Pretzel Coaster Build-Off

    Posted by  ·  June 10, 2009

    If you live in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut,  Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, District of Columbia, Virginia or North Carolina and are over the age of 8 you have a few more days to enter the Pretzel Coaster Build-Off .

    All you need to do is build a roller coaster made of pretzels before June 15th. The winner  will receive a trip to Williamsburg VA and the Busch Gardens theme park, thanks to Snyder’s of Hanover. Find the rules HERE.


    My boys are busy building their supper pretzel roller coaster.


    This has been a great activity to keep us from turning on the TV and best of all encourage teamwork!


    I wish I could show you more pictures, but I have been told it is TOP SECRET until June 15th (then I will share a picture).  Croqzine shares her fabulous creation if you would like some inspiration!


    Snyder’s has a few more fun contests here.

    I hope you will join in the fun!

      That's our favorite brand of pretzels, too bad we don't live in the proper area to enter! But maybe I'll suggest it to my boys as a rainy day activity this summer.

      Wow! It looks like they're doing an awesome job so far, and they're having fun, as well. Keep up the good work, guys!

      One of my twins is autistic, and loves creating things like this. He can make the most elaborate creations with just about any object out there. I swear he's going to be an architect when he grows up.

      Good luck in the competition!

      WOW! That is cool. We live in GA; but we did earn a free student and free teacher ticket to Six Flags over GA for the summer by reading a certain # of hours, which was also cool.

      Look forward to seeing the finished coaster here on the 15th.
