Children's book, bread, milk, liquid food coloring, Q-tips, and a toaster.
Read a book with your child. In a small cup, mix 1/4 cup of milk with a few drops of food coloring. Use a Q-tip to paint the colored milk onto a piece of bread. Ask your child to paint their favorite part of the story or their favorite character. You can mix several different colors of milk to make a more colorful piece of bread. When you are finished painting, toast the bread in a toaster and watch the colors become more vibrant on the toast. Be sure and ask your child to verbalize what is in their picture. This activity helps to develop language and comprehension skills.
