    Default Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Tuesday) WWYD?

    Would you:

    Go to the school with everything to make a couple for your child?

    Make some at home and take them to school for the teacher to give them to your child cold?

    Buy an appropriate shake mix and give it to your child's teacher?

    I'm thinking option 3, but take it this week so the teacher has notice. But then I think it's a bit much to expect of the teacher. But then I think, why is it too much to ask when they make them for the other kids?

    And if I provide them, do I still pay the gold coin donation that's meant to cover the cost of them? Even if I make them at home and take them in?

    I'd do option 3 and still do the gold coin donation personally, but don't think it's a big issue if you don't.

    Our teacher last year had coeliacs, so she happily made pancakes DD could eat

    Other years I have sent up the mixture and/or sent up cold pancakes

    Def speak to the teacher the week before so they have time to get their head around the WHOLE thing, even needing diff frying pan and diff utensils

    Does the school actually make them? When I was in school Maccas supplied them.

    They are made in the tuckshop. Her new aide is aware of cross contamination problems.

    Personally I'd make them and send them cold. Mum used to send us pancakes to school cold made that morning for recess all the time just top them with spreads while still warm

    yeah sending them cold sounds easiest when we were at school they were always cold anyway by the time they cooked them and handed out to whole school

    The gold coin is to cover costs, but when they had a sausage sizzle I took hers in and they still charged her for it.
