1. Cooking Classes
Traditional recipes have always been something that is passed down from one generation to the next. How about learning to cook a new cuisine from Chef Samia with the mother? Cooking classes are such a good way to bond with each other and you might just take home another recipe to hand over to the next kin! Psst… mothers attend free!

2. Make Mementos
If you’ve already attended a cooking class for Mother’s Day, why not take things up a notch by going for a jewellery-making class? This necklace and ring making class makes a great mother-daughter bonding session. The minimum age for this class is 10 years old so make it a trio and bring along the granddaughter!
