One of my favorite things about the weekend is getting to sleep in for a bit while the hubs takes the Goober and gets him breakfast. I must confess, the hubster’s idea of breakfast is a bit more elaborate than my dumping cheerios in a bowl and saying “here ya go” while I down coffee like it’s water. Weekends equal pancakes and my toddler loves it when he gets character or shaped pancakes. My husband has tried the Pinterest empty ketchup bottle trick, but wasn’t thrilled with the lack of control it gave him over his pancake creations (Seriously, I don’t know how I got so lucky having a husband who loves to cook!). He recently started experimenting with other methods and so far his favorite has been using the numerous medicine syringes we have accumulated (every bottle of infant acetaminophen or ibruprofen comes with one and I’ve saved them all). He makes these fun pancakes pretty frequently, but I only have pictures from Christmas morning and the Goober’s birthday for some reason.
Draw Your Own Pancakes
Step 1: Make your pancake mix and mix up the colors you are going to want to use. You can use food coloring to dye it or natural fruits and veggies like spinach and berries for a healthier option.
Step 2: Get your pan ready just like you are making regular pancakes, then fill up your syringe and start by making your outlines and then filling it in. Easy Peasy, especially if you can get the hubs to do it instead.
Step 3: Enjoy your pancakes and the look on your kiddo’s face when you let him eat Elmo’s face.by
