Mother’s Day is a special day and should be filled with special treats. That doesn’t mean to say that they have to be expensive. We have been considering gifts for Mum this week and know many of you, especially with small children, like to give something that you can do together.
So how about this? Layer up your dry ingredients in a jar and add a tag. Mum will love it I’m sure and it’s really easy to make on the day even, a truly handmade present. Why not make one for Granny too. Think of the fun of making them together too. Do let us know what they thought of it.
