What is carnival?
Carnival is about expressing yourself through drumming, dancing, making costumes, storytelling, dj-ing and watching the fun!
How do you tell a Carnival Story - Here's how to...!
Headresses are just the start of your carnival costume! Has your head ever looked this good?
Make flags to wave high in the air! Everyone will see you coming.
Always develop your first thoughts so that they turn into the best ideas!
Shout out songs nice and loud so everyone can hear what you have to say!
Drums make a really great sound and a samba band makes the perfect addition to a carnival parade.
With all this great music you will be listening to, you won't be able to stop yourself from dancing along!
Paint your face with facepaint to really complete your carnival costume! Bright, bold colours are the best!
Make a carnival map to make it easier for you to follow the parade route!
Look at all the fun we had on our trip to see a real Rio carnival.
We need to choose our Samba School TShirt for 2012.
The samba song we sing is called an enredo. Learn the words and sing along!
Bean parties really start carnival off with a bang! Sit down with your bean party team to organise it all!
