Soft pretzels are easy to make…at least this version. All you do is take refrigerated French bread dough (found by the biscuits and refrigerated cookie dough). Have your kids role out snakes and then shape them into letters. It’s a great way to work on letter recognition, sounds or spelling. You may need some flour if the dough gets to sticky. Once you’ve made all of your letters, put them on a greased cookie sheet. Then, brush the pretzel letters in a mixture of 1 egg white and 1 Tbsp water. Sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake the pretzels at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Once pretzels cool, it is time to eat. We were lucky to have grandma around today helping with this activity.
