New idea for getting kids to take their meds

Let me say up front that this isn't something I've done, so I don't know if it will actually work. But since I have one kid who hates drinking medicine, this idea in the April 2009 issue of Parents magazine caught my eye:

It's a candy-rimmed dosing cup from, which retails for $6.99 for a box of 6 cups.

Of course, it immediately occurred to me that you could probably rim a dosing cup the same way you'd rim a margarita glass: Pour some water or simple syrup onto a small shallow plate. Pour some sugar onto another small plate. Turn the dosing cup over and dip the rim into the water or syrup, then into the sugar. If you anticipate needing more than one dose, you could prepare several cups at once. (And if you don't already keep the cups from old bottles, you should! It'll spare you from emergency dish washing.)
