Give The Gift Mom Wants This Mother's Day
(NAPSA) - If you're a mom yourself or making plans to honor one, you know there's no Mother's Day gift Mom enjoys more than quality time with family. "As long as I'm with my family, I am happy," says Stephanie M. from Tennessee. Whether it's an afternoon picnic or family movie night, what you do isn't as important as doing it together so Mom gets extra time with her loved ones.
So forget chores and science projects and plan a memorable Mother's Day everyone will enjoy with these family-fun ideas:
Serve breakfast in bed. No matter how you celebrate, start the day off right with this deliciously simple recipe for cinnamon rolls that Dad and kids can make together while Mom sleeps in. Not only does it taste great, but it brings the family together for a special start to the day.
Make dinner a family affair. Create coupon books filled with treats for Mom, such as folding the laundry or family dinner night. Stouffer's Family-Size Lasagna is a quick and easy-to-prepare meal that kids of all ages can help with. Younger kids can dress up the dinner table with homemade place mats, while older ones can help make a salad. Mom will enjoy cooking together and the helping hands will leave more time to savor around the table.
Get crafty. Gather around to build homemade frames and decorate with Nestle Juicy Juice 48 oz. or 64 oz. plastic bottle caps. Cut photos out in 1.5-inch circles and insert them into caps, securing with two-sided tape. It's a great way to personalize frames and capture favorite family moments and milestones.
