Our family has a first day of school tradtion that involves donuts but this year my daughter started Kindergarten and she is in the afternoon class. That means she doesn’t go to school until 1150am. With a lunch time start, getting up a little early and going to a donut shoppe didn’t make much sense so I asked her what special breakfast she would like me to make. Pancakes!
Pancakes are by far her favorite but they are such a dull food. I asked if she’d like me to put chocolate chips in them…she said “no, just plain”. Seriously? who doesn’t like chocolate chips in their pancakes? So to make them a little more fun for the first day of Kindergarten I decided to do “school shapes”. We did numbers 1-2-3 and letters A-B-C and then she decided she’d like to see some shapes so we made a circle, square, and triangle. To make the shapes I poured the batter into the pan (already hot and on medium heat) using a large spoon to draw them. Then traced back over them where needed.
She loved them and ate the whole plate… 1-2 & 3!
