Mardi Gras

Even though I didn't grow up in the South and have never been to a real Mardi Gras parade or celebration ... there is something about the festive colors and decorations, and all those beads and masks that just makes me want to do something special with my students to celebrate this traditional holiday.
I have a favorite art project that I always do with my students - no matter which grade I am teaching at the time. The projects always turn out wonderful and are a  real "show-stopper" when hung up around the classroom. I also play Cajun music as we work on the art and I pass out beads, a doubloon, and a mask to the children when they are finished.
 
This year, I decided to do more than just the art project. So, I created a Mardi Gras activity pack. The entire pack is available now in my TPT store.


However, you can grab a FREEBIE copy of my favorite activity from the pack HERE.
Just let me know you are snagging it!  Enjoy!

I can't wait for Tuesday!
