    I LOVE how teaching becomes more fun in October. I enjoy exposing my kids to other cultures, so we do Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) from Mexico and other Latin American countries. The kids love making this edible "tombstone" craft, and it would be appropriate for Halloween too!

    box of graham crackers
    package of fudge covered square graham crackers
    mellocreme pumpkins
    bag of caramels (cubes)
    shredded coconut (died green)
    can of chocolate frosting

    Use a graham cracker sheet as a base. "Glue" one fudge covered cracker (standing up perpendicular) on the plain graham cracker using chocolate frosting. Prop the "tombstone" up from the back using a caramel cube. "Glue" down a mellowcreme pumpkin at the base of the front of the tombstone using more icing. Smear a little extra icing in the front of the tombstone and sprinkle the green coconut on top. They are really cute once they're assembled, and it's funny to see how some students can't wait to devour their creation, while others preserve theirs like it's a true work of art!
