Rainbow Milk Toast

All you need for this activity is bread (any kind will do – white bread, wheat bread, nut bread, fresh bread, sourdough bread – you pick your kids favorite bread), some small dishes filled with sweetened condensed milk, and food coloring. (If you are staying away from artificial dyes, I found you can buy natural food coloring using natural ingredients derived by fruits and vegetables)

Start by mixing sweetened condensed milk and food coloring in little bowls. Using a clean paint brush or pastry brush kids paint their bread to make rainbows or pictures. Next, blot the bread with a paper towel to remove any excess “paint” so you don’t make a mess in your toaster.

Now pop your painted bread in the toaster. This step is optional, you can just have milk bread if you like, but we enjoyed ours toasted. It was super yummy, pretty, and such a fun rainbow activity for the whole family. It is so easy and quick! It took like 5 minutes!

Note: We did not have any paint get in our toaster; I think blotting the bread with a paper towel is the success. When it comes out it may be slightly moist in some areas, that’s okay. So yummy!

It was as yummy as it was pretty!
