Homemade Cough Syrup - Great for Colds Too!

Okay I'll give ya this...the ingredients sound gross but it works.

1 Raw White Onion
*Raw Honey - Must be RAW! check as most store bought honey is pasteurized .

Take the onion and cut into parts. Now stab it a couple of times with a fork so the quarters have a little bit of holes. It doesn't have to be perfect so don't worry about not stabbing it the right amount of times. Place onion in a quart mason jar and fill with raw honey so that the onion is just covered. Screw lid on and leave on the back part of your stove for at least a day but probably a couple of days. You'll notice that the onion imparts it's juice into the honey. Using a strainer pour liquid into a pint mason jar and store in the fridge. To take you want to take a teaspoon 3 to 4 times a day when you're battling a cold or cough.


****Please remember not to give honey to children under 1*****

What To Do With Your Toddler/Preschooler

Ever been there? You need to talk on the phone or do some schoolwork but you don't want to plop your kid down in front of the TV? too. As a matter of fact it started happening too often and then I remembered reading somewhere about a book. After MUCH MUCH research I found where I had seen it (Ambleside Online) and here's the book:

102 "I-can-do-it-myself" activities for preschoolers

The only problem is it's a fortune so I suggest you get it from Interlibrary loan.

Here's a link to a great resource as well
