There aren't many days of the year dedicated to the special lady in your household. Her birthday is the day we celebrate that she was born, but Mother's Day is the day we celebrate what she means to your family.
Mums are pretty darn awesome all year round but we don't always remember to show her how much we appreciate her awesomeness. Mother's Day is the day for that. Mums like small shiny presents in little boxes, but they also love home made gifts that feel like they were made with love… mums are good like that.
Something else mum loves is a meal that she didn't have to prepare.
Not all kids are super handy in the kitchen, but no matter the level of kid culinary expertise in your home this is easy for anyone to whip up for mum while she takes it easy on Sunday morning.
If you fancy doubling the mix it will last a couple of days in the fridge and kids love this too!
