You may take mom out for brunch on Mother’s Day, but she probably doesn’t want to cook dinner on her special day either. Here’s a very simple and yummy recipe dad and the kids can make together. Add a baked potato and a salad (you can make one at the grocery store salad bar) and your set. Click on the picture for the directions.

This is a simple activity for dads and kids to make together for mom. Dads, you can use any shape bottle and can usually get them at the dollar store or craft store for a very reasonable price. We’ve added where you can pick up the other items to make shopping easier. This also makes a great gift for grandmas and is easy to make in the classroom.

Materials
– mixing bowl and spoon (kitchen)
– bottle or jar (dollar store or craft store)
– 1 cup white sugar (kitchen or grocery store)
– 1/3 cup + 2 teaspoons good quality oil (I used olive oil, but you can use any nice, non-smelly oil) (kitchen, grocery store or drug store)
– 3-4 drops of yummy-scented essential oil per jar (I went with mandarin, peppermint, and lavender) (craft or health food store)
Directions
Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Place the scrub into the jar. You may need to use a funnel to get it into the jar depending upon how wide the mouth of the jar is.
