Bread Critters

Let your kids form critters and creatures out of bread dough. Then bake, and enjoy! Use your own recipe to make dough in the bread machine; or use the quick and easy one below.

-1 package dry yeast (2 teaspoons)
-1 ½ cups warm water
-4 cups flour (all purpose, bread, whole wheat or any combination there of)
-1 ½ teaspoons sugar
-3/4 teaspoons salt

"Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Mix the other ingredients in a separate bowl. Add the yeast. Knead until smooth.

Divide up among your kids (this dough easily makes enough to keep four kids happy) and let them create. Or roll out and let them use cookie cutters. Place the finished shapes on cookie sheets (it is a good idea to have one sheet for thinner smaller pieces and one for the bigger thicker pieces, since they will cook at slightly different rates). Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown and hollow sounding when you tap them.

Serve with butter and jam. And enjoy the fun of trying to identify the shapes as well as getting to eat off heads, arms, and other tasty bits!"
