Blogging school

  • Pin It



Today's post comes to you from the third-grade classroom of my younger son. (Yes, that's him above; yes, he's a little bigger than that now.) His class is learning about blogging and contributing to a class blog, so I thought it would be fun to do a little blogging project with them. It's a food blogging project, of course! They're going to tell you about their favorite Halloween recipes. We're using their super-secret code names to protect their privacy, by the way. Okay - ready?

Teacher's favorite recipe: Spider cupcakes
"I like this recipe because I am no longer scared of spiders. This one looks yummy!"

EA2's favorite recipe: Edible eyeballs
"I like this one because because it looks like a creepy mess."

AB3's favorite recipe: Bug juice
"I like this one because bugs are cool."

GC4's favorite recipe: Mini witch's brooms
"I like this one because witches are too big to fit on these brooms."

SF5's favorite recipe: Halloween cupcakes (check out the mummies!)
"I like this one because they look weird. They look sort of googly and funny."

I'm going to make sweet monster cupcakes for my son's class. They'll get a kick out of them. Have a great and safe Halloween all. One of our favorite Halloween 'treats' in Yakima, WA is the pumpkin patch that has a pumpkin cannon. It's great fun!

Such fun and creative recipes. My favorite Halloween recipe used to be chocolate pudding, gummy worms and crushed Oreos (dirt and worms). Gooey but fun to eat!

Kelley Mitchell said...

Oh my! So many great recipes. First I'll have to try the Mini Witche's Brooms that ES18 really likes.

Thanks for sharing!
