Autumn Apple Tea

This is a partnered post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Getting my children into the kitchen with me hasn’t always been a top priority. In fact, it has only been the last couple of years that I’ve brought them in with me and started teaching them the way around the kitchen. It always seemed easier to do it myself, but I’ve learned it’s so rewarding watching my children learn in the kitchen. I recently gave them a few recipes to choose from, and they chose to make this Autumn Apple Tea, which was really weird, because usually, when given a choice, they’ll choose a recipe that makes the biggest mess.

We're welcoming in fall with this delicous, warm Autumn Apple Tea. It's the perfect cold weather drink.

Not only did they make this Autumn Apple Tea entirely by themselves, they were able to clean up what little mess they made. And to make it even better, I love that they thought beyond the recipe and decided to add in cinnamon sticks to the glass as a garnish.

Kids really can have fun in the kitchen. I’m noticing that the more I allow them into the kitchen to help me, the more they actually want to help. And if you know my bunch, they’d rather be outside playing or tapping away on their tablets. So seeing that they want to help is pretty awesome.

It really is an excitement like no other to watch my children as they experiment and learn. Through the mistakes and missteps, it’s the perfect opportunity to gently guide them while still allowing them to learn at their pace.

Since we homeschool two of the three children, there are so many daily activities that teach beyond their textbooks. Like grocery shopping for example. When we went to Target for the ingredients for Autumn Apple Tea, I allowed them to choose which ingredients to buy. While we were at Target, I pointed out items that were on sale or that offered an incentive to buy, like the Buy 3, Get 1 Free on select Unilever food and ice cream brands (Hellmann’s 30oz real, Knorr Chicken Rice Sides, Breyers Natural Vanilla, Lipton Recipe Secrets, Lipton Tea 100ct, Country Crock Original 15oz, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Original 15oz). It allowed me to have a conversation with them about money, budgeting, and smart grocery shopping.

They even picked out those cute little glasses from Dollar Spot at Target — aren’t they cute?
