There was this one thing I was always told when I was a kid at the dinner table. I’m sure many of you were told the same thing. You might have even said to your kids once or twice. That thing is “Don’t play with your food”. I can’t imagine how many times this phrase was said to me. Which is solid evidence that I either didn’t listen or just really liked to play with my food. I think it was the latter because I still like to play with my food. So now I encourage my kids to get creative with food. Why? Because it’s fun, that’s why. So here’s a little fun with food idea for you. Let’s make a house out of Hungry Jack waffles.

  1. Hungry Jack is the best when it comes to pancakes and waffles! And now I’m going to step breakfast up by creating this very waffle house.

  2. We love waffles, it’s been awhile since we had any though, your pictures make me want some right now!

  3. I always got in trouble for playing with my food too! Funny, how we encourage it now! Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  4. Very creative idea. I have tried the Hungry Jack pancakes, but have not made waffles with it before. I will have to try some with the kids.

  5. This waffle house is cute. This is a great ideal to do with our grandkids they love waffles

  6. I would make a dream house out of Slim Jims. They would make a nice log cabin. Hungry Jack products are super delicious.

  7. That was a cute idea. My kiddos and I might make a waffle house instead of a gingerbread one as a table decoration for our annual holiday brunch.

  8. The waffle house is very cute. I would be too busy eating my Hungry Jack waffles to build anything with them!

  9. We eat waffle and pancakes every Sunday. It is rteally the only morning we have enough time to make them, and by eating them semi-infrequently, the kids never tire of them.

  10. The waffle house is such a good idea. I bet your kids enjoy eating and coming up with ideas. I wish my grandkids lived closer. This would be such fun to do with them
