Kids can make a paper plate PANCAKE craft that looks good enough to eat! Also included are directions to make SYRUP out of craft supplies to put on top.
This pancake craft is going to make you hungry–because it’s topped with a pat of butter and dripping in syrup (don’t worry it isn’t really syrup and it isn’t sticky once it dries, but it looks as good as the real thing).
If you Give a Mouse a Cookie is a favorite book of ours and now we have a complete set of If You Give Book Set by Laura Numeroff-affiliate link including If You Give a Pig a Pancake-affiliate link. It’s just as silly and cute, and this time a cute little pig gets a pancake–yummy!
This pancake craft is so fun to make. The 3D affect that the stacked paper plates make, add to the fun and enjoyment kids will have making their own plate of pancakes!
After storytime you can add to the fun with this printable Pig and Pancake Letter Recognition activity that’s perfect for your little preschooler.
Check out our Paper Plate Cookie Craft and Free Printables to go along with If You Give a Mouse a Cookie too!
Pancake Paper Plate Craft
3 Small Paper Plates-affiliate link
1 Large Paper Plate-affiliate link
Brown, white, yellow paint
Yellow craft paper
Mix brown, white, and a little bit of yellow paint together to make tan and have child paint the bottom of 3 small plates and set them aside to dry.
Have child paint large paper plate to decorate the plate that will hold the pancakes.
Glue the paper plates to the large plate trying to layer them so that they aren’t nested directly on top of each other.
Mix glue and brown paint and drizzle it on top of the pancakes to look like syrup. We used an almost empty bottle of glue because you don’t need very much.
Cut out a square-shaped pat of butter and glue it on top and now your pancakes are ready to enjoy!
