Mother's Day Activities Your Mom Will Actually Love

Apart from her birthday, Mother's Day is our mom's most special day. Moms know best, and they deserve the best. So what can you give to the woman who's sacrificed so much for you? Gifts are great, but do they beat quality time together? Create a memory together – it's one of the best gifts you can give her.

Are you thinking of how to show your appreciation this Mother's Day? Read on for some fun activities that you can experience together!

  1. Get Cooking

Most of us bond at the dinner table, and not so often in the kitchen. Bring mom along and learn something new together – doesn't matter if you're experienced in the kitchen or not! We love this Yummy Hawker Dishes workshop, where you and your mom can choose to learn how to make Laksa or Nasi Lemak from scratch!

Cooking is one of the healthiest and happiest things a family could do together. Get hands-on and work together as a team with mom, then recreate the yummy local recipes back at home! Check out the next open class.

  1. Get Stitching

Learn about the history of Boro and art of Sashiko stitching with your mom! Literally meaning "tatters", cotton used to be scarce in Japan and commoners of the Edo period would lovingly repair their garments with fabric scraps instead of throwing them away. Overtime, they would become more and more densely patched, and Boro came to be associated with the clothing worn by these commoners.

Sashiko stitch is a technique developed by the women and housewives to repair these Boro garments. In this engaging workshop, you and your mom will learn how to stitch together fabric scraps to create your very own coasters! Apart from spending quality time together and stitching your own creations, you'll also learn the art of 'mottanai', which means to waste nothing, and how you can upcycle fabric scraps you have in your homes!

At the end of this 2-hour workshop, you and your mom will bring home two coasters each that's sure to brighten up your living spaces! Make it extra special by exchanging your handmade creations with each other 💝

  1. Get Letterpressing

Do you have fond memories with your mom, getting hands-on with handicrafts? Take both of your creative skills up a notch at this intimate letterpressing workshop. Here you will learn about the history behind letterpressing, be introduced to a printing press and the basic anatomy of a type. You and mom will also get the chance to personalize and customize types to form your own unique designs and layouts. Print out something meaningful, a loving quote for each other, either on a mini poster or tote bag!
