Moms all over the world do so much for their kids every single day – and all for the sheer joy of watching their little ones bloom into wonderful adults. So, when the once-a-year celebration of motherhood, the actual Mother’s Day comes around – moms really do deserve the very best!
This year, we set ourselves the task of finding out what moms really want. The answer didn’t surprise us – a relaxing day spent with their families doing things everyone in the family could enjoy!
The best gifts really are the gifts of time. So we put together some of our favorite activities moms and kids can do together on Mother’s Day, and every other day too because really, every day is Mother’s Day.
How about a lovely breakfast in bed to start off your Mother’s Day?
Here’s a book that teaches your kids the ABCs of cooking. With the help of this multimedia cooking program your little ones will be cracking eggs and sautéing away in the kitchen in no time.
Skills that will last them a lifetime, and a Mother’s Day morning treat you will never forget.
What better way to thank mom on Mother’s Day than by taking over some of her daily chores!
Let your kids give you these pretty, colorful coupons for all kinds of different things:

Sometimes it feels almost impossible to fall asleep. So, when a little girl insists that she simply cannot sleep, her mother tells her how all of the animals in the world go to sleep.
But each animal sleeps differently, as the little girl finds out: leopards sleep in trees; storks sleep standing on only one leg; fish sleep with their eyes open; bats hang upside down while they sleep…
Mama, I Can’t Sleep is a delightful goodnight book for a night-time bonding activity for Moms and their little ones everywhere!
From cloud to puddle, and puddle to stream, the Little Raindrop is making its way on the remarkable journey that is Earth’s water cycle.
The book’s beautiful art makes for a soothing night-time read that’s both educational and heart-warming.
