Jam making labels
151 7014
Go fruit picking with your kids, then make delicious jam and use these labels to make your jam jars really special

dadcando print your own homemade jam labels

Who doesn’t like jam? Homemade jam makes a really nice gift when you go and visit someone, it makes a great filling for a lovely Victoria Sponge cake, or the most fabulous filling for pastry tartlets. Making jam is easy and it is a great way to show off what a consummate homemaker you are. But here's the best bit... when the weather is fine, fruit picking is a really fun activity to do with your children. It's not expensive (as days out go), it's healthy and outdoors and everyone loves the challenge of finding and picking fruit, whether it's discovering a wild blackberry bush and racing to see who can fill up their tub first, looking for crab apple trees, or going to a proper fruit farm and paying a small fee to go into the fields and pick cultivated fruit. Of course the fruit is great in a pie and really good for you too, but why not experiment by making some jam. If you know people who have a damson tree or a crab apple tree, it is likely that they will be more than glad to have you come and pick some of the fruit. These types of trees produce so much that it is usually hard for the owner to clear up all the fruit that the tree eventually drops every year.
. . . If you've never made Jam before, don't panic, making jam is easy. You'll find loads of recipes for jam making on the web and in any good cook book. The basic plan is to boil up the fruit until it is soft then sieve it to make jelly (i.e. no pips, skin or bits), or leave it as it is to make jam. dadcando print your own homemade jam label sheetThen you add about an equal quantity of sugar and boil up the mix until it has reduced enough to set. As you boil the jam (or jelly) the water is driven off as steam and the temperature of the mixture slowly rises above 100°C. when the temperature is between 105°C and 107°C the jam will set when cooled. If you don't have a jam thermometer then you can test whether the mixture is hot enough by coating the back of a spoon and seeing if it sets when it cools. However a jam thermometer isn't expensive and is well worth getting. In my experience to make sure that the jam sets it is worth getting jam making or preserving sugar. This has an added setting agent called pectin (which is naturally found in fruit and fruit skins), or you can buy pectin in liquid form at the supermarket.
. . . IMPORTANT, children should never be allowed to make jam on their own. It gets hot and very sticky and will cause nasty burns if you accidentally get it on your skin.
. . . Collect up old jam jars and other sauce jars for a few weeks, ask your family to do the same. while you are boiling up the jam, wash the jars and lids and dry with a clean tea towel, then place them in an oven at about 140°C (275°F or gas Mark 1) for the time it takes to boil up the jam. When the jam is ready to set, take the jars and lids out of the oven, (they will be hot) and using a glass Pyrex jug carefully scoop out some hot jam from the saucepan and pour it straight into the jam jars. Fill to within about 1cm (½inch) of the top of the jars and immediately place the lids on top and screw tightly on while the jam is still hot and steaming. Remember the jars are very hot and the jam will stay hot for quite a long time. In all cases follow the recipe of cooking instructions you are using.
. . . When the jars have cooled down, you are ready to apply the labels. We have provided some nice simple labels, that will really finish off your jam making project. If you have sieved the the fruit after the initial boiling to soften, then you will be making jelly and you should use the labels that say jelly, if you did not sieve, then you are making jam. If you are making damson jam or jelly, you must always take great care to remove all the stones. If you are using crab apples, then you will only be making jelly, because you have to sieve out all the skin and pips.
. . . Download the pdf of the label that you would like to use. Each one is shown (about real size), the sheets are available in A4 and US Letter size and the labels are arranged 15 up on each sheet. Print out the sheet on an ink jet or laser printer onto either a big sheet of sticky label media or regular paper. If you are not using label media, then stick strips of double sided sticky tape in vertical rows on the reverse of the sheet in line with the joins of the labels and cut out using a craft knife or sharp scissors. Neatly write the month and the year in the box provided on the label in a colourful pen and stick the labels on the jars when they have cooled down. If you want to add the finishing touch, you can put a disc of checked material round the lid. Cut a fabric disc that is twice the diameter of the lid and simply secure over the top of the metal lid with a rubber band. Then all that remains is for you to show off your jam making skills the next time you are invited round to someone's house, or the next time you have friends round for afternoon tea!

Playing & doing stuff
MyPageMenu
Playing games is a very important part of being a child. Through game playing children learn about strategy, the joy of winning, how to cope with losing, negotiation techniques and how to notice and understand a whole range of social cues, all of which will significantly improve the way they get along with people as they grow up. Playing games also develops the imagination. When kids play a game together they build a whole story round their game, each person has a character, a purpose and motives, all playing out their parts in the rich landscape of their imaginations.

research has shown that degree and quality of playtime a child has with its father is a vital factor in determining the growing child’s sense of self-worth and confidence


Almost anything you do with your kids can and should be partly game (think of Mary Poppins finding fun in every chore), but it is important to set time aside for your kids when you are just playing with them for the sake of playing, rather than instructing them or caring for them. When you play together you enter their world and understand so much more about them and how they think, and you give them your undivided attention, some of the highest quality time your child can get. Scientific research studies have repeatedly shown that the degree and quality of playtime a child has with its father is a vital factor in determining the growing child’s sense of self-worth and confidence.

Having your children's friends round for tea


You don’t need to wait for a special occasion party to organise some games or activities. Having friends over for tea or the afternoon at the weekend is an important part of your children’s social life. They won’t need much encouragement to invite their friends over to your house. They’ll be proud to show off their other home and proud to show off their dad and the fun things that you do together. At times like these it is good to have a few games or Doing Activities ready to go, instead of letting them play on the games console all afternoon. You could plan to do one of the dadcando.com Making projects, (there are some that only need a piece of paper) or you could try out one of the party games in this section as an activity. You’ll find some great games in the Children’s Parties page like the Egyptian Mummy game or the Treasure Hunt, either of which are perfect for when your kid has his or her friends over for tea.

Or maybe it's just time to put your feet up and relax together


When you’re all done and you all just want to put your feet up and cuddle up on the sofa, then watching a great film with your kids or reading a lovely story to them is a wonderful way to spend time together. We hope you'll find find our weekly review of films and books useful in finding a good film or book to curl up with.
