To make pancake pictures you will need to have an empty ketchup bottle or some other type of plastic squeeze bottle, some pancake batter, and a hot griddle or skillet.
Heat griddle or skillet on medium heat and brush with vegetable oil. When the griddle is at pancake-cooking temperature, a drop of water will instantly sizzle and evaporate.
Fill squeeze bottle with pancake batter. If you want to make colorful pancake art you can add desired amount of food color at this point and shake up the batter.
Use squeeze bottle to squirt out smiley faces, flowers, secret messages or any other cool designs onto the hot griddle (with close supervision, older children can try this, let younger children help with the mixing and then tell you what design they want as they watch from a safe distance during the cooking).
Once your design is on the pan, quickly cover the entire design with a heaping spoonful of pancake batter. Cook until bubbles appear on the uncooked side of the pancake and then carefully flip and bake the other side until golden brown.
Your pancake masterpiece will appear darker than the rest of the pancake. Top with yogurt and fruit or maple syrup and serve up a truly original breakfast!
Here is a recipe for delicious and healthy whole-wheat pancakes but this activity works with any pancake recipe.

2 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 cup yogurt
¼ cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Sift flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Stir together yogurt, milk, oil, egg and add to flour mixture and stir until combined. Do not over mix.
