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.
- white bread
- food colouring
We started by combining a few drops of food colouring with about 1/4 cup of milk (we made 4 different colours of milk paint).
Then I gave my boys each two pieces of white bread and a clean paintbrush, and let their inner artists take it from there!
They both had a lot of fun painting their bread for lunch.
The next step was to toast the bread, but apparently little B couldn’t wait to try his! Haha! BUSTED!
I managed to convince him that it would taste even better once it was toasted with a bit of butter. When the toast popped up, the colours appeared even more vibrant than before.
All it took was a bit of colour, and some budding artists, to turn an otherwise boring lunch into something unique and fabulous!
Thanks for stopping by!
