|My homemade bread dough, ready to shape into pretzels|
Just prior to popping the pretzels in the oven to bake, you use red or pink food coloring to tint the salt (coarse Kosher salt is best). If you're really adventurous you can even use your favorite recipe to make homemade bread dough from scratch using flour, water and yeast and then dye it pink like I did.
You can never take enough pictures and/or video of your kids having fun (or of their finished projects) so be sure to capture the memories for the future before the family devours these!

Remember, kids should never be in the kitchen without supervision and it is the parent's responsibility to ensure the safety of your children at all times.
I hope you'll give this edible holiday craft a try and leave a comment describing your experience. As a matter of fact, I hope you'll feel free to share your own holiday creative baking ideas suitable for kids below this post, too.
