Edible Numbers Craft

There’s nothing better than a homemade pretzel combined with a relaxing afternoon spent with your children! The Number Treat You Can Eat activity allows you to create the deliciousness of a soft pretzel in your own kitchen with a simple recipe geared towards children. Once the dough is made, shape this pliable dough into numbers for additional learning fun!

What you'll need:

  • Large mixing bowl
  • Small mixing bowl
  • Wooden spoon
  • Whisk
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Coarse salt
  • 2 Cups flour
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons honey
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons salt
  • 1 packet dry, active yeast
  • 1 egg
  • Coarse salt for sprinkling
How to make your edible numbers:
  • Cut out three small rectangles from one of the small pieces of cardstock. Cut out two small squares from the other piece of small cardstock. Using the black marker, draw an “=” on one of the small squares of cardstock. (see photos).
  • Turn the large piece of cardstock so that the width is longer than the length. On the top, use a marker to write “I Know That…”. Glue one of the small rectangles in the very center of the cardstock. Glue the small square with the equals sign to the right and the other square to the left. Glue the remaining to rectangles on the other sides of the small squares. Allow the glue to dry. (see photos)
  • Once the glue is dry, place the cardstock in the picture frame. Decorate the rim of the picture frame with buttons, ribbon, stickers, and pom-poms. Allow the glue to dry. (see photos)
  • Get ready to have some fun while learning your math facts!
