What’s better than a great Valentine’s Day breakfast idea? A great Valentine’s Day breakfast idea that will keep the kids entertained as they make it! Even without any kids, this is still fun for Valentine’s Day:
Before we started, Leah said she wanted to paint and she wanted me to bake a cake (I’ll get right on that). This activity has a little bit of both, so it actually worked out perfectly! She was really into the little bit of “baking” involved (as in watching the toaster oven).
So how do you do it? It’s pretty simple!
Use a heart cookie cutter to mark the shape of a heart into a slice of bread. Be careful not to completely cut through the bread. (Although, heart shaped coloured toast would actually be pretty fun too!)
Take a little bit of milk, maybe 2-3 tablespoons, and add 3 or 4 drops of red food colouring until you get the shade you want:
Use a paint brush to paint the heart red with the dyed milk:
Toast it in the toaster oven:
Isn’t this a cute way to say I-love-you at breakfast on Valentine’s day?
If it’s not Valentine’s Day, Share & Remember has a different version of this activity where you can paint the entire piece of bread rainbow colours for some extra fun.
Of course Leah painted her entire piece of toast anyway, but oh well. She still had a great time!
