If You Give a Pig a Pancake

17 Dec

Read the story If You Give a Pig a Pancake, by Laura Numeroff and follow it up with this pancake art project.


  • Paper plate
  • 1 piece brown construction paper
  • 1 piece yellow construction paper
  • Elmer’s glue
  • Maple flavoring (found in the baking aisle of the grocery store)
  • Pencil
  • Scissors


  1. Mix 1/4 teaspoon of maple flavoring in the bottle of glue and mix well. If it doesn’t smell enough like maple, add 1/4 tsp. more until the scent is desirable.
  2. Draw three circles on the brown construction paper for pancakes. They should be able to fit on the paper plate.
  3. Have your child cut out the circles and glue them on the paper plate.
  4. Have your child cut out a small square from the yellow construction paper to represent a pat of butter. Glue it on top of the pancakes.
  5. Squeeze the maple scented glue over the butter and pancakes as syrup. Set aside to dry.

Your child can use this plate of pancakes for pretend play in their “kitchen”. M-mmm, delicious!
