Dads love breakfast. Let him sleep in a little while you take care of breakfast. Go for a savory dish like bacon, egg and potatoes, or try making something sweet like French toast. If you’re new to cooking, get an older sibling or an adult to help you. Check out this Happy Camper Live breakfast in bed checklist.
