10 Awesome Mardi Gras Kids Crafts

This post contains affiliate links at NO extra cost to you,I just like sharing the things that I love and worked for me. Thanks 

Mardi Gras is just around the corner so now is a great time to begin preparing for this fun, festive and crazy celebration! I've done various crafts with the kids over the years for this fun celebration and thought it would be fun to share some ideas with you. 

Mardi Gras is French for "Fat Tuesday" reflecting the practice of indulgent eating prior to the Lenten fast which begins the next day on "Ash Wednesday". The actual season of Mardi Gras is celebrated by some just after Three Kings Day (Epiphany) and ending on the day before Ash Wednesday. 

Traditionally the colors of Mardi Gras are green gold and purple. Purple symbolizes justice, gold symbolizes power and green is for faith. Keep this in mind when gathering your supplies!

I've put together 10 ideas for simple crafts you can do with your kids for Mardi Gras. I know my kids will love doing these and I hope yours will as well.

As you can see there is a variety of ideas for all ages. I have a 12 year old daughter who would love to make the paper beads but this would bore my 4 year old to death! He will love making the shakers, which we have done for other celebrations. The ideas are endless and you can really make each project unique and your own.

I'd love to see what you come up with or maybe you have some Mardi Gras crafts you do each year with your kids. Share your thoughts and comments below!

It's great getting to know you!
