Frugal Mardi Gras Fun 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. Mardi Gras Day is on March 4, 2014 this year.

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.

Frugal Mardi Gras Fun:

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!
