Roo's been needing constant activity this summer, so I've been keeping an eye out for fun things to do with her. I bought this Sassafras Kid's Pretzel Making Kit at a local craft store a while ago and whipped it out last week.
Both kids love getting pretzels at the zoo so I knew this would be a hit. Roo especially loved rolling the pretzel dough into rods and then choosing shapes to make. Dipping them into the baking soda/water mixture was also thrilling.
She was pretty skeptical about the packets of squishy chocolate dip and nacho cheese, so we didn't use them. Roo overcompensated a little by going overboard on the salt:
Hearts, snakes, triangles and more… yum!
Check out Sassafras for all sorts of cool activities for kids and grown-ups.
