The Fun Way to Make Oatmeal with Kids

I love feeding the kids a nutritious breakfast.   I also love teaching them independence and watching my preschoolers have a sense of accomplishment when they “make Daddy’s oatmeal”.   It’s precious!   Here are a few of the ways we have fun with our morning oatmeal.   Do you do anything to make breakfast more interesting?   I’d love to hear about it in the comments!

The kids get to pick their own packet – Better Oats has quite the variety of flavors – and dump the oats and water into their own bowls.

Sometimes, they talk me into stenciling their initial onto their bowls:

Other times we just decorate our oatmeal with faces or globs of applesauce. Either way, our kids enjoy their oatmeal and I enjoy a cooking activity my preschoolers can for the most part do by themselves!

    That looks like a fun breakfast. I love to change things up a bit for breakfast because I am not what you would like to call al morning person.
