Breakfast time at our home in the summer is a meal we cherish, since during the school year, breakfast is all about let’s get through it to get ready for school!
During the Summer, we take our time and make it into a family affair! Here are my favorite ways to make breakfast special:
Ideas To Make Your Summer Breakfasts Special
Get The Kids Involved
Once a week we chat about a day a week, when one of us will determine the menu and prepare breakfast. My son just turned 14, so he looooves doing it!
His favorite is to pour Lucky Charms over jelly on toast or top a bowl with yogurt and fruits with Lucky Charms (which we always get at our local Walmart Store) as the final touch. It gives him a sense of responsibility and the pleasure of serving us a delicious breakfast and getting all the praises!
Breakfast in Bed
Sometimes I surprise hubby and son with breakfast in bed with a tray full of delicious breakfast options they love! Why not add that sweet accent to your favorite smoothie bowl? Why not????
Sometimes my son likes getting up late and he doesn’t really feel hungry for a big breakfast, so I prepare a smoothie and top it with Lucky Charms, a presentation nobody can resist!! It always puts a smile on his face!!
Here are a few other fun ideas you can make with the Lucky Charms:
- Use Marshmallows as a fun decorating topping for cupcakes!
- Marshmallows are a great compliment to yogurt and fruit, giving that sweet ending your kids will love
- Why not top your favorite ice cream with Marshmallows for a colorful fun addition?
You know the sky is the limit when you talk about Marshmallows!!!
Let me know what you think! Do you have any special Summer breakfast ideas? As usual, give us a Trendy Shout!
My brother bloody loves Lucky Charms, so pretty sure he’d love all these recipe ideas x
These are really cute ideas of using Lucky Charms. Believe it or not my kids don’t really like sweet cereal!
Lucky Charms has always been in my top 5 of favorite cereals! I have never thought of putting them anywhere except a bowl with milk! The Lucky Charms and toast is very interesting, something I just might have to try! Thanks for the great tips!
Now that is being creative with your Lucky Charms. It’s the kids favorite cereal and I’m sure if I were to get creative with it, I could get them to try more foods.
Lucky Charms is one of my fav cereals! I never thought to put it on toast or in a drink though! This changes things!!
These are cute ideas. We make our lucky charms with fruits often. Alwys a hit with the kids
My kids love Lucky Charms and I would love to create some fun treats with them.
i love all of these ideas! So creative! My son usually just eats eggs and sausage but I would love for him to start enjoying cereal!
Huh…with yogurt! That sounds really good.
Wow these are super cool ideas!! I really love these unique ideas!
Such creative, yummy ideas! I’m gonna try the one with toast 🙂
I am sure that my kids would love to put these on their ice cream. That sounds like a fun idea!
I am not saying that these do not look like fun. And my daughter would probably love them. Personally I am not a Lucky Charm Fan. It’s just way too sweet for me.
I love the idea of putting them on some toast. Brilliant!!
Lucky charms was my favorite! These are some fun ways to spice up the food for kids
Lucky Charms marshmellows are one of my guilty pleasures! They make such a cute drink topping – thanks for this great idea!
I have really had a lot about lucky charm but I have not tried any of it before.
Love these creative ideas. My kids haven’t tried lucky charms, i think they will love the product!

It is so nice to be able to make breakfast that the kids will love. I think these are great ideas! Breakfast is more fun when you make it with the kids.
Fantastic ideas! I like to sprinkle Lucky Charms on my daughters yogurt to surprise her sometimes.
Great ideas! The breakfast in bed idea would be a great surprise for the kids.
I want to try breakfast in bed, but maybe I have to really rise earlier than the rest in the family. I’m sure hubby and the kids will love that idea since we have never done that before.

