February 23rd is National Pancake Day Celebration. Create some family fun and celebrate with one or two of these Pancake fun ideas
Learning Fun – make as many words from the word “pancake” as possible. Whoever comes up with the most gets to eat or make the first pancake. (Note: There are at least 17: pa, pan, pane, pack, pace, pea, peak, pen, can, cake, cane, cap, nap, nape, neck, ace, ape)
Name FUN – To spell out names our words with pancakes: pour 1/2 cup batter into plastic squeeze bottle with narrow opening to use for making letters. Squeeze batter from bottle or drizzle from spoon onto hot oiled griddle to form letters. Cook pancakes until edges are dry. Turn; cook other sides until golden brown.
Animal Fun – To make animal pancakes: Form simple animal designs on griddle. Pour batter for round pancake; with a spoon, add small amounts of batter for ears, feet, tail, etc. Some easy designs are: Rabbit–round body; smaller amounts for head, 2 long ears and a little round tail. Turtle–round body; small amounts for 4 feet, the head and tail. Cat–round body; smaller amounts for 2 ears and 4 feet; use raisins for eyes and mouth.
