Celebrating Carnival from Home

Want to be included in the Carnival festivities from home? Here’s how your family can participate:

Decorating Masks:

No Carnival celebration is complete without masks. Masks were traditionally worn at Carnival parties where guests would conceal their identities in order to remove social barriers. Decorating masks is a traditional and fun activity for families to get creative for the occasion. Head to a craft store near you for supplies or here is a link to 10 blank paper masks for decorating. 

Candy Guessing Game:

Another reason why kids love Carnival is the candy. A fun activity to win candy is the candy guessing game. Fill a jar with a known amount of candy and have each family member guess the number that’s in the jar. The winner who guesses the closest to the actual number win’s extra candy!

Making Nonnefäscht:

Carnival traditions include a lot of tasty treats including Nonnefäscht which directly translates to “nun’s farts”. These are delicious lumps of fried dough soaked with sugary icing. This traditional snack is a perfect at home Carnival activity for families. Follow this recipe to make your own!
