PAINTING PANCAKES: MODERN ART YOU CAN EAT

Super easy and super fun!

This is a really easy edible art project…

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.

Of course, once you start this, pancake breakfasts will never be the same!
