Rainbow Toast for St. Patrick’s Day

Wednesdays with Whitney

By Whitney Tang

Saint Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, which means that those sneaky leprechauns are on their way! Perhaps you can keep them from tearing through the house with a colorful snack which will catch their eye. This rainbow toast is a great distractor for those tiny green disasters, but it’s also a great after school snack for hungry little children.

Supplies

• Bread
• Milk
• Paint Brushes
• Food Dye

Directions

1. Mix a small amount of milk and a few drops of food dye in various little bowls. Be sure to make all the colors in the rainbow, or at least a few key ones. Don’t forget – ROY G. BIV (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet)

2. Let the kids paint their pieces of bread in all the colors of the rainbow. Be sure to use new paintbrushes or ones you only use for food.

3. Once a piece of bread is fully painted, place it in the toaster. The heat will bring out the colors and make your once soggy bread nice and crispy.

4. If your little ones decide not to leave the toast for the leprechauns, give them a brief history on Saint Patrick’s Day while they are munching away.
