With Mother's Day right around the corner, my kids have been imagining what to do to show their appreciation for me and other amazing women in our lives. Asking me pretty much non-stop what I want and I tell them what any mom would say, "nothing sweetheart, I have everything I want". Because the truth is I do.
There's nothing I need or want that I don't already have. That answer worked for plenty of years but now that I have a teenager in the house, this answer is not good enough. He wants to get me something tangible. That's one of the things I love most about him. He's always looking out for everyone he loves and wants to really make the day special for me. In fact it was his idea to make me a special meal to celebrate Mother's Day! With the help of his sister and fueled by their favorite drink Tampico Tropical Punch, I got to relax and be pampered with breakfast in bed!
Here are 4 simple breakfast in bed ideas that are perfect for any kid to make for moms this month.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries and Waffles
My kids know I have a weakness for all things fruit and flavorful, so chocolate covered strawberries are on the top of my list as one of my guilty pleasures. This is an easy treat any kid can whip up with just a little help. Pair them with some homemade or store-bought waffles for a simple yet delicious meal!
Bagel & Cream Cheese with Fresh Fruit
Who doesn't love a delicious bagel with cream cheese and a nice bowl of fresh fruit. The kids can also get imaginative by arranging the fruits into flowers or cool shapes! And if they got hungry and ate all the fruit… Tampico Tropical Punch is the perfect way to serve up some flavor!
Croissants with Butter and Jelly
This one takes minimal cooking skills for the younger kids. Buy some croissants, your favorite butter and jelly and let the kids arrange a pretty platter.
Avocado Toast is a simple yet delicious the kids can make with minimal help from mom and dad. Take it a step further and try my 5 Minute Avocado Toast with Egg recipe.
Truthfully, this busy mom doesn't mind one bit that the kids pampered me for a change. It’s refreshing to not worry about what’s on the menu for meals, and just kick back and relax with some delicious food and drinks!
So this Mother's Day let the little ones treat you to a yummy breakfast in bed with our 4 simple breakfast in bed ideas. Let them recruit dad to help if they're not quite old enough to do it by themselves.
Whatever they decide to make you, pair it with a delicious glass of Tampico Tropical Punch. In March, Tampico went through an exciting brand refresh with a new logo, but kept the same great imaginatively curious flavors! It's a colorful and delicious choice not just for moms, but the entire family!
