Rainbow Toast

Little Red Hen Big BookThis week we read The Little Red Hen by Byron Barton. After reading the book, we sang a poem about baking bread from Hubbard's Cupboard
For our art project, we painted toast.

Just mix some food coloring and water or milk.

Get a clean paintbrush and paint some toast. 

If you are often inclined to eat your canvas, toast painting is the perfect medium for you!

This could make a perfect St. Patrick's Day breakfast. Here's hoping you find the pot of gold at the end of your rainbow toast :)
Another fun Little Red Hen book is The Little Red Hen Bakes a Pizza
The Little Red Hen (Makes a Pizza)
And I also love the illustrations in this traditional tale of The Little Red Hen by Jerry Pinkney.

  1. We did rainbow toast yesterday as well - it was quite popular.

  2. I love watching babies try to eat big pieces of something. Cute stuff!

  3. I bet painting toast was fun!!! :-)

    How sweet!

    (thank you for linking up to Kids Get Crafty - love all the different ideas you guys have!!)

  4. Painting toast looks like fun! We will need to try it.

    Thanks for linking to Read.Explore.Learn.

  5. YUM! Thanks for sharing your post on my rainbow linky:)

  6. I love the painting on toast idea! I've seen painting on cookies too! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! Bluebird's Nest is a great pop up at the end, but what makes it so unique is that the nest gets built with real yarn little by little until you get to the end of the book and it is finished!

  7. This is such a fun idea! I am a new follower and I would love if you would link it up to my Made by Little Hands Monday Linky party!
    Thanks so much!

  8. Love these. We have done paiting on cookies here
