Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, is all about indulgince. So you know those sweets you’re going to give up for Lent? This is your day to get it all in before the fasting season (which starts tomorrow, Ash Wednesday). Typically you think of wild parties in New Orleans but around here, the kids are getting in on some of the fun.

Mardi Gras Beads
Forget the store bought kind, we’re making our own! Using the pasta that we dyed purple, green and gold yesterday and some simple twine, the kids get to string their own beads. Visit my tutorial for instructions on how to Dye your own pasta.
This is the first year I’m going to make a King Cake. They look like so much fun and the kids loved that we made our own colored sugars to put on top!
