Pounding the dough was a big hit. (Pun intended.)
A little more labor intensive than I thought, but so worth it.
In the past, we made easy pretzels with canned dough- Fun to make and tasted o.k. but this recipe tastes like we bought them at the store.

We made the cornucopia by wrapping strips of the processed dough around a greased cake funnel.

We tried sugar and salt variations for the coating.

A great companion children's book for this activity is:

"One Little, Two Little, Three Little Pilgrims"
Thanksgiving book for kids.

This is a fun twist on "Ten Little Indians".  
Kids love to sing "One Big Turkey".
