Rainbow Painted Toast Activity 

Once you have made your edible paint from milk and food colouring set it out on a table with a new paint brush for each colour. Make sure that you don't use paintbrushes that have previously been used for painting. 

Place a piece of bread on a plate and invite your child to come and do some bread painting! They can really used their imaginations. They could paint a rainbow, add dots, make marks or do a design of their own.
