Mums can be so busy juggling everything that they sometimes forget to take a break. This is where you come in! It might take a bit more effort to book in a time in her busy schedule but she deserves to be spoilt. Maybe even make it an ‘excuse’ to hang out haha!
When thinking of things to do, let your inspiration run wild. If you are struggling on some great date ideas, we can give you a head start. See the five activities that are worth booking in a date with Mum – they are engaging and creative ways that you can make memories together along with your favourite Brother products.
We love dabbling in scrapbooking here at Brother, in case you couldn’t tell from the abundance of scrapbook templates on our Creative Centre… It is the perfect activity to capture all the memories and events happening in your family and life, and really gets your creativity flowing.
Creating a scrapbook of a recent event or special occasion such as a birthday or family trip is a great project idea to tackle with your mum. You can discuss where that scalloped edge frame will sit and if that stencil works with the page, which are all easily created with our CM900 ScanNCut.
Whether you’re baking your signature brownies or helping out with tonight’s dinner, cooking is a great bonding experience. However, there is no better way to make a mess in the kitchen with your mum than while wearing matching aprons. It can be easy to make with your Brother NS15 Sewing Machine and not too expensive.
You can even take it one step further and embroider your aprons with your names or something cute like ‘head chef and ‘trouble maker’. If this is too far out of your sewing comfort zone, grab your P-Touch labeller.
Sometimes mum doesn’t have time to sit down and enjoy her coffee or morning tea and has to grab it on the go. That’s why we have the perfect DIY tumbler that she can use 24/7.
Having something to pass down through generations is such a sentimental experience. Get the family heirloom started with a family quilt. You can share ideas on design, size and style and start creating with our Innov-is NV1800Q which is our specialised computerised sewing and quilting machine.
This is not a short activity but ensures a solid amount of quality bonding time to not only make memories but learn skills.
Family history tree
It can be hard to remember sometimes who’s side Aunty Cathy is from or who is that cousin that keeps turning up to family events. Creating a family history tree is not only lots of fun to do with your mum but also a great way to find out more about your family and its history.
This is also a beautiful project to add onto with new family additions, to pass down through generations and hang on wall. Let mum show off her sewing and embroidery skills with our embroidery and sewing machines such as the NS55 Sewing Machine or Innovis NV800E.
Lock in a time in your mum’s busy schedule to have a special date that we’re sure she’ll appreciate. Share with us your adventures with mum and tag us in your photos on Facebook and Instagram.
