I seem to be way behind on posting about our craft days - we are having a lot of fun with them and are so glad our friends are coming to join us this summer. I think it may become a summer tradition for us.
So, this week we made pretzels. I first saw this on the Crafty Crow, but the original idea is from Pepper Paints. We made ours with only white flour and they turned out great - tasted just like a pretzel from your favorite mall pretzel shop, or better in my opinion. Just make sure to make your dough an hour ahead of time so that you don't have to call your friends and tell them it's OK if they're late!
Ned was more inclined to just squish the dough and then hand it to me. (Sorry this is out of focus, but it was the only shot I had that portrayed the true joy of squishing dough).
This was a great activity for young kids, with a delicious end result!
