Pickle Boats

I love how that sounds “pickle boats”.

We made them for snack, as well as orange boats,
but that doesn’t sound as funky.
Here’s the recipe -

Building the snack gave us an opportunity to talk about the different parts of the boat;
hull, mast and sail.

It was much easier to insert the pretzel into the orange than the dill pickle.
I used processed sliced cheese cut into little triangles and they stuck easily to the pretzel.

More children chose oranges over pickles but they all enjoyed the cheese and pretzels.

  1. Cali loved her cute little pickle boat today. Such a cute idea.

  2. I am doing a pickle story time at my public library soon, so this would be the perfect craft! Thanks for sharing.
