Mother’s Day DIY Day Spa Ideas

facial scrub

Mom’s special day should equal relaxation, rest and fun! It’s Mother’s Day, and you want to help the kids do something that goes beyond a painted macaroni necklace. Not that mom won’t appreciate a piece of kid-created jewelry, but she might include a spa day at home even more. What can the kids do to give mom an afternoon of beauty and pampering. You can help the kids to mix up a facial scrub or mask with a few everyday items that you probably already have in the kitchen.

Chocolate Sugar Scrub

Mix a tablespoon of coco powder (the stuff you make hot chocolate out of) with ½-cup of coconut oil and ½-cup of course sugar. Mom can gently apply it to her face with wet hands, then rinse it off.

Avocado Option

This one is super-easy. Cut an avocado in half, scoop out the insides and mix it with a tablespoon of honey. Mom can spread it on her face and wash it off. Use this facial wash immediately. It won’t keep if mom lets it sit for too long.

Oatmeal Facial

Mix two to three tablespoons of oats with warm (not hot) water. Let it sit until the oats are soggy, and then use it as a scrub. You can add in a teaspoon of brown sugar for scent or cream for even more moisture.
