Toast Pictures!

A Recipe for Toast Pictures – J McLeman May 2020

! - You will need Adult Help and Supervision for this lesson ! 

! - Do NOT try this on your own! 

! - You MUST have an adult to help you if you fancy trying this !

 

Hello Children,

This lesson is about making pictures with BREAD and SPAGHETTI PASTA.

You will need some WHITE BREAD, and some cooked flexible Spaghetti, (maybe 8 strands). Ask an Adult to take them out of the hot water, and place them on a dinner plate, or wide bowl, to cool down.

You will also need a grill and grill-pan, and some scissors.

Take a cooked, cooled, flexible strand of spaghetti, and place it on a piece of bread, in a shape you like – swirls, a heart, wiggles, stripes, a smiley face – you decide.  You can snip the spaghetti shorter with scissors.

Place all the pieces of spaghetti bread onto the wire rack in the grill-pan.

! - ADULT HELP NEEDED! – Ask your Adults at home if they could PLEASE heat up the grill. You can ONLY do this when they are ready to help you – you might have to wait…

! - Ask them to Please Place the grill pan with the spaghetti bread, under the hot grill. STAND WELL BACK from the heat!

! - ASK your Adult family member to PLEASE Remove the grill-pan from the grill. When the bread is nicely toasted, all around the spaghetti, ask the Adult to then take it out from the grill. STAND WELL BACK!

! – Ask the Adult to Please TURN OFF THE GRILL!

! - WAIT until the toast is cooler, and peel off the spaghetti to reveal your white picture.

(The spaghetti can be placed back into a pan/bowl of warm water, to make it flexible again, for another Toast Picture)

Take to the table and admire your Artwork, spread with your favourite topping and enjoy! Photos of your picture before the spread is applied would be good, and then another with you eating it!!

Take good care when doing this lesson – it will make it more fun for everyone if you all go slowly and work carefully. If this becomes stressy, just stop this lesson and do something else. Toast pictures can be made another day. Toast pictures are meant to be fun – really! 

All good wishes,

Ms J. McLeman
