Mardi Gras Crafts for Kids: Make a Fun, Colorful Mardi Gras Shoebox Float

It's time for Mardi Gras! Why not celebrate it with your kids? With just a shoebox or other cardboard box, kids can make their own DIY Mardi Gras float craft project.

You'll need:

Here's how to make it:

  1. Cut construction paper or fabric to cover the box. Let your child get creative, but typical Mardi Gras colors are purple, green and gold.
  2. Glue on the construction paper or fabric. Allow to dry.
  3. Using desired embellishments, let your kids go wild and create a float that's as unique as they are.
