Making mulling spices involves all of the senses so students can enjoy fragrance, texture, sound, color and of course taste. The tradition of simmering spices in hot cider for musical gatherings and holiday celebrations such as Thanksgiving is centuries old and began in Europe. This activity lets students mix the ingredients to make the spices, and then use those spices to make a mulled beverage later. It’s a perfect activity for a chilly autumn day, or for any time of year. Lessons include Math, English Language Arts, Social Skills, Social Studies, and Independent Living Skills.
