Fun Mardi Gras Activities for Kids
Mardi Gras is a fun-filled celebration that takes place before the start of Lent, and it’s not just for adults! Kids can join in on the festivities and have a blast. Here are some ideas for Mardi Gras activities that you can do with your little ones.
1. Decorate Masks
One of the most popular Mardi Gras traditions is wearing masks. You can purchase pre-made masks at a party supply store or have your kids make their own. Use glitter, feathers, beads, and other colorful materials to decorate the masks.
2. Have a Parade
Create your own Mardi Gras parade in your neighborhood or backyard. Kids can decorate wagons or bikes with streamers, balloons, and other festive decorations. Have them dress up in costumes and march to their favorite tunes.
3. King Cake
Bake a traditional Mardi Gras King Cake with your kids. The cake is made of a sweet dough and has a small plastic baby hidden inside. The person who finds the baby is said to have good luck for the year. Check out my easy to follow recipe.
4. Face Painting
Face painting is always a hit with kids. Use Mardi Gras colors like purple, green, and gold to create fun designs on their faces. You can also hire a professional face painter to make the experience extra special.
5. Bead Crafts
Mardi Gras beads are a must-have accessory during the celebration. Your kids can use the beads to create their own jewelry or crafts. Use pipe cleaners to make bracelets or necklaces, or create a bead mosaic by gluing beads onto a piece of cardboard.
6. Dance Party
Put on some Mardi Gras music and have a dance party with your kids. Teach them how to do the Mardi Gras Mambo or just let them dance to their favorite songs. It’s a great way to burn off some energy and have fun.
Mardi Gras is a fun time for everyone, and there are plenty of activities that kids can enjoy. Whether you’re baking a King Cake or having a parade in your backyard, your kids are sure to have a blast. So, let the good times roll!
