Fun Mardi Gras Crafts for Kids with a DIY Cuff Bracelet

See a handful of Mardi Gras crafts for kids and Learn how to make a Mardi Gras cuff bracelet from a toilet paper roll tube.

I remember as a child celebrating Mardi Gras at school with a king cake (back when they actually baked the “baby” in the cake). We enjoyed a day of beads, king cake and Mardi Gras crafts and activities.

Now that I live around the original home of Mardi Gras, Mobile AL (nope, it’s not New Orleans), Mardi Gras is a huge deal. The public school systems even shut down for a few days to celebrate.

I’m excited for my kids to learn a little more about this holiday that, honestly, I didn’t know much about until we moved to south Alabama.

First, let me share a fun Mardi Gras craft with an easy DIY cuff bracelet from a toilet paper roll. Speaking of toilet paper tubes, If you’re interested I’ve got a few other great toilet paper and paper towel roll crafts too.
