Bonhomme Carnaval

We may not have much snow here, but we certainly have the SPIRIT of snow!  Our French Immersion teachers put on a fantastic activity day to celebrate the traditional CARNAVAL that is enjoyed in Montreal at this time of year. We even had the famous “Bonhomme” come to visit!

We were VERY lucky… we got the ice cream station first!  It was especially enjoyed by those brave enough to have it with Maple Syrup!  We had a little extra time, so we played a game of “hangman”.  The next station was in the gym.  We played bean bag toss… which is a little bit like a curling target.  Then we got to use the scooters and hockey sticks to do the “canoe race”.  Wow!  That was REALLY hard!  Pin the face on the Bonhomme was fun.  Some people could see through the blindfold, so we changed the rules to make the FUNNIEST Bonhomme face the winner! Then we had a “snowball toss” game. You could get 5, 10, or 15 points depending on which basket you threw your snowball in.  Pictionary was really hard.  You had to draw or act out words that are part of Carnaval or French Canadian traditions.  Last of all we went to the music room to learn to play a French song on  the xylophone.

What a fun day!
