We're celebrating Pancake Tuesday tomorrow!
After the decorating is finished, everyone casts their vote for the creation that looks the most delicious. The winner's name is added to our perpetual "World's Best Pancake Chef" plaque. She or he can wear a special chef cap for the rest of the meal. In addition, the winner chooses the meals we will have for the upcoming week. (This is also my sneaky way of teaching them how to plan nutritious meals!)
Here is a picture of our "World's Best Pancake Chef" plaque:
Each year, I add the name of the winner. It is displayed in our kitchen for the remainder of the year. The kids like to reminsce about the contest and its winner throughout the year, plus plan their creations for next year's contest.
