Let me see if I can brainstorm a bit on this idea...haven't really tried 
it (yet), but I think it would probably work:

I would probably start with some kind of sweet bread dough, and 
add blueberries.  If you get canned blueberries there is usually lots 
of juice, and you can just dump that in for part of the liquid to make 
it really blue.  Probably even fresh blueberries would have enough 
juice in them to make areas of intense blue -- they usually do in 
muffins, so I don't see how it would be too much different for bread.  
Depends on how much blue you want throughout.

Does your son like Smurfs...?    :)    You can call it Smurf bread!!

Hope that helps to start the brainstorming,
