Introduction: Mothers Day

About: i am a lot like a gnome. i am short, happy, decently athletic, adventurous, innovative, smart, some may consider me funny and i am really artistic.

this instructable will show you how to make your mother feel really special on mother's day!
we have two sections to this instructable, one from the "out-of-the-house child" and one from the "in-the-house child"

Step 1: The Card (in-home or Out-of-home Children)

we will start off by making an inexpensive but meaningful gift.

everyone gets cards for special occasions, but how many of those cards are hand-made?
moms love to get gifts and relaxation but it will melt their heart when you take the time to make a card for them yourself instead of just going and buying one.

Step 2: Supplies

paper (something stiffer)
pen or pencil

Step 3: The Making

first measure the envelope and cut the paper down to size to fit in it when you fold it in half.
now you can decorate the inside and outside as you want, write something she will keep forever.
now fold it up and put it in the envelope and label it Mom (obviously) make it as simple or fancy as you think appropriate!

and the first step is completed!

Step 4: The Breakfast in Bed (child-at-home)

this part is about making her a classic.

i will show you how to make french toast but you can do anything you like!

Step 5: Ingredients and Instructions

Plain white bread is traditional, but you can also try using a braided bread (challah), croissants, whole-wheat and rye bread for French toast, slice thick.

The following ingredients are needed to make this "instructa-recipe":

2/3 cup of whole milk

4 large eggs

2 Tablespoons of sugar

1 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla

1/4 teaspoon of salt

Using a shallow bowl whisk them together (or blend together with a fork).

The egg mixture should look a little bit like this before you start dipping the bread (picture 5)

dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture just before you add the bread to the fry pan, or if you don't want to get your hands dirty, you can ladle it on. (pic. 6)

both sides should be nicely covered, the more sauce the fluffier it will be

Melt 1/2 Tablespoons of butter in a pan over medium heat. Add one or two slices of marinaded bread to the pan, don't let them touch or they may stick together.

pan fry the bread until it is golden brown and then flip it Let the other side cook until golden brown as well (pic. 7)

apply powdered sugar and/or maple syrup.

serve with fruit salad and a glass of orange juice or coffee

Step 6: The Chores

clean up everything
make everything and just let your mom relax!

Step 7: For the Out-of-home Child

take your mom out! to a movie, a shopping spree or a special restaurant! anything you can think of! just make sure she is enjoying it and it will turn out great!

Step 8: Thanks

be creative don't just follow the instructable word for word you know your mother best after all! thanks for reading and i hope it will help and your mother has a great mother's day!

special thanks to
my Grandma/ Kathy Maister

    While the rest of this is original, I'd strongly suggest that you acknowledge the source for the FT recipe (previous comment removed as not needed) L Don't you love the ambiguity of "(removed by author or community request)"? Why not just "(removed)...

    my grandma made this recipe. its from my moms computer (the mac) and she e-mailed it to me (the PC) and that is why i had the typo because it converted bad.

    All the pictures and the textCopyright Kathy Maister © 2006-2008 are exactly the same as those on (unless your grandmother is Kathy Maister?)


    i goth the photos from a website i found on google but that recipe is original! i don't know where the copyright is

    This web site? The text is exactly the same including the punctuation marks - admit you copied the lot eh?
    I'm suggesting that you post that as a link to a recipe for French Toast, rather than have it appear as something you did?


    Lemonie on the defensive! High five!

    where are the copyrights? i cant find them

    okay I'm going to resolve this right now, i went to google to get pictures for this instructable, i used my grandmother's recipe BUT my grandma (for all i know) could have gotten this recipe from that cook. i will acknowledge that cook but I was under the impression that this recipe was my grandmother's

    this looks legit to me, I'm studying to be a lawyer.

    hey these are some pretty good ideas. but what would you suggest for a gift?

    I don't think that should be up to me. after all she is YOUR mom and you know what she likes. :)
