Candy Pretzel Pumpkins

Day 16: I did not anticipate being home for the candy making process this evening but my plans fell through and, therefore, I got a chance to participate as photographer, Penny helper and blogger for today’s pumpkin activity.

We found this candy covered pretzel idea on Pinterest as that is where a lot of valuable information is stored these days for all things clever and crafty.  It was a great way to get the whole family together and get our hands dirty.  Chris and Penny started off the evening sorting out the green M&Ms from other colors and then went outside to play for a little while.

When it was finally time to get started, Chris melted the orange candy disks and I made a real effort to get out of the way.  As the oldest child of seven, I have a tendency to be a little bossy so since this was his show I stepped out of the way.  I returned to the scene when I found Chris’ hands were too dirty to assist Penny with her messy hands.  There is no way she could get messier and she had a great time. In the end we even let her lick her hands.

She was so excited and replied that it was a “good lick-y day” as she managed to a do a technique I like to call the “lick and squish”.
