Make Time for the #FlowerMoments
We strive to make this blog a resource for families & educators to learn practical applications in emotional management for kids, but we can't forget the importance of making time for the #FlowerMoments. Sometimes the best way to remind your gardener of his or her flowers, is to turn a normal Sunday morning or weeknight into a special memory. To help you make your flower moment, here is an easy, no-stress recipe for #FlowerPancakes! No squeeze bottles or special tools required!
For this recipe, we relied on the classic Bisquick™ pancake mix to make our batter. Next, separate the mix into 4 bowls and add about 6 drops of food coloring to each bowl. Feel free to adjust the amount of food coloring to suit your preference, but remember the color will slightly brown when cooked!
Use a small spoon to create the different shapes - for the inner circle, a small dollop seems to work best and for the petals, use a bit more batter and kind of smear it to create more of a petal shape. For the stems, make as thin a line as you can!
Now for the fun part - assemble! Mix and match your colors, create entire gardens, have fun, and enjoy your delicious flowers.
We can often get wrapped up in the little stuff, especially when trying to incorporate equal parts fun, learning, and creativity all into one perfect activity. The most important thing to remember is to just show up and be there - it doesn't always matter what your are doing, just that you are doing something together!
