Here’s another toddler activity.

Bread Painting

I think I had just as much fun doing this as my kid did.  This was really easy and I didn’t have to go buy anything I had everything on hand.  And is a great way to use up stale bread.

what you need:

white bread


food dye

paint brushes

Just set out some place-mats or newspaper to contain the mess.  lay out your bread.  add a couple drops of food dye to a small amount of milk, as many colors as you like.  Grab your paint brush and go to town!


And the best part about this activity is you can eat it!

My little guy had fun and enjoy this but he was done after 5 minutes and just stared eating the bread.  This did not really keep him busy for long but was a great distraction and snack.
