Hey mommies! It’s that time of the year again — when you have to keep your kids happy, interested and un-bored for the long summer days at home. While we can’t possibly keep them at the beach for two whole months, we could surely find fun summer activities for kids at home.
And what could be better a summer activity than food activity? Forget the safety hazard — these suggestions are all safe — here are your 3 no-bake dessert ideas to make with your kids:
1. Ice Cream Cake
On the level of kid’s interest, ice cream is an absolute check. And so is cake. Put them together and voila: pure kid awesomeness. Two ways to make the ice cream cake: you can make thin layers of sponge cakes, with your favorite ice cream flavors in between; or you can use the ever reliable Graham’s crackers. For a more pie-esque base, use crushed grahams with melted butter, mix together until crumbles form and put in your casserole plates (or ramekins for smaller servings).
When deciding on the custody of a minor, the courts take into account the particular financial, social, and moral circumstances of each parent. In case the court determines that neither parent is fit to take care of the child, custody may be awarded to a surviving grandparent, eldest brother or sister, the child’s actual custodian, or any other person deemed suitable by the court.
The general rule: A child under seven years of age shall not be separated from his mother unless the court finds compelling reasons to order otherwise, such as neglect, abandonment, unemployment and immorality, habitual drunkenness, drug addiction, maltreatment of the child, insanity, and affliction with a communicable illness.
Kids these days are growing up faster than ever. Even before reaching their teen years, they already know so much about so many things, and speak and act well beyond their age.
It’s only right then that certain things we used to consider “for adults only” have given birth to their own kiddie version as well. One such example is the standard bank account. Whether it’s for your child’s Christmas aguinaldo or just a little something you want to put away for their future, there are a number of kiddie bank accounts you can choose from.
Pets are good home companions and can even be a child’s best friends. But did you know that Bantay and Muning can actually make kids sick?
An animal’s infection can spread to humans through direct contact with bodily discharges such as feces and urine. Pets might also carry germs that ate harmless to them but can cause illness if transmitted to their owners. Here is a list of infections that your favorite pet could carry.
✔ WORM INFECTION
Kids can get a tapeworm infection from dogs and cats through accidental ingestion of a flea that carries tapeworms will latch themselves to their host’s intestines, and although an infestation is not serious and is easily treated, it can cause discomfort
Signs and symptoms:
- Abdominal pain
- Anal itching
Your doctor will prescribe anti-parasitic medicines. It also helps to have your dog or cat de-wormed and treated for flea control as well.
