5 Fun Easter Breakfast Ideas for Kids to Make
Celebrating Easter with activities involving bunnies and egg hunting is foreign to most Filipino families, including ours. Nevertheless, eating food that is popular during Easter brunch like chocolate eggs, hot cross buns, bunny cupcakes is certainly a treat.
So here's a menu that the kids can prepare not just for Easter and with some adult supervision, of course.
Easy Breakfast Ideas That Kids Can Make At Home
Spread a burrito size flour tortilla with cream cheese. Using whipped cream cheese is easy for little hands to spread. Sprinkle the cream cheese with brown sugar and dried cranberries. Roll up, put in a zip lock bag and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Have an adult cut the rolled burrito into three slices. Arrange the slices around a bowl of fresh strawberries sprinkled with brown sugar and a dollop of whipped cream or whipped topping.
Use a large ice cream sundae glass. Put cornflakes (or your favorite breakfast cereal) in the bottom of the glass to about 1/3 full.
Place a scoop of ice cream next and press down a bit, so the ice cream is smooshed down in the glass.
Put another layer of cornflakes and then another scoop of ice cream.
Top with chocolate syrup, caramel sauce, butter scotch sauce or fresh fruit.

Use frozen French toast. Cut into heart shapes with a cookie cutter.
Cover the top of the heart with sliced fresh strawberries. Outline the heart shape with canned whipped cream topping.
If you don't like strawberries, you can use whole raspberries. Or make a two-toned heart with blueberries and raspberries.
Easy Eggs Benedict
These aren't the real deal because hollandaise sauce is a little tricky for kids to make.
Toast an English muffin. Spread with butter. Add fresh spinach leaves, topped with a slice of deli ham or bacon if you prefer on top of each muffin half.
Slice a hardboiled egg on top of the muffin. Mix together one tablespoon of mayonnaise with 1/2 teaspoon of mustard. Place a dollop of the mixture on top of the eggs.
Elegant Scrambled Eggs
Mix together two well-beaten eggs with one tablespoon of cream or half and half. Scramble over low heat.
When the eggs are set but still creamy add 1 tablespoon of cream cheese, 1/4 cup of tiny cooked shrimp and 1/2 teaspoon of snipped dill.
Stir through to heat and melt the cream cheese. Serve on toast points.
Prepare this recipe with older children because there is a little cooking involved.
Now breakfast or brunch is almost ready. Just add in a platter of slivered ham, precooked bacon, or pre-cooked sausages. Complete the menu with pitchers of orange juice, hot tea and coffee. Don't worry about dessert.. There will be plenty of Easter basket candy.
