I will admit that it’s harder to find kids’ crafts that get my toddler engaged than it is to find good ones for her pre-school-aged sister. Lucy just doesn’t have the dexterity or attention span for a lot of kids crafts. Bread painting, however, was interesting enough for her to enjoy and short enough for her to…not stop enjoying, I guess. I love how you can have this craft lead right into snack time, too!
What You Need for Toddler Bread Painting
- Food coloring
- Paint brushes
Once we had all the colors we wanted, I put the bread in the toaster, and she got to eat her creation. (With some peanut butter added for good measure…and a source of protein.)
What I Learned the Hard Way: You may not want to make too much edible “paint.” Our bread ended up so soggy in the middle that I had to toast it extra long in an attempt to dry it out before serving it.
