Plan the perfect Breakfast in Bed with the kids this Mother's Day with our easy and delicious recipe ideas. Make it a special occasion for the whole family by getting the kids to help - it's your special day off after all!
Preparing breakfast in bed for Mother's Day doesn't have to be hard; just make sure everything is prepared in advance so mum gets a well-deserved lie-in! Read our tips below to make sure everything runs smoothly on the day:
- Get organised a few days before the special day - take stock of what you have in the kitchen and buy any ingredients you need; see our printable Order Sheet so mum can "order" what she wants on the day.
- Get the kids to help (under adult supervision, of course). Make sure to choose an easy recipe that your little ones can help make, like a muffin or smoothie. Getting the kids involved is a fun and easy way to get them in the kitchen and is a great way to spend time together as a family.
- Prepare the dish in advance, ideally the day before so that you can have a relaxing lie-in in the morning. On the day itself, have your husband or kids just heat up your dish and bring it in with you for a delicious breakfast in bed.
It's a day for you to get pampered so why not make it a day to remember with our easy breakfast in bed recipes below.
