Pretzel making can be a project for the family or youth group to do. The pretzels can be made into gifts for friends.

DIRECTIONS

Pretzel Making — Fun Project for Families

You might make a bag of pretzels for a friend during Lent. An idea for an attractive presentation is to use a plastic bag, tied with a purple ribbon, which would include a Pretzel Leaflet, Prayer Cards (about five) and a note which may read:

"Pretzels for God" Sharing Custom

Dear Friend:

Please take these Pretzels for God as a token of love. We happily share with you and your family this beautiful pretzel custom. It will bear much spiritual fruit, serving to remind each of your dear ones of the true purpose of Lent.

See the recipes section for a variety of pretzel recipes to use, and the Activity Pretzels for God for the prayer to attach.
