Fun Holiday Recipes That Children Can Make

The holiday season is a time for families to come together, create new traditions, and spend some time enjoying the Christmas break. This is more important than ever this year as social distancing, face masks, and lockdowns have changed the way we work, play and learn.

One of the best ways for families to come together during the holidays is to get in the kitchen and start cooking. Children as young as 4 can help out in the kitchen with supervision and, as they grow older, they can gain some valuable skills that they can use when they have children of their own.

Keeping that in mind, we are going to take a look at some fun holiday recipes that you can make with your children this Christmas:

Santa Pancakes

How To Make Santa Pancakes

  • Start with your favourite pancake recipe. Make as many pancakes as you think you will need for breakfast.

  • Slice fresh ripe strawberries and arrange in a triangle at the top of the pancakes. This will be Santa’s hat.
