{DIY} DIA DE LOS MUERTOS FONDANT & MARSHMALLOW CALAVERA TOPPERS!

Dia De Los Muertos Fondant Toppers2_TheMarshmallowStudio

My boys are obsessed with Halloween. Whether it’s because of the thought of being allowed to get a major sugar rush all in one day or all the fun and spooky decorations in every store we walk in to, they love it! I think Halloween is cool but I’m more of a Dia De Los Muertos person. I remember growing up in Mexico celebrating this beautiful holiday with delicious bread, traditional clay dishes, flowers and artisan crafts.

Dia De Los Muertos (or Day Of The Dead as it’s known in the United States) is a Mexican holiday in which friends and family gather together to pray for and remember their deceased loved ones. Traditionally the celebration takes place October 31st- November 2nd. People build private altars called ofrendas, honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and favorite foods and beverages of the departed. They also visit their graves and leave some of these as gifts along with a few possessions of the deceased.

SPOOKY-LICIOUS HALLOWEEN PARTY FOR KIDS + GIVEAWAY

Halloween entertaining with KRAFT Giveaway

Halloween is such a fun holiday for kids and adults alike. Above is a photo from last year’s Halloween. My family and I dressed up as the s’mores family. I made the costumes from felt! My boys love getting dressed up and playing pretend. They also enjoy helping me cook and bake when I’m making pumpkin recipes, ghoulish treats and other Halloween themed goodies. I believe it’s very important to get them involved in the kitchen so they can learn to be independent, improve their fine motor skills, as well as expand their cause and effect comprehension. It’s a win-win; they help me, they learn and they have fun!

Halloween entertaining with KRAFT Giveaway

I recently received a wonderful package filled with awesome goodies at no cost to me from my friends at KRAFT Recipes. The sweetest part of it was that I would also be able to give one away to a lucky reader of my blog. I love when I get to spread the love and share great products I enjoy with you all. Here’s a list of the cool products that I received and will be included in the giveaway package:

HAPPY HALLOWEEN MARSHMALLOW PUMPKIN

During my son’s preschool teacher-parent conference his teachers asked me what did a “marshmallow designer” do?? They were intrigued after seeing my occupation listed on the school records. I smiled and said “I make all kinds of stuff with marshmallows!” That only seemed to have fueled their curiosity even more. They immediately asked me if I’d like to bring in something to their upcoming Halloween party. Well you guys know me…. I love challenges and having an excuse to play with marshmallows :)
