Mardi Gras Make Your Own Mask

With Mardi Gras seemingly early this year, the stores have been stocked with King Cakes, beads, masks and decorations. My kids are already getting excited so we thought it would be a great theme for my son's recent 3rd birthday.

The kids created their own Mardi Gras mask. I purchased plain masks, feathers, glitter stars, stickers, ribbon and other bobbles. I set out the accessories in a plastic veggie tray so the kids could easily access them. I also set out tape, glue and scissors.

The masks were spectacular and everyone enjoyed making them. Make one of your own for Mardi Gras this year. (or your own Mardi Gras-themed party anytime. We also played Zydeco-musical chairs.)
