Easy Mardi Gras Crafts Perfect for Fat Tuesday

We have some really fun Carnival celebration crafts for your Mardi Gras party or class celebration with kids.  Fat Tuesday was named for the practice of eating junk food (rich, fatty foods) before the fasting season.  While we totally love the idea of a day of eating super yummy foods, the decadence of Fat Tuesday can be seen in everything including the decorations, dress, traditions, activities and crafts

That makes for really fun crafting!  Fat Tuesday is about excess and sparkles and embracing fun.  Kids get that immediately and can’t wait to express that through what they make for Mardi Gras.
