Countdown until Halloween part 1

Time is ticking many of you are looking for cool Halloween ideas....

I've been known to be the Queen of Halloween at my school....that is until we stopped having Halloween dances and my stint of doing the food for many years ceased forever. Yes, our principal thinks that Halloween is culturally insensitive. It is sad to see a kid tradition is removed because of the ignorance of what it really is. Confused with All Saints Day, All Hallow's Eve or even Los Dias de los muertos....let's be for real's a day when the kids get candy. They live for this stuff. So did we.

Regardless, we are a culture of many countries of origin and many of us wear green on St. Patrick's Day even though we aren't Irish. We may go out for some enchiladas and down a beer on Cinco de Mayo. Or not. It's our choice to participate in whatever cultural celebration comes our way. Funny a school we do not dress for Halloween, nor have a Halloween due to possibly offending those who do not 'participate' in Halloween but I was told I could do my Halloween foods in my classes if I so desired. What the heck?

Anyway, off my soap box and onto some fun stuff for you to peruse.....

Since I have many Halloween recipes and pictures of the stuff I've made in the past on my school site, I am not going to reinvent the wheel and just give you a link to one page of my site every couple of days. Please keep in mind some of these creations were 'kid made' as opposed to 'teacher made.'

More pages of Halloween ideas are to come, if you don't cheat and go through my web page on my school site. LOL. When we make some new stuff in my classes I will add those later!
