    Yes both do, they are 5 and 8. Mainly only cereal but the 8yo is learning to make toast but still waits for us to supervise him.

    My DD is 5 and I have never let her get her own breakfast. I'm sure she can and I no she wants to but my mornings are rushed enough as it without having to clean up her. Sounds like it's time for me to start letting her be a bit more independent.

    They make their own choc milk and can get cereal (6 and 9yo) but look out if I ask my 9yo to sort out his own toast!!Its like I ask him to bake his own bread! he can get out toaster,put bread in but heaven forbid actually putting a spread on his toast!! even my 6yo could do it!!!
    ETA He will willing make me a coffee....no drama.But toast?!!? NO!!

    Miss 2.5 yo likes to make cereal for her and her brother aged 7 so I put 2 cups of milk in the fridge at night and in the morning she will get out 2 weetbix each, put them in bowls, get spoons and pour the milk from each cup into the bowls. If she spills anything she will get a wet wipe and clean it up. Dd will also help prep the eggs when I make scrambled eggs or beat the pancake mix on weekends and put peanut butter on her toast. Ds likes his sister making his breakfast and he will help her get dressed, do her teeth or prep her drink bottle for daycare. I don't let either of them make toast but probably would if ds wasn't so frightened of being burnt!
