Nothing says Happy Mother’s Day like the sweet gift of breakfast in bed. But getting something warm and delicious can be a challenge if the kids aren't allowed near the stove. When I was kid there wasn't many options for breakfasts kids can actually make on Mother's Day. My sweet mother was the poor victim of cold cereal, a fruit salad, orange juice, and coffee. Today though, kids are so much more skillful than I was growing up. Even as an adult of 40 years, I know there’re just some things I can’t do in the kitchen. But this is not case of my god children, whose skills in the kitchen are far more advance then mine. At the ages of 11, 14, and 17 years old, I’ve enjoyed watching their culinary skills develop, but this was not the case just five year ago.
The kitchen can be a pretty scary place for little hands, but even scarier for the big hands looking over the little hands. With food processors, blenders, and mixers at high speeds, this childless girl had had plenty mini heart attacks in the kitchen when trying to prepare meals with my god children. Over the years, I’ve come across some really great foodie moms who know this life and have created some easy and delicious breakfasts your kid can actually make for you on mother's day. Here are my favorites. Sorry moms; clean up not included.
