A few rules must be implemented for a massage to work well:
Find a quiet and pleasantly tempered room or space
Use a comfortable pad, yoga mat, or blanket to lie down on
Go to the toilet before the massage, it is difficult to relax with a full bladder
Remove jewelry and tie long hair together
The massage should not hurt
Don’t massage on bones, especially the spine
Sensitive areas of the body, such as the back of the knee or the inside of the thigh, should not be massaged
How to Bake a Cake
Today we want to bake a cake together! – oh no, the baking tray is still very dirty. Then we must clean it well… first, let water run over the baking tray
Now rub the tray clean…
Oh, the baking tray is really dirty, we need more water…
There’s something sticking there – and here I can also see some dirt.
We must brush it again!!
…and again more water to rinse…
Of course, we now must dry the wet baking tray
Done, now we can start baking. We start with some flour – we pile it up and make a hole in the middle…
Then of course we need sugar…
What else needs to be in the cake? Yes, of course, eggs!
Now a pinch of salt… and raisins – do you like raisins?
Now the dough must be kneaded strongly…
We spread butter on the baking tray…
We roll the dough out evenly with the rolling pin…
Should we bake a cherry cake today? Or an apple pie?
Let’s do crumbles on the cake today too, it’s so delicious
So, what’s left to do? Oh yes, the cake must be baked.
How good it smells!! – We better take the cake out of the oven before it burns and cut it into pieces
Now we spread the cake on the plate with the cake scoop
…and what do we have to do now? Clean the baking tray…
This playful massage is well suited to introducing the topic of massages and relaxation to children. You can also adapt this massage to different occasions. During Christmas time you can bake cookies. If your child prefers something saltier, bake a pizza.
Let your imagination run wild.
You can also swap roles, for example having mom or dad be the cake and your child be the baker.
