Try your hand at making pancake cereal – South Coast Herald

Does your child beg you to make them pancake cereal for breakfast? Pancake cereals and other mini foods turned into breakfast cereals are all the rage on social media (TikTok has plenty of pancake cereal videos).

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

Most children – even older ones – like to help in the kitchen. They like to stir and mix and are very practical.

While making pancake cereal, encourage your child to use their senses by smelling the syrup, touching the flour, and even tasting an ingredient before putting it in the mixing bowl.

Watch the video below to learn how to help your child make their own pancake cereal.
