As far as food goes, you can really adventure out into the "French Quarter." Makes some Beignets or French toast. There's a link to a Paula Dean recipe below the board. You could also make some jambalaya or another creole dish.
As far as the fun activities, have the kiddo's decorate masks. There's also a creative jar tutorial below our board to commemorate Ray, our favorite lightining bug! Were you not heartbroken in the movie when he went to be with his Evangeline?!
