I love making any occasion a fun occasion! We made these really fun 4th of July breakfast for our kids last year. It was such a hit I wanted to share it with you too.

Independence Day Food for Kids
Mix up your favorite pancake recipe. [not only are these delicious, they make a small batch which works great for this special recipe]
Make one pancake per person plane (making sure to leave one side very lightly browned to be mostly white for the stars.)
Now add 1/2 cup or so blueberries and mash into the batter. Now cook at least one blue pancake per person (making sure to leave one side very lightly browned to be mostly white for the stars.blue.)
Now mix up another batch of your favorite pancake recipe. This time mash in 1 cup raspberries or strawberries to get a nice red color. [if you like you can intensify your color with food coloring. If you do, I suggest using natural food based food coloring no artificially dyed one.]
Now cut out little stars from the white pancakes to make stars. You will want 4-5 small stars per person.
Finally, you stack up your 4th of July breakfast. Put the red pancake down in the middle. Add whip cream [we make ours fresh with this whip cream canister] to make about 4 stripes. Now add your blue pancake off to the side. Top the blue pancake with 4-5 stars. Now you have a super fun and easy to make Independence Day Breakfast for kids!
