DIY Mother’s Day Weekend

DIY Mother’s Day Weekend

All you dads and kids out there, there’s still time to plan the perfect Mother’s Day weekend. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

First, how about making a gift? Here’s how you can turn a rope into a decorative basket.


Make a terrarium or a planter with succulents — Greenstreet Gardens has a great selection!

Create a custom wood-burned cutting/serving board

Frame your favorite kid art or turn it into postcards


Let her pick something out with a gift certificate to Amalgamated Clothing & Dry Goods, Kiskadee or fibre space.

Or skip the gifts, and take her on the 2014 Del Ray House and Garden Tour (a day earlier).


A bike ride to the Four Mile Run Farmers and Artisans Market for live outdoor music


A river walk at Dyke Marsh or nature walk at Huntley Meadows


And you can’t go wrong with fresh flowers, homemade quiche and delicious blueberry pancakes…
