Awesome Dad Makes Educational Pancakes for His Kids #makereducation
Saipancakes, math teacher and illustrator, combines two of life’s great joys – pancakes and learning – yielding incredible results. The details on the educational pancakes he makes for his children are impressive (not to mention delicious looking!). via laughingsquid.
Seeing slugs around our house and garden everyday, we thought it was about time they showed up on our breakfast plates. We learned a lot about slugs this morning, including the fact that they have a breathing hole on one side, and that they each have both boy and girl private parts. Gryphon thought we should also include Jabba the Hutt in the tribute to slugs. They both measured out ingredients on our quest to find the best pancake recipes. I was surprised that the pancake Gryphon made came out just as planned: an adapted Jolly Roger featuring Darth Vader and two light sabers.
