All you need to purchase some ingrediants, make a few sandwiches and pack the car. Find a sunny spot in a park - it doesn't need to be too far away! Snack on hummus, potato salad and your mum's favourite sandwiches! After the picnic pack away any leftovers, wash any dishes sealed in containers and shake out the picnic rug. You mum will enjoy the fun day out and impressed at your preparation and organiztion!
2. Clean the house
Wash the dishes, vaccum, polish the furniture and make sure you can see all the way to the bottom of the laundrey basket. Your mum is a queen and deserves a day off of chores. Believe us, she'll appreciate the effort far after the house gets messy again.
3. Treat her to a movie – popcorn, choc tops, the works!
4. Declare it a social media free day ALL DAY
Mum herself can spend all day with her nose in Facebook if she pleases, but the rest of the family should pledge to give her their undivided facetime (and we’re not talking video chat!)
5. YOU’RE PLAYING HER SONG
Make a list of all the songs she sings along to in the car, all of the tunes that are on the repeat in the house and make her a Spotify playlist! She'll appreciate the effort and it's something that she can enjoy far after the flowers have died and the chocolate has been eaten

However… now you’ve got to navigate the world of boredom busting with kids at home. Here is our ultimate school holiday guide to help you survive (and thrive!) the Summer holidays.
