Mardi Gras Party Ideas

Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday, referring to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season, which begins on Ash Wednesday.

Do you celebrate?  I think it is a fun holiday to celebrate with the kids.  Here are few fun and frugal crafts you could make.

Mardi Gras Party Ideas:

1.  Mardi Gras Necklace:  String colored shaped pasta or cereal on a string/yarn and make your own “beaded” necklace.  You can also pick up decorations at your local Dollar Store!
