Fall is a fun time to bring your little ones into the kitchen with you. Warm delicious scents fill the air, there are tons of great treats to be made, and it is a wonderful bonding experience.
If they don’t have much experience yet with your kids in the kitchen, one of the easiest things to start with is beverages. It is a simple way to get their feet wet with measuring, stirring, and exploring new flavors.
So don’t be afraid to create some family fun in the kitchen with fall flavors.
(Psst… Check out the great deals at Target – listed below – to stock up on all you need for Fall cooking with the kids!)
Easy Autumn Apple Tea Recipe
My sweet girl loves to help in the kitchen! We decided to give this Autumn Apple Tea recipe a try to enjoy outdoors. When the temperatures dip we spend a lot of time outdoors enjoying the break in the heat (we are in sunny Florida). Oh, and you can grab all the ingredients you need on your next trip to Target.
By the way, we always start off every adventure in the kitchen with a few kitchen safety reminders about not touching burners or pots on the stove without close supervision.
- 3 cups apple juice
- 6 Lipton Cup Size Tea Bags
- 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup brandy (optional, and only for adults 21 years of age and over, obviously!)
- 1 apple, sliced (for garnish)
- 1 Tbsp. whole cloves (for garnish)
In 2-quart saucepan, heat juice just to a boil. Remove from heat and add Lipton® Cup Size Tea Bags. Cover and brew 5 minutes. Remove tea bags and squeeze.
Stir in remaining ingredients. My daughter loved stirring up the mixture and adding ingredients. Kids can safely stir even warm items on the stove if you stay right by their side, avoid anything that pops and splatters, and remind them frequently that the pot is warm and only touch the handle.
To garnish our tea we added an apple slice that Little Miss studded with cloves. So pretty and great for fine motor skill practice, too!
Your Kids will Love to Help Make this Apple Tea Recipe!
This Autumn Apple Tea Recipe is great for doing with children of all ages. They can measure out the juice and pour it in the pot. Mom heats it up, removes from heat, and they can do the rest easily with close supervision.
