Breakfast Menu Cards for Toddlers and Preschoolers

These breakfast menu cards for toddlers and preschoolers totally changed our morning routine- for the better! 

Mornings are the most rushed part of the day in our house…is it that way for you too? Getting everyone out of bed, dressed, fed, and out the door on time makes me feel like a superhero.
