As most moms will probably agree, the best Mother’s Day gift, besides lots of mini kisses, is a yummy breakfast prepared by their kiddies (and husband, of course!) and served to them in bed. Even better? A delicious dessert to eat later in the day.

Need some easy-to-make recipe ideas that your tots and spouse will have fun making together? We checked in with Weelicious creator — and mom-of-two — Catherine McCord for her top picks. Check them out below:

Love weelicious!! I have been saving the strawberry/rhubarb crumble for today – making it today. Such great ideas!!!

Great thoughts on the waffles. It is easy and I think my kids could make them without my help. I love using Agave Syrup as I think it is a healthier alternative to syrup. Have a wonderful Mother’s Day with your precious kids! They grow up fast so take a lots of pictures too!
