Mardi Gras Brain Break and Fine Motor Freebies

I’ve been lucky enough to visit New Orleans a few years ago.  It’s an amazing city!  I would love to someday get to visit New Orleans during Mardi Gras.  I can’t even imagine!  When I think of Mardi Gras I think of things like dancing, signing, parades, and movement.  This kind of activity is perfect for  Mardi Gras theme for brain breaks and gross motor activities.  All the fun decorations and costumes, make for fun play dough mats to work on fine motor skills.
