We are in for some more cold weather and your kids will be inside. Here is a fun idea that could actually win your kids some cash. This can be done as an individual or a school group project. Just have your kids build a miniature Mardi Gras Float out of a shoebox.

The competition is open to preschoolers through High School with first, second and third prizes in each age group. Floats will be judged on theme, originality and construction. Floats will be received from 3:30-4:30 pm at the Tourism Bureau on February 7th. This could be a fun project for the whole family.
