Kids will LOVE this craft while you are making breakfast. I used to do this with my son when he was little and now that he’s 10 I wasn’t sure if it would be a cool thing to do especially when he had 2 friends over for a sleepover. Turns out they said it was so cool and wanted to do more. You can serve it up as toast for breakfast or have them paint some bread and make grilled cheese out of it too. Such a fun thing to do for the whole family!

“Good Zombie” Toast

8 tablespoons milk
Red, green, purple and orange food coloring
Sliced white bread
Pour 2 tablespoons of milk into each of 4 small bowls.
Pour 3 drops of each food coloring into its own bowl of milk. Add more food coloring to reach your desired colors. Stir gently until the color is mixed through.
Use a small arts or watercolor paintbrush to paint a pattern or picture on one side of the sliced bread with the colored milks.
Toast the painted bread in a toaster or toaster oven. Then butter the toast and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, or any other desired topping, and serve warm.
