Father's Day is around the corner, and nothing says "I love you, Dad" quite like painted toast. I'm being entirely literal here. The way I see it, cake shouldn't be the only food that we get to write on.
Last year I discovered this activity in an especially riveting issue of Highlights Magazine. It was win-win all around. My girls appreciated that I was letting them paint at 7:00 in the morning. My husband appreciated that he was still in bed at 7:00 in the morning. I appreciated that I already owned all of the required supplies so I wouldn't need to run to Wal-Mart at 7:00 in the morning.
It's extremely simple:
- Pour one tablespoon of milk into a small bowl.
- Add a few drops of food coloring.
- Grab a clean paintbrush and paint away.
Say it with flowers? Nah. Say it with toast.
