5 Fun Easter Breakfast Ideas for Kids to Make

easter breakfast ideas

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


Breakfast Rollups 

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.


Breakfast Parfait 

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.


Fabulous French Toast

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.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
