I wanted to share our favorite holiday breakfast ideas, because it is almost time for the holidays and our Elf on the Shelf likes to do a lot of silly things, like make breakfast treats that make the kids laugh!

holiday breakfast kid ideas
This week, our kids have picked a new favorite breakfast food and I am happy to partner with Nature Valley to share it with you because they LOVE it (and so do Mickey and I!):
So this is really a great little breakfast food (or even a great snack) because it is so fast!  Nature Valley™ Protein Soft Baked Granola Bites are perfect on-the-go snacks (which I always need when we are running late!)


This new form of granola (the NV Granola Bites) are soft baked with just a bit of crunch, which great for me because sometimes granola is just too hard to chew.

Oh! I love to give it to the kids in the morning, too (or eat it myself) because it keeps us full until lunch.  It has 7 grams of protein, no artificial colors or flavors, 0gs trans fat and no high fructose corn syrup.

So… one day I came down and the kids had taken my snow-man picture and cut it out and put it on their granola bites (see below- they made that one!)  haha!!  So I wanted to share it with you, because if breakfast is fun – the kids are going to eat it!  I’ll also share some other fun holiday breakfast ideas.

Here is my snowman sheet for a craft that I was making – you can click on it and print it if you want to use it, too!  (I used raisin eyes & buttons, but here you could cut them out below, too).

Ps- my favorites are Blueberry Protein Soft Baked Granola Bites and Honey Nut Almond Soft Baked Granola Bites.

Here are a few fun other breakfast treats!

Lets start with October and this pumpkin!  This is so adorable!  Chocolate syrup mixed with the batter makes for an adorable eyes & mouth!

These Turkey Pancakes are so much fun!   The apple tail & apple beak give it a little extra flavor, too!

I love this Corn on the Cob Waffle idea, too!

Mom Jenni of Jenni Price Illustration shares these lovely Christmas critters that she and her kids created to celebrate the holiday. Made with three different colors of pancake batter, raisins, and cherries

This snowman doughnut idea from the sweetest temptations is so cute with just a box of mini white powdered donuts, candy corn and black frosting. 

Waffle mix combined with some green food coloring makes this Christmas Tree Waffle Breakfast so much fun!  Decorate it with fruit!

These adorable Santa Clauses are so fun for the kids!  All you need is strawberries,  whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles
These green Christmas Tree pancakes are adorable!  They are made with green paste food color to get that bright green look.
I have done this before and it always turns out adorable! Christmas themed pancake molds make it even easier! William’s Sonoma has two-tones molds with a variety of different characters to eat.

  1. Such cute ideas! Last year I made homemade sausage biscuits for Christmas morning. I made them ahead of time and just warmed them in the oven in the morning. It was so easy and delicious.
