Thankful Blessing Mix – A Thanksgiving Mix – Kid Friendly Things To Do .com
What a cute way of teaching kids about the First Thanksgiving! It’s funny…I just discovered last week that the folded pretzel was invented by a medieval Italian monk. He made them to represent children’s folded arms. Here they are again, using the same representation! Interesting!
Here’s the recipe to print off, and the guide in teaching kids about each of the ingredients correlation to Thanksgiving! Very cute!
