Pancake Art

The Little Man *loves* pancakes. The Little Lady enjoys them too, though not as much as her brother does.

Sometimes, Little Man asks for some "pancake art", which I started doing for him some time back, inspired by Jim's Pancakes. His requests usually involve buses, numbers and letters.

He did not request for anything in particular this weekend, so I decided to make some pancake faces. It is very easy, and I had lots of fun.

First, mix up some pancake batter. You can use your favorite recipe, or any boxed mix.

Next, fill a condiment bottle with the batter. You know, this stuff:

Draw the eyes and mouth on a hot pan.

Cover with more batter. (Looks like a regular pancake here.)

But when you flip it over...Tada!

Have a blast!

Little Man always has great fun eating his pancake art.

How do you make meals fun and enticing for your little ones?
