Edible paint can be mixed up in minutes using an easy 2 ingredient recipe. Kids from toddlers and preschoolers up to much much older kids will love this rainbow craft idea!! So much fun!
You will need:

We used liquid food colouring when we make our firework toast you want to compare the two.
How to make edible paint
To make edible milk paint begin by pouring a small amount of milk into several bowls. Add a tiny amount of food colouring to each bowl and stir. Thats it!!!!! You are now ready to get painting!
We mixed up blue, red, green, orange, purple and yellow milk paints. I painted strips of each colour to paint a rainbow. Harry decided he wanted to have rainbow coloured blobs.
When we had finished painting our rainbow designs we popped our bread in the toaster for a minute or two.
Harry told me the rainbow tasted yummy! Its amazing how adding bit of colour can make bread suddenly seem exciting.
What exciting rainbow designs will you come up with?
