Pancake Day with Num Noms

For a long time now the children have been big fans of Num Noms, little scented character which are made to look, and smell, like food! With a whole range of Num Nom products, from regular Nums, lip gloss, nail varnish and motorised Noms, they are the perfect collectible toys for little hands.

When we were sent a collection of Num Noms and everything we needed for our own pancake creations, the children were beyond excitement. “Num Noms and pancakes are our favourite things ever!!” Megan told me.

Before we got down to making our pancakes, the children couldn’t wait to open up their Series 4 Num Noms. We were sent the Tea Party set with a glitter lipgloss, much to their excitement!

The children love that you can play with Num Noms in so many ways. Either stacking them up to create their own inventive recipes, or playing with them individually as little characters.

We were also sent the Num Noms Lights which has a light up Nom you can even wear as a ring!

Once I had prised them away from their Num Noms, we set to work on our pancakes.

I love Pancake Shaker Mix, especially with children. There’s no messing about with eggs and whisking, just a little water, the top firmly screwed, let them shake it for two minutes and then it’s time to get cooking!

The children were a little disappointed as, due to us having an induction hob, we couldn’t use the lovely heart shaped pancake pan we had been sent. Instead we had to make do with regular round ones. “Round ones are boring!” Harry sighed.

The children’s favourite part was the filling and although most of it went into their mouths, they did manage to get a little on the pancakes too!

With an assortment of chocolate spread and sprinkles, Eva couldn’t wait to tuck in. Her verdict? Delicious!!!

Harry, Megan and Eva decided that Eva’s pancakes were by far the tastiest and awarded her a Pancake Champion certificate!

We loved taking part in the Num Noms Pancake Day challenge and once the children are in bed I will definitely be tucking into a few of my own!!

    My husband cannot find out that it’s pancake day – or else he will request I make him STACKS and… That would require me to go to the store LOL!

    I like how you used num noms to encourage the children to make pancakes of their own and it is wonderful that Eva was awarded the coveted title of ‘pancake champion’ as well! My favourite topping for pancakes are nutella but I wonder what the num noms favourite topping is? What do you think? x

      Oh the Num Noms have all kinds of weird and wonderful flavours! I’m with you on Nutella! xx

        I could quite literally eat a tub of nutella to myself that is how greedy I am LOL. But on another note I am interesting in hearing more about these ‘weird and wonderful flavours’ that the Num Noms have! xx

    Looks like a great time was had by all and the num noms too! I have never had Nutella on my pancakes, but I just might have to try that with sprinkles. I really enjoy a good pancake. I am so glad you were able to make these memories with your kids.

      Oh Nutella is the best!! We had a great time making them! xx

    My daughter loves nom noms and pancakes! She would have been thrilled to find this on our doorstep. That is such a cute pancake kit. It looks like you had everything you needed to celebrate Strove Tuesday!

    You all look like you enjoyed pancake day! I agree I always use the mix, much easier and giving more time for actually enjoying the pancakes!

    • Laura Dove
      February 14, 2018 / 12:16 pm

      Oh always!! It might be the lazy way but it’s just so much easier! xx

    Pancakes always go down a storm in our house! I love how this encourages children to get into the kitchen, we always encourage ours with cooking. I think it helps children build a good relationship with food and build on important cooking skills.

    • Laura Dove
      February 14, 2018 / 12:14 pm

      Yes I agree, it’s lovely to get them involved in cooking from a young age! xx

    This was so much fun! I think num noms are adorable and I love how it smells! It’s also one of the toys that I bought for my nieces last Christmas.

    I am gutted I didn’t think to get a heart shaped pan, would have been an excellent idea. I didn’t even think about getting a premade mix, sounds so much easier than going through the hassle of making them from scratch. Lovely post and Eva looks great in her hat! x

    • Laura Dove
      February 14, 2018 / 9:16 pm

      Thanks Olivia. I always get a pre-made mix, way less faffing about! xx

  14. February 14, 2018 / 7:20 pm

    oh my word these kids are too cute! Cooking with them must be so fun.

    Your litle pancake chefs look super happy with efforts and well done Eva on being the champion. We were very lucky to have ours cooked for us last night and they were delicious. Mich x

  17. February 15, 2018 / 8:19 am

    The num noms are adorable, as are the kiddos. Your pancakes managed to turn out significantly better than ours did – I don’t know what I do wrong but I always end up with a hot mess, maybe Eva can teach me?

    • Laura Dove
      February 15, 2018 / 10:41 am

      Heheh Eva definitely considers herself the pancake champion! xx

  18. February 15, 2018 / 11:00 am

    mmm these look delicious! So much fun!

    I can’t wait for Amelia to get older so we can do things like this.. wait… *smacks hand* don’t wish time away haha

      The light ups are the girls favourites! They love to switch all the lights off and have their Num Noms light up! xx
