Mardi Gras is tomorrow, also known as Fat Tuesday. So we have let the kids make masks for the party. We have taken posterboard, or funfoam and cut a simple mask shape and eye holes. Then I have let the kids use feathers, glitter glue, beads in the bright colors of Mardi Gras and glue them on. We sometimes have donuts for breakfast because in some religions during Lent they did not have sugar and items made with yeast. So yes we eat poorly on Fat Tuesday. But it is a treat around here and Robert usually wears his brightly colored fleece hat that has 2 points on it, just to be silly!
