Mothers and mother figures do an enormous amount for their families—whether it’s making lunches in the morning, tucking the kids in at night after a long work day or serving as a one-person shuttle for music lessons and sports practice. This year, help your kids celebrate Mom or the mother figures in their lives, and show her just how much she’s appreciated. These three Mother’s Day breakfast in bed ideas are easy, quick and simple enough that the littles can join in. It’s also a great way for them to learn about food prep and basic kitchen skills—they can help design a menu, shop and do basic meal prep in a safe way.

Of course, these aren’t the only easy Mother’s Day breakfast in bed ideas. You can also try some of the other recipes we’ve featured, like heart-shaped cinnamon rolls or a quick quiche. And don’t forget about clean-up! If the kids are too small to do more of the food-oriented tasks, putting them on dish-rinsing or counter-wiping duty is a great compromise for when they want to help.
