Baked Eggs Tom and Jerry Style - 3 -6 year olds


I found a great breakfast recipe, where your kids can easily make. This recipe is suitable for children aged between 3 to 6 years - they can work on their own with little adult supervision. The recipe below is simple and easy to read and follow. You can increase the print size if you like.

Why would we ask our kids to prepare a meal?

1. Our kids will need to read the recipe

2. Our kids learn to follow instructions

3. Let them be creative with the recipe

4. Measuring and counting and estimating all in less than 15 minutes or so

5. Builds their self esteem and confidence, which is perhaps the strongest reason

I don’t bother asking my kids to clean up too much. It would take the fun out of the exercise for them. It must be gradual and with help, I think. That way, they will keep coming back!


Here is a neat recipe to help you surprise your mum and dad. Its breakfast – easy to do.

What you will need:

1. 1 Slice of ham/bacon/roast chicken/or any meat

2. 8 small spinach leaves (but you can change it if you want – you can use sweet corn, frozen peas, spring onion or any vegetable that you or your parents fancy)

3. 8 cherry tomatoes

4. 4 eggs

5. About a matchbox size of cheese

6. 4 slices of bread, toasted, buttered – for eating with your dish.

7. 1 adult to help you with the oven


Children’s scissors – any plastic one will do

Grater (but you need an adult for this) If not use your hands to get the cheese into little pieces
