These easy Mother's Day breakfast ideas your kids can make are things you will actually want to eat.
A delicious Mother's Day breakfast in bed that your kids can make all on their own is not an impossible dream.
After you've worked so hard for your family all year, you deserve to be spoiled on your special day.
If you want to be served a breakfast you'll actually enjoy eating, all it takes is setting your expectations properly and giving your family a few very specific "hints."
It has long been my experience that having to guess what I want causes undue stress for my family.
Instead, if I simply tell them what I hope to see on that breakfast tray, they will go out of their way to make it happen.
Knowing in advance what they will prepare for me ensures that:
- I will love what they make.
- I can look forward to my breakfast.
- They will actually have fun preparing it.
- The whole morning goes WAY more smoothly than if they are trying to guess.

What Your Family Needs to Know First
If you want a delicious Mother's Day breakfast in bed, do yourself a favor and tell your family exactly what you want.
Don't make them guess.
They love you, they want to make you happy, but it will relieve the pressure from everyone and avoid disappointment from you if you take the "surprise factor" out of the equation.
You may assume your family knows these things, but they most likely do not.
Take just a minute to give them a simple heads up:
- How do you like your morning beverage?
- What's your favorite breakfast?
- Do you want a magazine to read or total control over the remote?
- Do you want to enjoy your meal at the table or do you prefer it delivered bedside?
Imagine your perfect Sunday morning, describe it to them in detail and watch as they make that magic happen!
Keep It Easy
We are thoughtful moms. Though eggs benedict may be your favorite breakfast ever, let your kids feel like superheroes by requesting simple dishes you know they are capable of making.
Just because it's easy doesn't mean it can't be delicious.
If you're stumped, I've made an awesome list to get you started.
I even designed the sweetest little printable menu for you to check off which items you want.
My girls LOVE playing restaurant, give this gift to your own kids and let them spoil you!
10 EASY Mother's Day Breakfast Ideas for Kids
I've listed the Mother's Day breakfast ideas from the easiest to a few that require just a little bit more work.
There is plenty of space on the printable menu to mark your own personal preferences:
1. Fruit Kabobs with Pina Colada Dip
This decadent pineapple coconut fruit dip is delicious with whatever fresh fruit you love most. The kids can simply scoop some into a pretty bowl and serve it alongside the washed fruit.
While not necessary, if they're feeling a little "extra", the kids could cut melon into heart shapes using a small cookie cutter. Check out this adorable idea!
7. Breakfast Burritos
You could make these with them ahead of time and stock them in the freezer, they just have to heat them up on Mother's Day morning. Get the recipe here.
I love to eat mine with a little hot sauce drizzled on the side. Sour cream or taco sauce would also be delicious.
10. Monte Cristo Sandwich Pinwheels
This easy brunch recipe uses prepared crescent roll dough and a few simple ingredients to make a sweet and savory breakfast pinwheel moms will love.
The kids will have fun baking these Monte Cristo sandwich pinwheels, dusting them with powdered sugar, and serving with tiny cups of berry jam for dipping.
