Set up iPad for Mom (ideally without computer)

Hi all

I just purchased an iPad (4th Gen/Wifi/16GB) and Adonit keyboard case as a Xmas gift for mom in her 60's who lives in Germany (near Frankfurt). She currently has an aging windows laptop but really just uses it for email, internet browsing (facebook), and skype. Ideally I would like to set it up for her in advance from here in the US, install mentioned apps, and would like for her not to bother with iTunes/syncing with her laptop. I suppose I need to create an apple id for her, but not sure what to do beyond that. I don't mind managing her apple id for her remotely (e.g. email address, credit card info, etc). We skype a lot with her and look forward to Facetime with her too. Any suggestions?
