Corncake Lions


From "Crafts & More for Children's Ministry" by Karyn Henley & Lois Keffer, published by Group:

1 egg
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup flour
1 cup milk

Mix egg, sugar, baking powder & salt in a bowl. Add flour and milk. Add cornmeal until batter is as thick as pancake batter. Pour several circles of batter into the skillet. With a spoon gently draw out the batter from the center of each circle to make "spikes" to be like a lion's mane. Put raisins on the corncakes for eyes and nose before you turn them over. This recipe makes about eight 3 or 4 inch corncakes.

Science Idea


thanks - my first Sunday is this week (yes, I always wait until the last minute) we'll make lion chow - and probably pancakes for the 3-5th grade.

I found this neat example on some web site---


  • You put salt (God's people) on a plate (the world) shake a small amount of pepper on top (evil-sin-problems).
  • Rub a plastic spoon (God) against cloth to create static electricity.
  • The people pray and the spoon lifts away the evil-sin-problems when you place the spoon over the top of the salt/pepper.

It works, I tried it and I hope our kids will think it's neat. Only takes about five minutes. Thanks for all your help. Mary