These are great ideas, and very creative! Somehow my food creativity happens at night, not in the morning LOL
Who doesn’t love Lucky Charms. These are super fun ideas!
I saw Lucky Charms used in a milk drink for adults recently! You can definitely do so much with your cereal!
So many fun options for breakfast. I bet my kids would love a Lucky Charms smoothie!
I love Lucky Charms!! and i def love to mix it up with my yogurt or oat meal
Lucky Charms in a smoothie is absolutely brilliant. I LOVED Lucky Charms as a child. Now as an adult I tend to buy just cereal marshmallows and skip the cereal all together.
Oh yum, I’d love this smoothie! We’ve always been fans of Lucky Charms. It’s so delicious!
I love Lucky Charms cereal. I used to eat it all the time when the kids were little. I always justified it as buying it for them.
Great ideas, using Lucky Charms cereal! They’re not just for eating out of a bowl anymore, like I used to do on Saturday mornings, watching cartoons!
Lucky Charms over jelly on toast looks delicious. I would have never thought to try it together. Breakfast time is always a good time to connect with the kids.
I love just putting the cereal in a dish and snacking all day! You can also make cereal bars with lucky charms. SOOO yummy
Yes! I love the idea of sprinkling it on a smoothie. Lucky Charms is a favorite in our household!
Lucky Charms are by far my son’s favourite cereals, but they are so expensive in the UK.
Who doesn’t love spotting Lucky Charms with or in their breakfast? Yum!
Aww, these are clever! I like Lucky Charms a lot and I think it would be fun to try some new breakfast ideas using them.
This is still my favourite breakfast cereal to date. I love the marshmallows.
Whenever we buy lucky charms, we’re always left with the cereal and not the marshmallows. Methinks that my children are trying to tell me something for sure. I thought I saw somewhere that they offer an entire box of marshmallows now. I’ll have to check it out and use it on top of cupcakes like you suggest, without wasting the rest of the cereal!
I love taking late starts from time to time. It makes it feel more relaxed.
A Lucky Charms smoothie?!?! That sounds amazing! I bet my daughter would love that!
I have not tried lucky charms before and interesting you can have them on jelly and smoothie if you wish.

I think a Lucky Charms Smoothie sounds fun! I will have to try that for my kids!

These are great ideas! they look so yummy! so creative! true that my breakfast are always so boring! xx corinne
Lucky Charms is a childhood favorite. As an adult it’s such a special nostalgic treat . I love the addition of these tasty pieces of Lucky Charms to smoothies. Yum, yum!
Those all look so yummy! I cannot get enough Lucky Charms, so I know I’d love these.
I’ve never thought of doing anything with cereal besides throwing it in a bowl with milk. These are all brilliant and creative ideas!
Lucky Charms are my all time favorite cereal! I feel like I am pampering myself when I buy and eat them!
What some great breakfast ideas, I love the smoothie idea myself that would be such a simple breakfast to make and enjoy.
These are awesome ideas! Kids sometimes don’t like eating breakfast at all and it’s good to make it interesting for them. I’m sure a lot of parents will appreciate this post.
Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle
These are all great ideas. My only problem with this is that I might not be able to resist eating them long enough to actually make any of these! LOL
Lucky Charm on its own is definitely a colorful and tasty breakfast experience for kids. It would be nice to vary it with other food and presentation to keep the kids excited.
I haven’t had Lucky Charms in a long time! This post shows some really creative ways to enjoy them. I’ll have to go buy a box.
I don’t think I’ve had them since I was a kid, I really want to have some now so I can try out these ideas.
My children would be in heaven these ideas! Lucky Charms are their favorite cereal!
I’ve never really thought about doing Lucky charms anyway but in a bowl with milk. I know my kiddo would love creative different ways of using those marshmallows. Emily thought of a good way yet but you have some good ideas right here.
Kristen @ My 3 Little Kittens
Who knew that Lucky Charms were so diverse! Lucky Charms on toast just about blew my mind!!!!!
My kids love cereal but I don’t think we have tried Lucky Charms yet. That smoothie sure looks good.
Lucky Charms never last in our house. It is the first cereal to be eaten when we buy it. I like the idea of using it to top ice cream with.
Whenever the grandkids come over for a sleepover, I stock up on Lucky Charms. It’s their favorite cereal. They normally eat it with milk or just straight up. I like your ideas for
a little different breakfast. Any way you eat them, they’re magically delicious!
What creative ideas! I always get bored of my normal breakfast routines and this is a great way to get it spruced up!
Talk of lucky charms and I drool over it. I never forget those gems and buy it every other time when I feel to go for a refresh…

These are very creative ideas for breakfast! I used to love Lucky Charms as a kid.
Breakfast is the most important meal for me and even am busy, I make sure to have my breakfast time. I don’t breakfast to be in a hurry. I want to enjoy it every bite.
I can remember loving Lucky Charms as a kid! Of course, the marshmallows were the best part and now I hear you can buy just the marshmallows! I can also remember eating bars made with Lucky Charms.
I honestly cannot remember the last time that I had lucky charms. I bet m y kiddos would like any of these ideas.

Oh man, I would love some lucky charms. And having them with some bread and jam sounds AMAZING.
I have never thought of putting cereal on my toast or in my smoothies. Great ways to switch it up!
My kids love Lucky Charms. It’s the most requested cereal in my house.
What creative ideas! I usually only think to eat cereal with milk but there’s heaps of ways you can do it!
My ten year old has been waking up not hungry and then he forgets to eat breakfast. I need to entice him with that smoothie.
