Mardi Gras crafts for kids

Filed under: Activities: Babies

If you're Catholic or live in a heavily-Catholic area, you might know that Mardi Gras is coming up. (The area I live in doesn't really have many Mardi Gras activities, but my family lives in an area the celebrates.)

Mardi Gras Day is on February 20 this year, so you still have time to make some crafts.

When I think of visiting Mardi Gras parades in the past, besides hearing "boobs for beads" is the actual tossing of the beaded necklaces. Why not make your own necklaces?

You can get a string of yarn and some Life Savers candies (or any candies that have a hole in the middle) and string them on the yarn. Life Savers have green, yellow and purple candies, which are the colors needed for a Mardi Gras necklace.

For a little more fun, you can have your very own "parade" around your house, complete with bead tossing. Just keep the clothes on, okay?
