On Glittering Muffins, we like to discover the world but it can get expensive to actually go everywhere, so we came up with a few collaborative series to help us do so and hopefully you can enjoy them too
-Our first one was something most people don’t think about when looking at new places, the food. We decided to TRY and introduce new food to our then 2 year old and created a series called Around the World in 12 Dishes. We also wanted a series that hadn’t been done yet and at the time it hadn’t.
Around The World in 12 Dishes takes you on a journey around the world, (loosely) following in Phileas Fogg’s footsteps, exploring 12 different countries with our children, by cooking 12 dishes with them. One for each country visited. The world is such a wonderfully diverse and colorful place. Our children see maps, flags and books. They see postcards and maybe they see films about the world.. we really bring it to life through food! Taste and smell don’t often get explored, we think this is fun and interesting for you and your children. Not only is it an exciting and different way to learn about cultures, but cooking with children brings a host of benefits – from numeracy to science, discovery to closeness.
-Our second collaborative series came with spring when we started going out more with Nico and wanted to share those places with others in case they ever were in the area with their kiddos looking for things to do. At first we thought about zoos only but there are so many other things to do and visit, so we decided that if a kid can have fun there we’ll cover it! We called it Kids on the Go!
Look for new and exciting places to go and explore, close to home or out traveling, with practical advice instead of marketing phrases. Together with other amazing bloggers we introduce you to zoos, parks, museums and more, trying to cover all of the common questions and more, so you can make an informed decision, if this could be something for you and your children – from a parent’s (and sometimes even child’s) view. We talk about ticket prices, parking, food prices, cleanliness, accessibility, age-appropriateness and more.
-Our third and newest collaborative series is The World from A-Z. We thought it was sad that you only ever hear about what is considered touristic when trying to learn about a new place. We think that places are special due to locals, so we thought what better than to ask locals what they like to do at their place. It covers everything from food over festivals and activities to artists and history and more.
Nico is still young and doesn’t grasp much of it yet but he likes to cook and travel so we hope he’ll like them even more as he gets older.
