Mardi Gras for Kids

Our images of Mardi Gras tend to be pretty R-rated: raucous parades, racy costumes, wild parties in the streets. Not exactly a festival you want to take your kids to. Although there are plenty of cool ways to celebrate Mardi Gras with your kids. At heart, Mardi Gras appeals to the kid in all of us. With a little imagination, you can concoct a Mardi Gras party for your own kids that they’ll love (and so will you).

  1. 1. Dress for the occasion. Mardi Gras costumes traditionally spoof those in power. Don't be surprised if your kids decide to dress up as you!

  2. 2. Break out the beads. Kids love those sparkly strings of Mardi Gras beads. They're a cheap easy way to feel festive this feast day.

  3. 3. Have A Movie Marathon. Get some of the kid friendly movie and invite your kids' friend to have a movie marathon at your home. Make sure to make  a lot of popcorn and beverage. 

  4. 4. Have a Crafts Day. Invite your kids' friends and make them create their own mask and other craft stuff.

  5. 5. Bake a King Cake. These traditional cakes have a tiny trinket - often a plastic baby - hidden inside. Kids love finding treasure in their food!
