But! I also am not going to do it for her. I'm sorry but no. The whole culture of parents doing amazing, crafty things for their kids is just not one I want to participate in. It sortof feels like I would be doing my kid's homework for her. However I am all about doing amazing, crafty things with my kid. So I wanted to come up with something that she could do / help with that would also not be crappy compared with what the rest of the group was doing.
Also it needed to be cheap. Because seriously, -yo.
I decided on chocolate covered pretzels. Cheap, easy, adorable, and possible for a 3 year old to master pretty quickly:
She helped me both dip the pretzels and cover them with sprinkles.
