Tips for creating you own toast art.
- Keep it simple – look for the shapes that naturally occur in fruit or veggies. The flower basically made itself.
- Contrast is king, a background that’s light needs a dark front and vice versa. Think Vegemite background with cheese in front – perfect!
- I haven’t used them for these creations but cookie cutters are your best friend. You could use little flower ones to make a garden, chuck an apple duck on peanut butter sanga or fancy up a starry night with Vegemite and cheese.
- Set the kids up and tell them to get making, they’re so much more visual and creative than us. Best craft activity ever! They create, get a meal and literally eat the mess up when they’re finished.
- Feel free to share your creations on Instagram using the hashtag #CHILDtoastart so we can post our faves.
As a side note, I don’t know if you guys have this problem at home, but it’s pretty common for kids not to like foods that are combined. You know? Give them some chicken, veggies, sauce to dip in and a side of pasta and they’ll eat it. Stir it up together and no deal.
It might not be a veggie pasta dish, but the fact that on toast, the foods are actually permitted to touch each other is a super win. Peanut butter and strawberry together is a nice, interesting combo and that’s an awesome thing for their palate to experience. But seriously, I had to pick off the butterfly’s liquorice antenna. No deal.
