I don't know about you, but to me it feels like holidays are flying by in a blur! I can not believe that Mardi Gras has come & gone -
I certainly didn't get to celebrate the way I wanted to with the Lil Divas
but we did get to make these super easy (& cute!)
Paper Plate Mardi Gras Masks &
Mardi Gras Inspired Pancakes!
Here are the super easy masks we made -
What You Need:
green, purple & yellow paints (we used watercolors)
(optional) decorations - sequins, glitter glue, etc...
What To Do:
1. Take 1 paper plate & cut it in half, using 1/2 plate for each mask.
2. Fold the 1/2 plate in half again and cut out eye holes.
4. Add feathers as desired.
5. Add any optional decorations (the Lil Divas used glitter glue)
6. Glue craft stick onto one side
Didn't they turn out cute?
The Lil Divas are used to my "festive" pancakes
so eating weird colors and shapes, isn't new to them.
I couldn't resist whipping up a batch of our pancakes
in festive purple, yellow & green Mardi Gras inspired colors!
I used a bit of food coloring &
cooked them on the griddle -
oh, how I love my griddle pan! It gets used so, so much.
Mardi Gras, just isn't Mardi Gras without music!
Have you seen the Music/Sound Shakers we made last year?
How did you spend Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday?
Did you indulge in any sweets/goodies?
