Mardi Gras

Tuesday 16th February is Shrove Tuesday and we celebrate by making pancakes before Lent but did you know that it's also Mardi Gras?


Mardi Gras means Fat Tuesday and is the last day of Carnival season before Ash Wednesday. During this time, there are parades and balls all over the world but the biggest celebration is in New Orleans, Louisiana.


We made masks, hats, bead necklaces and decorated biscuits to celebrate.


Some of the children at home have joined in too!
