Happy Mardi Gras!!!

Today we talked about Mardi Gras and all the fun things that people do on this day. We discussed how in New Orleans they have a special carnival that is celebrated each year called Mardi Gras, also referred to as Fat Tuesday. People wear costumes, beads, and mask and celebrate with a big parade, special parties, and even a ball. We looked at pictures of floats, marching bands, listened to music, and took turns wearing Mardi Gras masks. Then we had a chance to make our own mask. At the end of the day the Girl Scouts are having a parade for the children, I can't wait!

Mardi Gras Mask. The children traced their hands and cut them out. We glued it all together and finshed them off with feathers and sequence.

Everyone taking a turn wearing a Mardi Gras Mask.
