Mardi Gras



One of the moms from the unschoooling group had planned a fun Mardi Gras celebration today, but she had to cancel due to sickness. So Taliesin, Nathanael, and I had a fun celebration of our own. We researched a little about Mardi Gras online, made some Mardi Gras art, and then made our version of a king cake. Okay, so a king cake is not really German chocolate with cream cheese frosting, powdered sugar, and left-over Valentine sprinkles. But it was fun, anyway; and yummy! :^) After our creative endeavors, we played at the park for a while, then off to karate class. It was a fun day!

You always do the most creative and fun things with your boys. I love the idea of a Mardi Gras celebration!

It was a lot of fun! Taliesin and Nathanael enjoyed it. I have to confess, though, I'm not the creative one. Taliesin and Nathanael are the creative ones. LOL. Before we began unschooling, I always said I wasn't creative enough to unschool. Unschoolers on various lists told me I didn't have to be. They were right!

How yummy! I don't know much about Mardi Gras. But a King cake sounds just fine to me! Glad you had some fun with that.

Very cool! Next year (or next festival time), try making shoebox floats! http://tinyurl.com/dhpcp6
will give you the basic idea, just make it your own. :)
