Step 1:  The first thing you’re going to do is make the pancake batter according to the directions. I used 1 cup of pancake mix to make silver dollar pancakes in the 7 colors of the rainbow.

Step 2:  Once the batter is make you’re going to separate it into 7 small bowls.  I used child size cereal bowls.

 

Step 3: Now your going to add a couple of drops of different color food coloring in each bowl.  This is the perfect time to teach the kids about mixing colors.  Most food coloring packages come with red, blue, green and yellow.  You can show the kids that if you mix yellow and red you will get orange and red and blue make purple.

 

Step 4: Cook the pancakes how you normally would.  Then stack them in order of the colors of the rainbow.  Roy G. BIV  Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet.
