With Mother's Day approaching it's the perfect time to start thinking of Mum and activities you can do together. Awesome Aussie Things to do with Mum is the perfect book to help with this. Whatever your Mum's interests, this book can show you some awesome things to do together.
From indoor activities, to gardening, games, backyard projects and beach fun, there are so many ideas for you to explore.
Does your Mum like trees? Learn the art of Bonsai pruning together. Choose a suitable Australian species - eucalyptus, Grevillea, or Banksia - and get snipping. Does she want to put her feet up at meal time? Maybe you can make her some Home Cooked Tucker with a Twist? Teach her some new dance moves so she doesn't embarrass you at the next party, or build the most awesome sandcastle ever together next time you are at the beach.
There are recipes, excellent illustrations teaching skills such as knitting, and instructions for games from Mum's childhood such as Cat's Cradle, Knucklebones (Jacks) and Elastics.

Filled with quirky illustrations, fun facts, great tips, awesome ideas and step-by-step instructions this book will help you to discover just how amazing your Mum really is.
