Bake a Batch of Maple Leaf Pancakes
With this year's Winter Olympics being held in Vancouver, Canada; Canadians have a chance to proudly wear and wave their flags for the duration of the Games. Each Olympics takes on characteristics of the host country, and this year a popular Canadian emblem, the maple leaf, will be prominently featured throughout the event. The maple leaf is featured as the logo of many Canadian companies, sports teams, and even the central crest of the national flag!
Pay homage to the host of the 2010 Winter Olympics by baking up a batch of maple leaf pancakes! Bonding over breakfast will give you and your child the opportunity to discuss the importance of the Olympics and its host country. Not to mention, he will learn kitchen basics and boost his math skills as he measures ingredients.
