Mother's Day is just around the corner, so it's time to start organising your plans for 10 May. With dine-in restaurants and social spaces closed in response to COVID-19, Mother's Day planning will require a little more thinking outside of the box this year. We've pulled together this list of Mother's Day activities for every mum to enjoy, from paint and sip sessions to virtual creative workshops and high teas at home.

How to celebrate Mother's Day in self-isolation

Get creative in the kitchen

Cooking up a storm with your family is a great way to bond and pick up some culinary skills. Whether mum wants to sit back and relax while the cooking takes place, or she wants to get in on the action, these delivered meal kits offer a convenient and fun cooking experience for the whole family. Bon appétit.

Pique your interests with a virtual class or workshop

Craft kits, online classes and workshops are all the rage right now, which means there is a huge variety to choose from including painting, pottery and candle making. There are workshops and classes mum can do solo, but if you want to turn this into a Mother's Day family celebration, there are plenty of workshops and classes the whole family can get involved in.

If you order a craft box or book a workshop that requires materials to be delivered to you, make sure you book in advance so it arrives in time for Mother's Day.

Experience alcohol making and tasting with a virtual tour

If you can't celebrate Mother's Day with a luxurious tour through a vineyard or cellar, let the tour come to you. Everything will be delivered straight to your door, so all you need to do is set up your alcohol and laptop in the comfort of your own home to enjoy the virtual experience.

Enjoy some "me time" with a pamper session or bury your head in a new book

What better way to spend Mother's Day than dedicating a few hours towards reading or having a pamper session? Mother's Day is often a busy occasion, so take time this year to reward yourself with some self-care.
