Before I was a writer for Awana, I directed our church preschool for several years.
While taking one of the classes in order to get my early childhood teaching credentials, I learned how to paint toast. (The joys of being a preschool teacher!)
I thought it would be a fun thing to share and maybe something you’d like to do with your kids for Valentine’s Day. Be creative! You can draw pictures and/or write messages.
Paint brush (if you do not have new, clean paint brushes, you can use a basting brush)
Bread (however many slices you want). This will work with any kind of bread, but obviously shows up best on a lighter texture
What to do:
Pour a small amount of milk in each cup (depending on how many colors you desire).
Mix food coloring into the milk.
With the brush, paint on the bread.
Let dry for a few minutes and then toast and you will have painted toast!
This is a safe project for kids to do themselves or for you to do for them as a surprise!
You can make any day special by writing “Good morning” on your child’s toast.
