This activity was perfect for that 20 minute slot when Sophie is hungry but dinner is not ready and if I give her a snack she won’t eat her dinner. I set up the ingredients for making pancakes in Sophie’s toy kitchen and played alongside her. We pretended to add the ingredients and mix them and then put some of the lemon playdough we made earlier into the mixing bowl.
She turned the hob on and signed that it was hot. Then we rolled the playdough out to make pancakes which we cooked in the frying pan. We tried flipping them which she thought was hilarious.
It was really lovely to watch her go back to her kitchen later on and continue to pretend to cook just like her dad in the real kitchen.
She helped to cook real pancakes too and really enjoyed eating them!
