Good ideas for a car holiday with children

If you're going on a driving holiday with the kids, there are bound to be a lot of questions. How will you entertain the kids in the car? And how do you have a nice ride while you are driving down the German autobahn or wherever you are going? Read on to get ready for this year's car holiday with kids.

A self-drive holiday offers a certain freedom. In the car you have your own little base from which to relax and look out of the windows. These days, going on holiday by car is becoming increasingly popular, both because it is more environmentally friendly than flying, but also because it is a super easy way to travel, even with children.

But as with any other type of holiday, there are always challenges when there are children involved. We all know what it's like to have unhappy children in the back seat.

Get outside in the cold

You're probably one of many people who prefer to stay indoors when the cold is over Denmark. But a fire pit is one way to make the outdoors a little cosier, for young and old alike.

Of course, this is most optimal if you live near some nature where a fire pit is set up or if you have your own garden. A fireplace doesn't have to be expensive and the kids will love making bread etc. out in the open.

Pyre with fire.

To have your own fireplace, you can make it yourself

First of all, check if it is allowed to make a fire pit in your own garden in the municipality where you live. In addition, there may be a number of other rules that you need to abide by - these can usually be found on your local authority's website.

Always make sure your home fire pit is a safe distance from anything flammableso you don't end up setting fire to the shed or something. Also bear in mind that the fireplace will be nice to use in the summer and therefore must not be allowed to get set in dry grass etc. One last thing to consider before making a permanent fire pit is the direction of the wind and whether it will disturb neighbours too much.

You can find many different guides online to build your very own fire pit.

You can also choose to buy a bonfire

An easy choice is to buy a fire pit. With a fire pit you can move your fire around. You can then move the fire pit from the front garden to the back garden or just to another spot in the garden. You can also choose to pack the fire pit away for a while if you don't want it to be out in the open. This is very practical if you don't have the biggest garden and want to have space for other things.

You can find both expensive models in fire pans and slightly cheaper.

What can I use a fire pit for?

Now we take it all year round, starting in the colder months.

Winter is upon us, the snow may have fallen and the kids want to be outside all the time. But being outside can also be a quiet moment instead of having to trot and run around a playground. You start in the kitchen, where you make dough for snobrød with the kids. While the dough is rising, the fire is lit. Now you can get out jams or similar things to put in the bread. You can also make hot cocoa or tea to take out in a thermos.

RECIPE FOR SNOB BREAD approx. 10 pcs.
time 60 minutes

25g yeast
3 dl lukewarm water
1 tsp coarse salt
500g wheat flour

Stir half a packet of crumbled yeast into the water. Add the salt and gradually the flour. Knead the dough well. Let the dough rise for 30 minutes. Brush your skewers with a little butter or oil to make the bread easier to remove.
Divide the dough into 10 balls and roll out the dough into long sausages. Wrap the dough around the puffs and leave to rise for 10-20 minutes. Then bake the snob rolls over the coals until golden all over and cooked through (about 20 minutes).

Find a good spot around the fire pit and make sure the children have a good distance. Put the dough on the skewers you have, let the children put the dough on themselves and let them heat it over the fire.

You'll all find the cosiness and warmth when sitting around the fire pit. It's a relaxing way to be outside and the fire has a calming and healing effect on the otherwise dark time.

Summer brings long evenings in the garden. Of course, the fire pit can be used for snob bread and cosiness all year round. But it can also be extended to roast sausages or marshmallows. You can also buy accessories that allow you to cook a whole meal over a fire instead of on the gas barbecue.

The fire pit can also be used in the evening, when darkness falls and the cold creeps in. Then it's time to get out the blankets and light up the fire. Then you can spend many more hours outside.
