Mardi Gras Festivities


Found in: crafts & cooking; creative design & composition; games; Mardi Gras carnival

When Mardi Gras rolls around, I have a big celebration in class. The students make masks, beaded necklaces and floats out of shoeboxes. They put what they want on the shoebox floats. Most use tissue papers and scraps of material to make elaborate floats. Then we have a mini parade and games in which people swap and win beads. We also do a small activity like the king cake. I make cupcakes and stick a token in one of them. The person who gets that cupcake gets to be king/queen for the day. This is a big hit.
