The Toddlers have been getting really creative to celebrate Mardi Gras.
We looked at pictures from Mardi Gras celebrations around the world and this inspired the children to make their own collages and masks. They helped gather and used all sorts of creative materials decorating their collages and creating their own masks using feathers, sequins, and glitter. The Toddlers were really excited to hold the masks up to their faces using the lollipop stick attached and loved looking at each others masks and how funny they looked on each others faces!
