These 5 Christmas Breakfast ideas are equal parts cute, tasty, and of course easy to make! These are perfect for a holiday breakfast that kids will love or make it into a holiday tradition of letting the kids help you. These fun Christmas themed Cinnamon Rolls also make a fun addition to a holiday brunch or pot luck.
If your kids are like mine, they start talking about Christmas in about August. So when we do finally get close to the holidays we hit the ground running and try to fit in all the fun and memories that we can. One of our favorite traditions is making fun breakfasts leading up to Christmas!
I like to do a few of these different Cinnamon Rolls and let the kids help pick out which ones they want to make. Since all of these are so simple, it makes a perfect project for them to help with and they get a kick out of getting to use the frosting and sprinkles all by themselves. But do keep the vacuum handy ha!
On Christmas Eve each year it is our tradition to invite friends over for a Christmas brunch. We make my favorite breakfast casserole and then have some fun stuff like cinnamon rolls for the kids too. I haven’t been brave enough to let them decorate these at the brunch yet, but maybe in a few years when they get a bit older (and less messy… is that ever going to happen?!)
Here are the 5 ideas I have for you to have fun the whole holiday season.
Christmas Breakfast Ideas
Cinnamon Roll Santa
What is Christmas with out the jolly red guy? These cinnamon rolls are super simple to make and have some serious cute factor to them! Click here for full directions for Cinnamon Roll Santa.
Cinnamon Roll Christmas Trees
These are such a fun way to reconfigure the cinnamon rolls! Just peel them apart and put them back together as trees. My kids favorite part is using our sprinkle stash as ornaments to decorate their tree! Click here for full directions for Cinnamon Roll Christmas Trees.
Cinnamon Roll Reindeer
Now if these aren’t just the cutest, then I don’t know what is! I love that these bake just as-is from the package and then with a few little extras they are transformed into Santa’s reindeer. This is probably the quickest breakfast on the list. Click here for full directions for Cinnamon Roll Reindeer.
Cinnamon Roll Snowmen
You can’t leave Frosty out of the party! Cinnamon rolls are transformed into an adorable snowman just the help of some pretzel arms and a few chocolate chips. This is another fun one to let the kids get creative with giving their snowman a face. You can even get more into the spirit by adding a scarf, hat, or anything else you and your kids can come up with. Click here for full directions for Cinnamon Roll Snowman.
Cinnamon Roll Wreaths
The last holiday breakfast on my list are these simple, but beautiful cinnamon roll wreaths. All you do to make these is use a cookie cutter to cut a circle from the middle of each roll then use scissors to clip around the edges to make it have texture. Bake as directed, reducing the cook time by 1-2 minutes. Dye the icing green using food coloring, then frost the cinnamon rolls and add sprinkles. I got my Holly and Berries sprinkles at Walmart.
I hope this leaves you inspired to make some fun memories with the family! If you get a chance to make one (or all!) of these, I would love it if you would leave me a message in the comments or tag me in a pic on your Facebook or Instagram stories @easyfamilyrecipes. It makes me so happy to see others enjoying the ideas from the blog!
