4th of July Breakfast- Firecracker Pancakes

I live for a holiday breakfast and coming up with new ideas every year.  The theme for this 4th of July breakfast was firecrackers.  I made firecracker pancakes and also a DIY firecracker craft.  I also served red, white and blue parfaits.  Red and blue milk topped everything off.

I only tackle simple projects and this one is not an exception.  The food supplies were pancake mix, strawberries, blueberries, whip cream, powdered sugar, sprinkles, milk and food coloring.  You make pancakes as normal and then cut out star shapes.  I used a cookie cutter and put them on a food skewer.  I then added blueberries and strawberries.  I topped off the pancake with powdered sugar and festive sprinkles.

The parfaits couldn't be any easier!  I layered strawberries, whip cream, blueberries and more whip cream.  You could even add sprinkles to the top!  The festive milk is just milk with good coloring.

Children eagerly participate in measuring ingredients, stirring batter, and flipping pancakes on the griddle. The sizzling sound and enticing aroma captivate their senses, creating a memorable culinary experience. Pancakes, often adorned with toppings like syrup and fruits, become a canvas for creativity, allowing kids to customize their stack. This cherished morning ritual not only satisfies their taste buds but also cultivates a love for cooking and shared family moments.
