Mardi Gras Crafts for Kids – #FridayFrivolity

Mardi Gras is February 28th and it’s our theme for tonight’s Friday Frivolity.

Here are a few ways you can celebrate Mardi Gras with the kids that’s family friendly fun.

Masks

Paper plate masks are a common kid’s craft you see for Mardi Gras because they’re so ridiculously easy. You cut out the shape of your mask, decorate and add a Popsicle stick to hold it in place. Deidre from JDaniel4’s Mom used leftover pizza boxes.

 

Plastic masks are also crazy simple and easy because the masks come pre-cut from the store. Campfires and Cleats did this and you can check out the ones her family made.

Paper Cup Maracas

I loved to make these in elementary school. You use two plastic cups with beans or rice inside taped together to get the sound. You can decorate as you’d like. Activity Village UK painted their cups green and purple for the celebration. There’s a variation they did with water bottles that I like too. For the little littles it may be a more secure option.

 

Shoebox Floats

This is my favorite because everyone in the family could make one and you could have your own parade at home. You decorate shoeboxes in the style of the parade floats. I’ve seen some crafters on Pintrest use spray painted dolls or animal figures as their mascots. New Orleans Moms Blog goes into detail on how to do it and has tons of other ideas as well.

Have you ever been to Mardi Gras or thrown a Mardi Gras party?
