Cooking with Kids: Painted Toast

This is a project kids will love to make.  It’s an art and cooking activity that involves painting white bread slices with food coloring mixed in milk, then toast  ’em!

It’s a great idea for Father’s Day to surprise Dad with special designs or messages on his morning toast.


Painted Toast


1 ¼ cups of milk
Food coloring, 5 different colors (or 2 or 3)
White bread slices


  1. Fill 5 glasses (or 2 or 3, depending on how many colors you want to use) with a 1/4 cup of milk each.
  2. Then take your  food colorings and in each glass put 5 drops of food coloring in the milk and stir till color shows.
  3. Use a small paint brush and dip the brush into the food coloring. Then take your piece of bread and paint a face or picture of choice on it.
  4. Now place your bread into a toaster and wait till the bread is toasted.

    […] We just got back from another weeklong camping trip and, as a result, the food in our house is pretty sparse. I wanted to make lunch appear a little more exciting than it actually was, so I had to be a bit inventive with what we had on hand; that’s when I remembered the recipe for painted toast I had seen previously from The Foodies’ Kitchen.
