hand to witness Mum’s sharp mind in action!
Seedling’s Good Things for Busy People, $34.95
There’s no one busier than Mum. This lovely activity set from Seeding includes a yoyo, playing cards, wooden slide whistle, dominoes, A4 drawing book and a set of colour pencils. Play a few games with Mum, then sit quietly and draw while she enjoys a cuppa (then blow the whistle to fire her up again!).
Discovery Kids’ FM Walkie Talkies, $69.95
Split the family up into teams and take these lightweight long-range walkie talkies outside for some games, laughs and general exploration.
Fun Factory’s Giant Log Toss, $59.95
Maybe not the first thing Mum would think of for Mother’s Day, but Fun Factory’s Giant Log Toss is a great way to get the family together and get active. Kids from aged four can play and it even has a hidden educational side.
Grimm’s Wooden Flower Stacker, $59.95
Get Mum some flowers… that you can both enjoy! This Alderwood stacker from Grimm’s makes for incredibly creative open-ended play, but it’s also a unique décor item for the bookcase.
Petitcollin’s Marie-Francoise Bastille Auburn Doll, $169
You’d have to be particularly well-behaved for Mum to let you play with her beautiful French-crafted doll. Designed to last a lifetime, Petitcollin has been making dolls for collectors and children for 100 years. With a gorgeous outfit, soft vinyl skin, ‘sleeping’ eyes, and rooted silky hair that can be brushed and styled, this stunning and supremely stylish lifelike doll from Petitcollin is set to become a family heirloom that’s enjoyed by all.
