This activity works beautifully when a second adult is in the class. It gives me an opportunity to be at the snack table monitoring, asking questions and recording observations. The trail mix rebus is on the table for the children to follow instructions. I can also read it as a book during Circle Time.
This recipe is for Ghost Toast. I found this recipe in a book a few years ago and created a rebus for my class to make the Ghost Toast during our Halloween week. I recently ran across a Haunted House rebus book to compliment our Ghost Toast.
Both rebus recipes are different but use the same concept. I created both with the idea that they had to be easy to transport and long lasting. The Ghost Toast rebus was made with regular sized pieces of construction paper taped together. Once they went through the laminator I was able to bend them back and forth (accordion style) to travel easily. I use heavy lamination and they have both lasted longer than 5 years!
