Cinnamon Bread Sticks - Feature in Whip Up's Action Pack

I am very lucky to have not one, but two projects in’s Action Pack this issue. This issue has a theme of Sticks and Stones and is PACKED with all sorts of great activities, including how to make a sling shot, stone art, tic tac toe games, whittling skills, and more. I loved this project for a completely different reason than the pretzel log cabins. My kids love to bake, and I do too. But, it never ceases to amaze me how much I love bread dough. I love the smell of it, the look of it, the feel of it. I love the gummyness of the early stages and the floury dryness of the final stages. I like the pressure of the dough against my hands. Am I the only one that feels that way?

The other part about making these breadsticks that sent me over the moon was the cinnamon. Grinding the cinnamon you need from cinnamon sticks isn’t a necessary part of the recipe, but ohh is it good. Plus, I thought the more “sticks,” the better for this issue. If you haven’t done it for a while, try it. The smell of freshly ground cinnamon is beyond wonderful. The kids loved the whole grinding process too, along with the process of bread making.

The breadsticks are easy for the kiddos to help do AND super yummy.

We gobbled a bunch up the first night.

And then, dipped the leftovers in french toast batter the next morning. Ohhh my was that good french toast. Give me some mo’!!

The recipe for these cinnamon-stick breadsticks is in the magazine. It has over 30 pages of activities for kids, specially for kids ages 7 – 10. I love that.
