4th of July Fire Cracker Pancakes
4th of July is coming up so we had some American fun with our firecracker pancakes. We used pancakes, eggs, blueberries, strawberries, and whipped cream.

We made our pancakes into a rectangle shape. We sliced blueberries and strawberries. We lined up the blueberries on the top of the pancake and lined the strawberries up with spaces under the blueberries. Add some blueberries to make the fuse. We beat 1 egg and fried that up in the pan. Cool a bit and cut it into a star to add to the top. Finish it off with spraying on the whipped cream in between the strawberries.

My kids are not big on eating blueberries unless we make something like this. They gobbled them all up!

Linking up to these awesome link parties…please check them out!

I found you through Today's Creative Blog…you have great ideas to get kids in the kitchen! I love your pancake firecracker. I'd like to try making a stack of pancakes that look like a swimming pool. Maybe color them blue with blue food coloring or spread some blueberry applesauce on top and sprinkle with blue sparkle dust…add some banana slice rafts, blueberry beach balls…I'd love to hear your suggestions!
