Use the time while the shortcakes are cooling to talk about why we celebrate this day.
The pretzel is a symbol of prayer. The twist in the pretzel is meant to look like hands in prayer. And pretzels are made with simple ingredients – no sugar, butter, eggs, milk, etc. Includes a prayer you can say together before you enjoy your pretzels. #Lent #recipe #prayer
This video from Delish shows how to make pirate ship snacks from oranges and jello. This would be a fun Vacation Bible School or camp snack to make.
