Summertime! This season is synonymous with so many things, and one of those is berry picking. Last year we headed out late in the season for blueberries. This year we made sure not to miss the strawberry window. Kids will love gathering the sweet red berries, and discovering the baby green strawberries still on the plant.
The fun doesn’t end at home: Fruit baskets are great for fine motor skills! We picked a few pretty colors of ribbon and wove through the holes in the basket.
If you already have strawberry crates at home, do this project ahead of time, and bring your one-of-a-kind basket when you do your picking.
Then of course comes the bonus: strawberry vanilla pancakes for breakfast.
1 cup flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 Ener-G egg
1 cup vanilla almond milk
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped strawberries
Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl.
Cook on a griddle or skillet for 3 minutes until bubbles form on the top. Flip over and cook 2 to 3 minutes on the other side.
Pancakes have never tasted so much like summer!
