PANCAKE GAMES
MAKING PANCAKES
Cut 3-inch “pancakes” out of heavy brown cardboard.
Let your children use them to play the following games.
 
PANCAKE TOSS
Hold a pie pan containing a pancake with both hands. 
Toss up the pancake and try catching it in the pan.
  
PANCAKE WALK
Walk across the room and back while balancing a pancake on a pancake turner.
You could also have children trying balancing a pancake on their head or shoe.
 
 

PANCAKE DROP
Stand beside a large frying pan placed on the floor.
Have children take turns dropping four or five pancakes into the pan.
 
PANCAKE MEMORY

Take six pancakes and mark six with different shapes on one side.
Then mark another six with the same six shapes.
Turn the pancakes over and mix them up.
Let children take turns turning over two pancakes with a pancake turner.
If they turn over two pancakes with identical shapes on their backs, they get to keep the pancakes.
If they turn over two pancakes that are different, they must turn them back over.
Children soon learn to try to remember where different shapes are located.
 
PANCAKE COUNT
Stack pancakes on a paper plate.
Let children take turns counting the pancakes in the stack.
