DIY Pretzel Arrows


Valentine’s Day is more than just giving love to your sweetheart. It’s a great way to teach your kids to spread love – each and every day.

Here’s an adorable Valentine’s Day treat that you can make with your kids. This is great and tasty activity to help your children get in the spirit and think about someone other than themselves.

Materials needed:

  • Pretzel rods
  • Pretzel rod bags (I bought these at Party City)
  • Frosting
  • Tall cup
  • Parchment paper
  • Sprinkles
  • Tape
  • Heart labels OL196 in florescent pink
  • Rectangle Labels OL775 florescent pink
  • Scissors
  • Sharpie marker

Instructions:

step 1

Step 1: Place a couple of spoonfuls of frosting into a tall cup. Put it in the microwave for about 30 seconds or until the frosting has liquefied. Dip the pretzel rods into the frosting to cover the whole thing.

step 2.1

Step 2: Place the rods on a piece of parchment paper. Shake sprinkles on the pretzels. Place in freezer for about 20 minutes to harden the frosting.

step 3

Step 3: Open the pretzel bags. These were kind of hard to open so that the pretzels could slide through. I inserted a butter knife into the bag to help open it up to make room for the pretzel.

step 4

Step 4: The pretzel bag is large enough for two pretzel rods. I felt like two pretzel rods would look silly for an arrow. So I taped the excess bag to the back of the pretzel so the project would have a cleaner look.

step 5.1

Step 5:  Peel off one of the heart labels and stick it to the bottom of the pretzel.

step 6.1

Step 6: Peel off a second heart label and stick it on top of the first heart. The idea is to sandwich the pretzel in between the two hearts.

step 7.3

Step 7: Cut a rectangle label so that it looks like a feather.

step 8.2

Step 8: Place the feather on the top of the pretzel.

step 9.1

Step 9: Write a sweet message or let people know who the pretzel is from with a Sharpie on the heart tip of your arrow.
