How to Make a Rolling Pin

My sons and I decided to make gingerbread cookies this afternoon.

Thus we found ourselves at the store in search of the perfect rolling pin.

We ended up with a 1¼ inch dowel that was 48 inches long, then had it cut into 3 pieces. We took our dowel pieces home, sanded them and ended up with 3 perfect rolling pins. Our total cost: $6.38 (for dowel and sandpaper).

Each rolling pin took 10 minutes to make (hand sanding) and added up to just $2.13. On top of that, a fun activity.

    That’s a great idea! I have been thinking about buying a new rolling pin but cannot find the size I want. I think dowel may be the way to go. Thanks = )
