How To Show Your Appreciation For Your Mum This Mother’s Day In Sydney


How do you make your mum (or step-mum, grandma, auntie) feel special on the day created to celebrate all the wonderful things they have done? You take them out somewhere nice, or do something fun with them that’s a little different from their usual routine. We’ve put together a selection of ideas to do with mum this Mother’s Day in Sydney.


  1. BYO Art Class At A Paint And Sip Studio

TBH they had us at paint a sip! Cork & Chroma have come up with the ingenious idea of an art class with a drink in hand – way to get the creative juices flowing. As they say; Drink. Paint. Just don’t drink the paint.

  1. Picnic By the Water (thankfully, we’re blessed with lots of it in Sydney)

  1. Tuscan Cooking Class

Everyone loves the taste of Italy but not everyone can replicate it. Well, with this cooking class, you can try your hardest to learn. For 2 hours you’ll be led by a qualified and experienced chef, who’ll help you create simple food with knock-out flavours.

  1. Chocolate Making Class

If yours (or your mum’s) tooth is more sweet than savoury, try a class at The Sydney Chocolate School. Choose what sort of chocolate you want to make, then you’ll be able to take it home with you! Or, you could just eat it there and then. It’s ok, we won’t tell anyone 😉
