  • Pancake batter homemade or box mix
  • Squirt bottle – I bought one at Walmart for less than $2


  • Make your pancakes according to the directions.
  • Add a little extra milk or water to the mix to thin out the pancakes.
    Thick pancakes will clog up the squirt bottle.
  • Mix thoroughly to remove all lumps.
    Lumps also clog the squirt bottle.
  • Fill your bottle with pancake batter. I found using a ladle and funnel worked best.
  • Using the bottle create designs on a hot buttered griddle. I set mine to 350 degrees. Initially I started out making snowflakes, but they kept looking like spider webs, so I went on to other things. Using the bottle allows you to draw on the griddle. I am not an artist, but it was easy to make snowmen, Christmas trees, stars, gingerbread men, even write the kids’ names.
  • You can even add chocolate chips or sprinkles.
  • Your kids will absolutely love these pancakes. It doesn’t matter how they taste, somehow eating your name in pancake is the best thing in the world for a six year old.
