Today I would like to welcome JDaniel4's Mom to Growing A Jeweled Rose. JDaniel4's Mom shares lots of fun activities for young children, and is always doing fun things with food. Today is one illustration of the yummy activities you will find on her site!
I am so excited about sharing on Growing a Jeweled Rose today. It is quite an honor to be here. I love stopping by to see what Crystal is sharing. My four year old and I love to explore the ideas shared here at our house.
Did you know that August is National S'more Month? I didn't realize it until I looked for fun and unique holidays in August online at the beginning of the summer.
My son doesn't really like traditional s'mores. I think some of it has to do with the difficulty he has had in holding all the pieces together.
He does love all of the ingredients in a s'more. He will inhale any or all of them when they are not put together.
I thought it would be fun to combine two of the ingredients into one of his favorite foods and give him the remaining ingredient to build a fun breakfast sandwich.
We started by mixing 3/4 cup of pancake mix with 1/4 cup of graham cracker crumbs.
Then he added 3/4 cup of water and three tablespoons of mini chocolate chips to the mixture.
My son loves to mix. He is in fact a two fisted mixer at times.
After he finished mixing, I baked mini pancakes for him.
When they were done, he placed mini marshmallows between two mini pancakes to create a s'more pancake sandwich.
He really seemed to enjoy them!
