Is your child into snacks? 

If you answered yes to these questions then consider this recipe my 10-minute gift to you. Seriously, get the kiddos set up and let them channel their inner artist and foodie while you close your eyes, make a list, cross items off your list, online shop, check Facebook…you get the idea! Or, join in because I think I had just as much fun – if not more fun – than the girls making this edible paint and colorful toast.

Turn Toast Into a Teaching Tool

We’re all playing teacher these days so use this recipe as a teaching tool. Thanks to Mrs. Buttrey’s, Frances’s Kindergarten teacher, for inspiring this recipe.

Here are a few ideas:

  • Discuss fractions while dividing milk into cups.
  • Discuss role of milk in the body. 
  • Practice counting to 3 (for our little kiddos) while dropping colors into milk.
  • Discuss primary and secondary colors while making “edible paint.”
  • Discuss role of grains in the body. 
  • Connect toast painting with a topic they are learning about in school (ie. nature, bird, bunny, etc.).
  • Allow children to set the thermometer on the oven.
