Celebrate the Carnival season in the Nordic fashion with this family-friendly online event.
Fastelavn is a Nordic Carnival tradition where kids dress up in costumes, play games for prizes and make fun crafts, and eat traditional fastelavnsboller buns. The highlight of the event is the barrel-bashing, where kids hit a candy-filled barrel to scare away evil spirits..although nowadays the candy is the main goal! Even though we can't have Fastelavn this year, we've come up with some fun ways to celebrate at home!
Who will be the Cat Queen or King? The Danish Fastelavn barrel is not like anything you find in the USA. This Barrel is made out of wood, filled with candy and decorated with a black cat. Find out how to make your own mini barrel here..
