OK, so this is totally not my idea. My friend, Leah, posted a photo of her daughter eating “Painted Toast” yesterday morning on Facebook (one of the reasons why I havn’t deleted it)… I immediately commented and asked her where in the world she got it. She told me that it was just milk and food coloring, in which Taylor painted on. She also mentioned that she found the idea on Pinterest. WHAT! Why have I not seen it… I’m addicted to Pinterest!!!
Within minutes (seconds really!), I had the cups, milk and food coloring out. HAH.
So simple. All you need is:
- food coloring
- milk (we used vanilla almond milk… I’m sure water would work too, maybe not as good though)
- paint brush
- bread and toaster
Just add a few drops of food coloring into the milk, hand your little a paint brush and let them have fun.
Pop the toast in the toaster to dry the masterpiece… add butter, and serve.
It was HIT. And I have to say that the vanilla almond milk added an extra yummy factor
A simple way to liven up breakfast a bit. I’m always searching for ways to make things fun for the kids, and this was a great way to turn the ordinary into EXTRAoridinary.
(Maybe painted hearts for a V-Day breakfast in bed for the lover)
Adelyn has been a pretty picky eater lately. She’s been sick, so getting her to eat is like pulling teeth! I knew she’d have a blast with this… and did she ever. We might just have to make a habit out of painting toast on Sundays! Because she CHOWED it! Hmm… I wonder what else we could paint that she would eat?!
How do you get your picky eater to try new foods??
