Great Ideas for a Kid's Breakfast Birthday Party

First, let me list why you should plan a breakfast birthday party for your kiddo’s next birthday bonanza.

  1. Uhhh...breakfast foods are the best: doughnuts, kolaches, breakfast tacos, pancakes….shall I go on?
  2. Breakfast foods are cheap (unless you start going all smoked salmon and crabs benedict, but why would anyone make that for a kid’s birthday).
  3. You’re competing with less other events that may be going on the same day.
  4. The parents will thank you cause they get to drop in for a few hours at the start of their day, and they still have a whole chunk of day to do other things after the party.
  5. Most toddlers that are still napping, typically nap mid-day after lunchtime, so you wouldn’t be encroaching on nap times (this reason is only for those planning a party with a lot of toddlers attending)   

Now, here are some fun ideas that will get your party going…

YUMMIES: You definitely need some scrumptous bites and sweets to go with your breakfast birthday celebration.
