Unplug your Kids.....Thin

Ok I have to admit when I first saw the theme for this week I was not really sure what to do. I mentioned the theme to DH and Sam and they both thought of spaghetti. Great idea. We needed pasta for supper one night so they ended up making pasta from scratch. Since pasta is thin, it was a yummy and fun project.
Here they are gathering up all of the supplies with their dad.
Each boy has their own rolling pin, so they went about making sure to roll the dough out nice and THIN.


After rolling it out nice and THIN, it was cut in to THIN strips.
Here is the final product. Some really yummy pasta. Make sure to check out all of the other projects over here. Check back in for next weeks project.

I thought this theme was challenging as well, but you had a great idea!

Is this something you do often?

That looks like a great project! Lots of fun! My daughter would probably love it. She loves all things to do with dough.

What a great way to complete the challenge. The only food I thought of for this theme was Thin Mint Girlscout cookies.
