Since the Mardi Gras holiday is this weekend, we were able to buy the supplies for half-price. We bought a craft mask, some decorations, and a roll of star garland.
Yes, the mask looks a little creepy but Buddy loves it.
While the paint was drying, Buddy and I discussed the letter M. We talked about the sound that M makes and how mask and Mardi Gras both begin with the letter M. Buddy listed other M words like Mommy and macaroni so he is beginning to grasp the concept of sound recognition. After the paint was dry, I helped Buddy use glue to attach our decorations onto the mask.
Of course Uncle David had to join in on the fun as well!
Now if only we had some cream cheese king cake!
