Magical Christmas Breakfast Ideas for Kids

Christmas morning is magical for kids; you know very well that you have an early morning coming up. Kids can only contain their excitement for so long before they burst into the room and wake you from your cozy slumber. I learned a few tricks from my sisters about making Christmas morning just a little easier, and a little more special. Most people will give the kids an early bed time, which does make sense. You need time to do last-minute preparations while they’re asleep. However, the earlier they go to bed, the earlier they wake up. Not to mention, kids will have a hard time falling asleep anyways.

The next is a bit more difficult: try to wake up before the kids. Yes that’s a bit early for a day off, but it’s worth it. Plus, they might wake you up ten minutes later anyways! Sneak down to the kitchen and prepare a fun holiday breakfast to have ready and waiting for the kids. They will be so happy that you’re already up and waiting with fun, tasty breakfast!

To help with plans, I’ve added some great Christmas morning recipes from Pinterest. Try these out!
