Try your hand at making cereal pancakes


Is your child begging you to make him cereal pancakes for breakfast? Pancakes and other mini-foods made into breakfast cereals are all the rage on social media (TikTok has plenty of pancake videos).

While you might not be ready to roll a batch of mini croissants, mini pancakes take enough effort to be fun and take great photos on social media.

Most children, even older ones, like to help in the kitchen. They love to stir and mix and are very handy.

As you bake pancakes, encourage your child to use their senses by smelling syrup, touching flour, and even tasting an ingredient before putting it in the mixing bowl.
