- Break the graham crackers along the perforated lines to create rectangular ruler shapes
- Frost one side of each graham cracker
- Break pretzel sticks to desired lengths (we recommend 1/4- to 1/2-inch long.)
- Alternate placing pretzel sticks and sprinkles along the edge (4 sprinkles between each pretzel stick, as shown above, works well).
- Serve on your favorite snacking dishware along with a healthy beverage — and sit down together to chat about your day!
