Mardi Gras Celebration
March 5, 2022 - March 6, 2022

“Laissez les bons temps rouler!” is French for “Let the good times roll!” It’s one of the most popular sayings during Mardi Gras! Join us in The City and let the good times roll as we put on our own Mardi Gras celebration! Sing and dance your way through The City. There will even be a festive parade down our city streets!
Play Purpose: Perceptual motor skills and movement and social-emotional development.
Smart Art (on-going): Good Time Glitter & Garb >
- Today in the Art Studio children will be able to decorate cardboard box floats to use in Conga line dance party and going home Parade.
- We will also provide beads and string for children to utilize their fine motor and concentration skills to string together a necklace, bracelet, or chain!
- To align with the Mardi Gras theme, we will explore black water with glitter and gems.
Sensational Storytime in Orange Plaza (Sunday: 12noon & 3:30 PM): Mardi Gras in New Orleans > A fun, playful alphabet book filled with alliteration and facts about New Orleans.
Music & Movement (directly following Sensational Storytime): Come and join us for a dance party, filled with full-body movements to jazz rhythms and tunes!
Grown-up Tip: Try a new Cajun recipe at home tonight! Make a grocery list with the ingredients you will need. At the grocery store, let your little shopper find the items on the list. Including your children in choosing these new food items will make them more likely to eat them at home, thus getting your child to try new foods, a challenge many parents struggle with. .
