Mardi Gras At Home!

"Laissez les Bon Temps Rouler"

 Let the Good Times Roll is a saying that we celebrate most in the South every Spring.  Bring on the Mardi Gras Parades, Food, Music, & Bright colors!!  This is one of the times I really miss home, because we always miss out on Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) celebrations.  I've learned to bring the holiday into our home wherever we are stationed!  Last year, I even discovered authentic King Cake mix sold on Amazon! (winning) Want to bring the party home? Read on for recipes, music & more!

(If you're near New Orleans, this also has the parade schedule or current plans!)

So how to we incorporate this fun Holiday into our Homeschool? We usually just hang beads around with Mardi Gras colors and make a King Cake. However this year, I searched for some fun books & other things to add to our Morning Basket/Study Time. You can mix this into a full Unit Study if you wish!
