Now I have been making these Playful Pancakes for a year and selling them to buy goats for kids in Sudan. And I have gotten lots of help from other kids to make them because it is too many to make by myself and plus it is fun so kids like to help. They have catnip inside and a furry tail for the cat to grab onto and throw it around.

We have pictures of almost all of them that have ever been made and they are all different and all have their own name. The pictures are in a photo gallery at http://picasaweb.google.com/PlayfulPancakes/PlayfulPancakes.

There are 110 of them right now. But there are some that we don't have pictures for, like Big lips, Big nose, coby,jack o lantern, kangaroo, kk, loo croow, one eye, and star. And probably more that I forgot to write down. If you have one that doesn't have a picture, will you please take a picture of it and email it to me. Thank you.

Here are a couple of examples:

More New Helpers!

I used to be backordered on Playful Pancakes - I needed 19. Now I have 19 and extra because of my newest helpers who are a group of 11-year-old girls from the LDS church. They invited me to their Friendship Around the World activity day and I showed them how to make Playful Pancakes and they made a lot. Also I got to make a bracelet and I think it looks quite pretty.

So thank you to the girls who helped me make a lot of Playful Pancakes today. Just remember, each Pancake equals one goat for a kid in Sudan, and that is a big deal because then the kids can live.

Here are the names of the ones we made today:
Mr. Whiskers
your highness
Charlie Brown
Count Cat-u-la
Cat in a Box
Cuddle Bear

Some new Playful Pancake makers

This is Jenna and Anya. I taught them how to make Playful Pancakes and they did a good job.

We made them at the Corvallis Multicultural Literacy Center - I love that place. Jenna's little brother Alan played with my little brother Jack in the playroom while we worked.
Here is what we made:
