Pancake Cupcakes

Any of you Dads out there looking for a fun way to help your kids make breakfast in bed for mom on Mothers Day? Pancake cupcakes are super easy and super fun for the kids! Not to mention you can freeze the leftovers foe the next time you need a quick breakfast!

All you do is mix up some regular old pancake batter. We use the powder kind that you just add water to. Then pour the batter into the cupcake tin. If you have older kids they could do this part independently. We decided to make fun ones this time so we added chocolate chips and sprinkles.

As you can see Babs REALLY likes sprinkles! Lol. Dried blueberries work great too if your looking for a healthier option!

Mini Pumpkins

Okay so I know I have been slacking on the kids cooks ideas, but let’s face it, sometimes life just gets in the wayWP_20151017_11_33_31_Pro. 😉  Lately I have just been letting Babs help me cook our breakfast. We did make super cute mini pumpkins for a Halloween party we went to last weekend. I saw a picture of them online and I wish the website would have been listed so I could give them credit for the idea. The first thing we did was peel the oranges. This really tests those fine motor skills. I start one for Babs like the picture to the right. However, if you have smaller child that would like to help you could also do most of the peeling and let them just pull the peels off like the picture below.

I cut each celery stick into 4 pieces. So how much celery you will need will depend on how many pumpkins you plan on making. It’s as easy as that!

We also made banana ghost to go with them. I used the celery and grapes to keep them standing upright. They were a huge hit at the party!
