While Mom and Dad are still resting from their busy week early one Saturday morning, the kids decide to make pancakes on their own. Although there are several cookbooks on the kitchen shelves, the children decide to go with their instincts and take a creative approach to making the batter. The first attempt comes out too thick, and then becomes too runny when they add more milk. By the time they get it to be just the right consistency, it fills the whole bathtub! Who on earth can make so many pancakes, and who could ever eat them all?
