10 Tasty Treats Your Kids Can Whip Up During Spring Break
1. Breakfast Pancake Taco

Top it off with some whipped cream or pancake syrup and you have for yourself a tasty breakfast treat.
2. Krispies, Peanut Butter, and Chocolate Sam’wich
Turn a kiddie favorite into something new and exciting with chocolate or Nutella spread and Krispies. Think of it as a breakfast bowl without the bowl.
