Arts & Crafts: Holidays > Mardi Gras


Necklace added 2-21-99
Original Author Unknown

Need: Fruit Loop Cereal, string

Directions: Make your own beaded necklaces out of Fruit Loops and string.


Mask added 2-21-99 Original Author Unknown

Need: paper plate, and decorations

Directions: Make a mask from l/2 of a paper plate with an indent for nose and cut out eyes and let children decorate.


Jester Hats added 2-21-99 Original Author Unknown

Need: Paper Plates, Scissors, Paint, streamers

Directions: Using a paper plate you cut 6 lines like your cutting a pizza. Do NOT cut
through to the rim. The plate will have cuts in the center that will look similar to a pizza slice that will allow you to place the plate onto the child's head like a crown. When you place the plate on the child's head the points will stick up like a crown. I think these could pass as jester hats of a sort. Paint them with purple, green & gold colors which are Mardi Gras colors. You could also staple long streamers using the same colors around the hats just to make them fun.


Another Necklace added 2-21-99 Original Author Unknown

Need: Flour and & Salt Dough, toothpicks, paint, string

Directions: Let the kids make some beads using the famous flour & salt recipe. Roll into a ball & poke a hole into the ball & bake. When baked paint them purple, green & gold. Let them string a necklace.


Fireworks added 2-21-99 Original Author Unknown

Need: Black paper, glue, glitter

Directions: Make your own fireworks. We gave each of the children a piece of black
construction paper and had them make designs using white glue (Elmer's). They then sprinkled glitter over the glue. We used a variety of colors to give it a firework effect!
