The Big Idea
Order up! It’s a busy day at the diner, so don’t dilly-dally. Help your customers get just what they ordered by racing the other servers to the grill, relay style, and piling up pancakes in precisely the right order in this stack ‘em high, serve ‘em up, relay race game!
Shh… They’re learning!
Cut to the Chase
1. Turn over an order card and call, “Order up!”
2. Players scramble to find the first pancake shown on the order card.
3. Players race to their plates, pancakes on spatulas, to stack the pancakes. Then they run back, handing the spatula to the next player – relay-race style.
4. The race continues until one player or team correctly completes the stack of pancakes shown on his or her card and tops it with a pat of butter!
