C has always loved to work in the kitchen and recently he has realized he can do most cooking/baking projects with little help from me! I also think he has taken more of an interest since I stopped eating (most if the time) grains!! A child needs his pancakes :)
Last night after dinner he was flipping through his cookbook and discovered we had just enough time to make pretzels before he had to go to bed. I am always looking for non screen activities after dinner, so this seemed like the perfect thing.
He really did all the work himself! I just put them in and took them out of the oven. Oh, and I couldn't resist shaping some!!
