Painting Pancakes

Instead of boring plain old syrup on your pancakes, why not paint them!

I was surprised by painting their pancakes the kids actually used less syrup than when they drizzled their pancakes or dipped bites in a syrup puddle. 

This activity actually makes pancakes a more healthy alternative! 

You can also use honey instead of syrup. 

What you’ll need:

    • Food Coloring
    • Syrup
    • Unused Paintbrushes
    • Pancakes!

We used an egg carton to “hold the paint” as it doesn’t tip easily, holds small portions of syrup and, most importantly, is disposable! I love art projects with easy clean-up!

Add 3 drops or so to roughly a tablespoon of syrup and have fun painting and eating your breakfast.
