A Mother's Day Guide for DADS!

Mother’s Day 2019 is THIS Sunday! Dads – are you looking for that perfect gift? This year, give the gift of taking away…the kids! We’ve compiled an activity list of unique things to do for Mom while you spend some quality time wearing out the kiddos. There is something for every mom, dad and kid out there. Mix and match these ideas for your own family!

For Mom: Aerial Yoga Class

Is everyone looking to get a little energy out? Our first idea includes an aerial yoga class at B Well Boerne for mom! She will love this challenging and rewarding spin on yoga, hanging ever so gracefully from the ceiling on supportive beams, and hammocks made of (strong) fabric. There are many different poses to try. No matter the skill level, anyone can take something away from this incredible experience!

For Dad and the Kids: Ninja City

We know the little ones have more energy than most, and NinjaCity is the perfect way to let them get it all out. NinjaCity is for all ages and skill levels and is an obstacle course gym inspired by the American Ninja Warrior television show. We know you and the kids will all have an absolute blast!

For Mom: Salt Cave and Massage

For a mom who is looking to skip the challenge and get straight to the relaxation, the Salt Cave at Puresol Spa at Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort is for you! The salt inside the cave relieves and clears your respiratory system for optimum health benefits. Plus, you’ll be treated with the utmost care by their attentive staff. Take a look at some of the other services the Puresol Spa offers here and make a day of it!

For Dad and the Kids: Cave Tour

Boerne is well-known for the natural beauty of their caves at both Cave Without A Name and Cascade Caverns. Get a little adventurous and spend time underground in the cool air (year-round at 66 degrees) learning about stalagmites, stalactites, bats and more wonders of these amazing structures! Tours take place every day at both locations, every hour, on the hour. So feel free to plan ahead!

For Mom: Painting/Craft Class

If you’re a mom that loves to get a little crafty, take advantage of one of Boerne’s MANY painting and craft classes! Board & Brush Creative Studio just opened up for business this year and allows you to create signs specifically tailored for your home! The Dienger Trading Co. is also a popular spot for learning the art of calligraphy and watercolor with Selah Creative Studios. Check out our Facebook calendar for dates and times on these awesome opportunities and more!

For Dad and the Kids: Maker’s Place

The Maker’s Place is a great place for kids to have creative freedom, too! With a blank canvas for painting and ceramic sculptures of all kinds, there is something for everyone. Hey, an extra gift for mom in the making is never a bad idea either! We know she will cherish this art forever. The Maker’s Place even has the ability to mail off your art when it’s completed. So if you’re from out of town, this is still a fabulous option, and you don’t have to miss out on making this special memory!

Like we suggested earlier, mix and match these ideas depending on what you think your family will enjoy most! We wish you a Happy Mother’s Day!
