Edible Rainbow Art Activity

Channel your preschoolers inner “foodie” by making rainbow toast with edible paint!

To create an edible masterpiece for a fun and healthy breakfast, snack or sandwich – all you will need is milk, bread, food coloring & a little creativity!

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1.5 oz. of Vitamin-D Milk, divided into 6 cups
  • Food coloring (red, blue, yellow & any other colors you may want!)
  • 8 slices of wheat or white bread

Activity Instructions:

  • Pour 1/4 cup milk into each of  6 cups.
  • Add 3 drops red coloring to one cup, 3 drops blue coloring into a second cup, 3 drops yellow coloring into a third cup, 3 drops red and 3 drops blue into a fourth cup to make purple, 3 drops red and 3 drops yellow to make orange, and 3 drops blue and 3 drops yellow to make green.
  • Pro Tip: when using the dye, utilize this time to practice numbers & counting!
  • Stir each cup until vibrant color appears.
  • Using a Q-tip or clean paint brush, “paint” one side of a slice of untoasted bread.
  • Repeat with remaining bread.
  • Once one side of bread has been painted, cook in a toaster on medium heat or in the oven at 350 degrees F for 6-8 minutes.
