Who says you can't play with your food?!

Noah and I spend a lot of time creating together in the studio and in the kitchen. When we stumbled upon an activity for “Painted Toast” we had to try it out! It was super simple and Noah had a blast.

Who says you can’t play with your food – or eat your paint?

This activity came from The Toddler’s Busy Book by Trish Kuffner. (page 105 to be precise.)

Painted Toast

2 tbs milk (or non dairy milk)
food coloring
clean paintbrushes
sliced bread

Mix the milk with a few drops of food coloring in a small cup or container. Use a paintbrush to paint designs or faces on the bread. Then toast the bread, butter it and eat it, or use it to make a sandwich.

Blue tongue warning: Noah slathered the “paint” on pretty thick and ended up with a blue tongue. Just thought I should give you a heads up 🙂


*Creative Cup note: We save cleaned out yogurt containers to use for art projects. They are perfect for holding paint, water, glue, & small bits like pom poms or glitter.

This was such a simple and fun project. Why not try it out (even if you don’t have kids)?


Love & Blessings,
