Kids In the Kitchen ... Pancake drawing

This week I decided we needed a little fun, some what different cooking experience in the kitchen! I really don't even know where I thought of this, I might have seen it here or there with all the blogs I take a peek at! But I will never remember :) I think that goes along with being a mom, having mommy brain and forgetfulness.
Anyhow this week was truly simple, yet fun and entertaining! We drew with pancake batter. I grabbed a mustard squiter I had from a previous get together and thats how it all started ....
A simple premade pancake mix ....
Stir in a little water .... When its nice and thick get your funnel out and pour into the mustard container! (the funnel is a must if you don't want alot of mess)
Make sure the pan is nice and hot, and greased (I stood very close to her in this process) Then start letting their creative juices flow, I let her draw or write whatever she wanted ....
And she drew her name and a prett little heart, I am guessing this is a good exercise to work on their garmmer skills!
I made MOM of course, the small heart, then I made a huge heart ....
which is what shes eating here, and she said the fork was not neccessary LOL!

  1. I did this for RockerTot a while ago after seeing it on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" (Food Network). I need to do it again and let RockerTot tell me what shapes/words to make.

    My linkup autofilled and placed a tot school age at the end of the site name. I just wanted to say that he's not months old anymore.

    I can't wait to see what everyone else did!
