Dad Creates Educational Pancakes For His Kids

Nathan Shields, a talented illustrator and math teacher currently living as a stay-at-home dad in Saipan, will give you some amazing parenting tips on playing with your food. He uses his expert illustration skills to create surprisingly detailed pancake art that is as beautiful as delicious. As if we needed another reason to love pancakes!

I sure hope Shields’ kids love pancakes, because his creativity on kids’ education knows no bounds. From Star Wars characters to extinct animal species to mathematical fractals, he draws it all – and he probably draws better with pancake batter than most of us do with pen or pencil.

Young kids learn best when they’re having fun, so it certainly helps that the majority of Shields’ crazy pancakes are reasonably accurate representations of different species of both marine and land-based organisms. They get to learn and have a delicious breakfast (or lunch or dinner) at the same time. That’s raising kids at its best!
