Saw this recipe when it turned up in the newsletter as a fun summer activity for kids. We used Q-tips instead of brushes and had lots of fun making tie-and-dye toast and rainbow toast. And actually we even managed to paint both sides of the bread slice before toasting it.

What a creative idea! A great way to get the children involed. Makes me wonder how this would come out with french toast or grilled cheese?

We had so much fun with painted toast this morning! Considering my boys are 4 1/2 and 2 1/2, I just used three colors (red, yellow, blue) and monitored the 'paint' usage. After they were toasted I spritzed them with butter spray and sprinkled on a little vanilla sugar to make them sparkle. The kids loved this, and it made breakfast a really fun project. FYI, don't let the kiddos paint BOTH sides of the bread. LOL. Thanks for sharing!
