If dad dabbles in sweet and savoury pairings, this little delight will get his tastebuds dancing. Kids adore using cookie cutters, so get them on heart-making duty, and they can spread the jam as well. (via All that’s Jas)

Make ‘mancakes’

Move over pancakes, we’ve got a new contender for the best Father’s Day breakfast – say hello to ‘mancakes’. Just like regular pancakes, only shaped into dad-related things. It might be a tie, tools, a moustache, a football, whatever dad’s into. You do the pancake making, the kids can do the decorating. (via I Love My Disorganized Life)

Breakfast in a bun

Who needs plates when you could pop everything in a bun? These breakfast sliders are filled with all dads favourites and ready to devour and the kids will love creating their own mini-masterpiece. (via The Kitchn)

We heart bacon

A word of warning – make a bucketload of these because the kids are going to gobble them up too. What greater thing is there than bacon? Perhaps bacon shaped into a love heart. Bless. All this takes is shaping the bacon into a love heart, skewering it with toothpicks and baking it in the oven. (via In The Know Mom)

Fancy French toast

Quick cups

Or you could just buy uniced cupcakes, top with bought waffles and get the kids to decorate them with yoghurt, Nutella and berries. Simple. (via Woman’s Day)
