Celebrating Pretzel Day!

by Jennifer Geary

Reading Time: < 1 minute 

Sometimes we get so busy with school and activities that we need to stop and do something fun.  One of my favorite things to do with my kids is celebrate crazy holidays!  Holiday Insights has hundreds of these days listed by month or you can find printable calendars from places like Homeschool Share.

Last Friday was National Pretzel Day, so we thought that seemed like a good reason to celebrate!  We made pretzels from scratch using this recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction.  After wrestling with his dough a while my son said he was going to scratch “pretzel maker” off his list of job possibilities, but they turned out surprisingly well—I don’t think he’ll take “pretzel taster” off the list!  We also read Walter the Baker, by Eric Carle.  We’ve read this book many times over the years but we still enjoy it!

In case you want to celebrate National Pretzel Day next year, here are a few other ideas!

Or don’t wait and go ahead and celebrate now!

Happy Holidays—all of them!
