Carnival is a time to rest from the stress of studies, exams, and work. It’s a time to have fun with your family and friends. One can enjoy the colourful and creative festivities, wear masks or dress up in your favourite costume, and be creative through art, craft or dance.

  • What do you like best about the carnival? For example, masks, floats, face-painting, King Carnival, dancing, and enjoying the company of friends or family.
  • Draw what inspires you on the sheet of paper and colour it or if you wish, you may be creative and create your mask or float using the craft or art materials.
  • Write a prayer to thank God for this time of rest, creativity, enjoyment and fun with family or friends.
