Vilvaldi's Ring Of Mystery Audio CD with the children today.
Why did we listen to this? Because it has Carnival and Mardi Gras as it 's backdrop.
Now I know that Cascarones are made with real eggs and this is a wonderful tutorial on that , but I didn't have time to do that today or the ingredients - but I never let that stop me. So start thinking what can I do instead?
Well I just so happen to have some plastic Easter Eggs from last year, some paper confetti from goodness know what , (it seems to have lived in my pantry for years), lavender oil (for the perfume smell) and some legumes I from our Montessori pouring shelf.
First off- pour the lavender oil on to the confetti and stir it in. Not too much though!
Why the lentils? Well you kneed a bit of weight to have them crack open. so any thing will do..rice, peas etc.
Some of my older children suggested stones and marbles but I considered that a hazard.
The pity of it was we really did not have enough!
Praying you have a most blessed Mardi Gras or Shrove Tuesday or Fat Tuesday or which ever term you use for this last day before the start of Lent.
Blessings to you and your homes,
