Do you remember my post on Bread in a Bag? It’s become one of the most popular ones on the blog, and I think I understand why. it’s a fun, relatively mess-free activity kids can do that results in something real that they can eat. Low stress on the parentals, high reward for the kid. At least, I think that’s why my little guy loves it. He really, really loves serving his own homemade bread with dinner. 

So now I’ve been working on developing some other recipes  kids can make in a bag. Pancakes in a bag is the first installment. I’m hoping to add a few more in the next few months. As you can see from his smile above, Alex loved this activity. 

Just a thought: with Mothers Day around the corner, this might be a great way for kids to make breakfast while mom sleeps. The pancakes are  pretty yummy, and any food you don’t make yourself is guaranteed to taste better. It’s like a rule or something.

Anyway, the pancake recipe is pretty basic, and the kids can put everything in a quart or larger Ziploc and mush it around. This pancake recipe does not use any eggs, so there’s no worries if your little decides to taste it along the way. Then, with parental supervision, they can clip off one corner of the bag and pipe pancakes onto a griddle or pan and cook them right up. It’s very easy, and the clean up is pretty minimal, especially for kid-made food.
