Mardi Gras Parade
Decorations for the floats and masks, such as streamers, feathers and ribbons; beads and trinkets; a King Cake and red punch.
Everyone loves a parade, and Mardi Gras parades are a ton of fun! Have your kids and their friends design and make their own floats and masks. Paper plate masks and streamers on tricycles or wagons work very well. Buy some bead necklaces, little toys, and candy to throw to the crowd. Line up the kids on their "floats" and then take a trip around your neighborhood, throwing your treats to all your watchers. Once you've paraded around the neighborhood, invite everyone over for King Cake and punch. You never know -- you might just get a volunteer to host the next Mardi Gras parade.
