Step 1: Pick mom's favorite
Pick one of mom's favorite breakfast foods. Cereal? A frozen waffle? Toast with jelly? Remember, leaving a big mess in the kitchen won't be a very nice gift for her!
If you need to use the toaster or microwave, ask your dad or an older brother or sister to help you.
Step 2: Make a menu
Take a piece of colored construction paper and write a fancy menu for the tray, including the date. It will be a nice keepsake for Mom.
Step 3: Prepare the tray
Before you get the food ready, prepare the tray. Spread a cloth napkin or a clean dish towel on the tray. Add a napkin and Mom's good cutlery.
Step 4: Add a flower
Add a flower. If you can't pick a fresh one, see if there's a fake arrangement in the house that you can pluck one from. Put it in a bud vase, if you have one. If not, a tall drinking glass will do just as nicely.
Don't serve breakfast too early—part of your present should be letting Mom sleep in!
Step 5: Pour juice
Pour mom a small glass of juice and put it on the tray.
Step 6: Add extras
Add whatever extras mom may need—pats of butter, a tiny pot of jam, a small pitcher of syrup. If you have someone older helping you, heating the syrup is a nice touch.
If you're including butter, cut a pat and then use a cheese spreader to cut it into a heart shape.
Step 7: Prepare the food
When everything else is in place, prepare the food. You want to make sure you can serve it warm—unless cold cereal is on the menu, of course!
Step 8: Sit with Mom
Sit with Mom as she enjoys her breakfast in bed. The only thing Moms like better than breakfast in bed is spending time with you!
