Edible Milk Homemade Paint Recipe
Another favorite St. Patrick's Day tradition in our house is making rainbow toast. Kids love to play with their food, and this is the one time it's okay! To make rainbow toast you need to make milk paint. Milk paint is one of the most basic homemade paint recipes. You probably have all you need to make it in your kitchen right now.
How to Make Milk Paint for Rainbow Toast
Directions: Add several drops of food coloring to milk and stir. I mixed red and yellow to make orange and blue and red to make purple. JZ (6) helped with the color mixing and getting the shades just right.
Set out the supplies, and invite your children to get creative.
Tank (25 months) felt the need to taste test his bread in between adding each color.
Peanut (25 months) painted the longest. He asked for several pieces of bread and colored in every white area.
Just like his twin, Peanut felt the need to sample his artwork often.
JZ requested red and blue milk paint, and he made patriotic toast.
Once the boys were happy with their designs I popped them in the toaster, and then we ate our artwork. This edible milk paint recipe is just one of our favorite homemade paints.
