Mardi Gras Mask Craft Idea

Fresh off our stint to Bloggers on Bourbon, I had some crafts available at my house (cause we forgot to do them in the whirlwind of our trip) and last night my family settled down to do a “Make a Mardi Gras Mask” session. This is a cheap and easy craft to make with your kids.

Plus, you wont need scissors, so its perfect for that 4-5 year old range.

We purchased:

  • Mardi Gras masks in white and black. You can get (3) for $1.99 at Hobby Lobby
  • Mixed package of feathers (approx $6)
  • Mixed package of glitter (approx $5)
  • Mixed package of glitter glue (approx $3)
  • Glue Sticks (.99)

Don’t forget that Hobby Lobby generally offers a 40% off coupon via their website for 1 item that is regular price.

When you do crafting, the one rule of thumb I have is you cannot be worried about mess.

Mess happens.

Mess is part of what makes crafting fun for kids!

But a tip is to make sure the lid is on tight when you sprinkle glitter…or this could happen:

Niiiiiiiiiice.

I’m pretty sure Chris was trying not to bust a gut when the entire thing dumped open on my mask.

Dad doesn’t have to fill silly making a mask.

It can be a manly one.

With feathers.

And glitter.

And he can write “Daddy-O” on it.

Hi, y'all! If you got this far, awesome . I am assuming you want to know more about me. I am a *cough* 36 year old mom of 2 great kids, 6 rescue animals and proud wife of my high school sweetheart. This blog is my outlet and allows me to pretend I am a kid at heart. I get to play with glitter and glue, eat lots of sweets (its for the blog, I swear!) and connect with readers and friends. As a blogger I love to share with you- so the rundown is that I am currently reading this, using these for calmer bedtimes, giving away this, and suggesting here if you ever wanted to be a blogger yourself.

  1. My junior prom was Mardi Gras themed and one of my teachers was on the planning committee so she had us make a bunch of masks instead of doing classwork for about a week. It was so much fun! It gave me the idea to do super hero masks for my 9 year old son’s birthday party a few years ago. We used a lot of the same supplies as you did but put a “boy” twist on it! They loved it.

  2. how cute what a fun craft!

  3. Fun! I’m sad we didn’t get to make them during our trip!
