Have A Pancake Party!

Are your kids tired of clowns, piñatas, and pin the tail on the donkey? If you are fresh out of party ideas, don’t worry, there is always breakfast. Huh? Yes, breakfast. You can throw a pancake party! Having a pancake party is something different that your child’s friends probably haven’t had. It is fun and unique and very easy! Keep reading to find out how easy it is to simple a pancake bash.

First, decide what your pancake theme will be. Obviously it will be pancakes, but are you going to make pancake shapes, colored pancakes, pancake people, etc.? Try to be as creative as you would like. It could be a chocolate pancake party and you will have the kids cook chocolate pancakes and use chocolate chips and other chocolate candies to decorate them. You might decide to make huge pan-pancakes and have them use cookie cutters to cut out shapes. Or you can make basic pancakes but have lots of different toppings for them such as fruit, candy, whipped cream, or ice cream.

Now you need to buy supplies and ingredients. Wait until you know how many kids will be coming before you do this so that you have enough but not too much. Write a list and follow a recipe to make sure you don’t forget anything. You will need basic ingredients such as flour, eggs, and milk, but also make sure you have enough supplies for the kids to use such as spatulas, spoons, bowls, and pans. Of course, you will also need serving supplies such as utensils, plates, napkins, and cups. Get vibrant colorful tablecloth designs or colors that will match what you are doing. For example, you can do a tropical theme with colorful fruit and tropical decorations and use a lot of fruit with the pancakes. If you are coloring the pancakes, use bright colored tablecloths, cups, plates, and napkins.

Make sure you know exactly what you are going to do before the kids come. If the kids know you don’t know what you’re doing, they might go crazy and take advantage of the situation by making a mess. Set up individual stations for each task. Have one group measure the ingredients, another group mix it together, and another pour on the pan. Only do this for an older group of kids so that they don’t burn themselves. You might want to do this part yourself or have plenty of supervision around. Let each of the kids decorate their own pancakes.

This is a perfect idea that you can get creative with Let the kids draw their names in batter or in icing on the pancakes. Have them each use their favorite colors. Have available many different toppings and let them do whatever they want. Make sure to warn them when you think some foods won’t go well together so that they don’t waste food because it tastes bad. Be creative with party favors and goody bags that have to do with pancakes

This party is very easily adjustable. You might even want to switch from pancakes to French toast or waffles, or include them all! Just get all the kids involved. They will have lots of fun and maybe even learn a little about baking.
