Mardi Gras!

What a busy week here in New Orleans!  We are trying to squeeze Valentine's Day, Mardi Gras, and 100 Days of school all into this 1 week!  Today we did Mardi Gras!  Such fun!  I did the, "It's Mardi Gras!" reader on the smart board for the kids.  Then we moved to the tables.  Since we're on the letter K, we did a K is for King Cake color and trace page:
Next I pulled one little person at a time to paint the paper bag king cakes I had prepared.  You may be able to do more at once but with my "crewe," one at a time was all I was brave enough to tackle! ;0)
The students who were waiting colored the book.
I felt like I was running a bakery!  Here are 3 little king cakes "cooling." ;0)
We write each kid's name on the plate; fill the center with beads and send the whole thing home in a gallon zipper bag on Friday!  Fun, fun, fun!  A Mardi Gras gift for their families!
I'll post a pic when the paint dries!

You can get these activities and MUCH MORE from my, "It's Mardi Gras Time!" Emergent Reader & Centers download.  Click on the cover below to find out what else is in this unit:
