In Indiana, we sometimes get snow in April. This means some of you will be sweating in shorts and t-shirts while we’re still bundled up in coats and gloves.
But I can’t wait any longer. My brain is begging me to start thinking warm spring thoughts even if my town won’t thaw for a few more weeks.
Luckily, some of my blogging friends were nice enough to include me in another kids’ activities series. This one is (surprise, surprise!) all about spring!
And butterflies always make me think of spring. At our house, we almost always make pumpkin pancakes on Saturday morning. You can see our pumpkin pancake recipe here.)
To switch things up, I thought my girls would enjoy eating a few butterfly pancakes.
Our three-year-old said, “These are so yummy, Mommy!”
1) Prepare your pancake recipe.
2) Pour your pancake batter into circle shapes on the griddle and cook as usual.
3) When finished, cut the circles in half
4) Place the rounded edges of two half circles together to form the wings.
5) Attach blueberries to make the abdomen using your favorite edible glue. We like peanut butter! Honey, syrup, or whipped cream could also work.
5) Add your clementine antennae.
My girls don’t use butter or syrup, so the end result was not only cute and tasty, but also fairly healthy.
