Stay-at-Home-Dad Teaches His Children About the World with Pancakes

There are plenty of ways parents can teach their children about life and the world around them. This father just so happens to do things a little differently.

Nathan Shields, a math teacher turned stay-at-home-dad, has an amazing and creative way of educating his son and daughter — in the kitchen!

Every day, the trio get together to make pancakes in the shapes of sharks, butterflies, vegetables, protozoa, and animal skulls.

When we were kids, there was nothing we loved more than to wake up early on Sunday morning to the smell of chocolate chip pancakes and bacon cooking in the kitchen, but Shields definitely takes it up a notch!

Check out this video of the family getting innovative with their pancake batter.
