Children's mulled wine is just the thing for cold days. Whether after a walk in the forest or a sleigh ride - children's mulled wine warms up all cold-numbed limbs, tastes delicious and is easy to take with you in a thermos flask.
Children's mulled wine made from grape juice and orange juice
But how is the children's mulled wine really delicious? There are really plenty of recipes. Of course, there isn't one recipe that everyone likes, and every child has their own preferences. But the mix of the following ingredients is very popular.
Almost everyone knows the recipe with apple juice, sugar and cinnamon sticks. A completely different mixture, which is in no way inferior to the classic, is the combination of grape and orange.
For eight children you need about one liter of grape juice, one liter of orange juice and half a liter of strong fruit tea as you like (blueberries are particularly delicious for child-friendly mulled wine, or a fruit mix). Use sugar sparingly. "Delicious children's mulled wine for cold days" read more
It is mid-March and politicians decide to make serious cuts in the lives of German citizens. I don't want to presume to judge whether these Corona measures were justified. The conditions were like that and we had to see that we could deal with it.
A little story about Corona
I am someone who tries to make the best of all possible situations. And so, of course, during this time I also thought about how best to deal with these rules.
I have three children, all of them grown up, all of them no longer at home, all of whom have both feet firmly on the ground. We are a family that likes to see each other, sit together, eat, play, whatever great families do.
Suddenly that was no longer possible. At first it didn't bother me too much because we didn't necessarily see each other once a week, even in "normal" times.
And finally there is also the phone and WhatsApp. But after three or four weeks, as a mother (once a mother, always a mother), I slowly got restless and missed my children.
Parents encounter hand-eye coordination again and again. Be it on educationally valuable games (here it often says: promotes hand-eye coordination) or in the field of occupational therapy in the context of an abnormality in the child.
A brief explanation: hand-eye coordination
But at least they know what exactly is behind it. The eye-hand coordination belongs to the field of visuomotor skills. This is the coordination of a visual (visible) perception and the body itself. The visuomotor function is to be understood as a task of the brain that takes place unconsciously.
Cooking with wildflowers sounds like adventure and tastes colorful on the tongue. Dandelions on your plate? Daisies in the Salad? Where do you get that? Best in the children's kitchen!
Do not start cooking with wildflowers too soon
Because wildflowers are not only tasty, they also look beautiful on the plate and, as is well known, the eye is with it. They are also healthy and just spice up any meal.
But which flowers are edible and how can I prevent my child from thinking that it could just put all the beautiful flowers of forest, field and meadow into my mouth? At the latest with the thimble this is life-threatening!
In order for the above problem when cooking with wildflowers not really to be a danger, your child should have a certain age before they start to cook in the kitchen with wildflowers. It should be known that some flowers are edible and some are highly toxic. "Cooking with wildflowers - don't start too early" read more
Many people are very scared of getting an injection. This fear is very widespread, especially among young children, so that a visit to the family doctor can be a very stressful day for the parents if the offspring struggles with hands and feet against receiving the injection.
The fear of an injection
For many children, syringes are a real nightmare, which is why in some cases it is anything but easy to calm the child down when he is sitting in the doctor's office and is about to have an injection. It is often extremely helpful if the doctor is good with children and knows exactly how to calm the child down.
Many doctors try to distract patients a little when they are supposed to have an injection, because doctors are of course aware that many people, and especially children, fear injections. "Children and the fear of injections" read more
