Mardi Gras Goodies

Mardi Gras Goodies

Design your own Mardi Gras Parade Float

First, choose a theme. A favorite holiday, a country, an animal, a famous person, etc. are all ideas for themes.

A shoe box is a great base to use to create a float. Turn the bottom of the shoe box upside down, so the flat part is on top. Attach the cover of the shoe box to either side so that it stands on end. Cover the shoe box with colored paper, foil, gift wrap or any combination and decorate the float according to its' theme. Small toys, dolls and wooden figures can also be used. Make more than one float and have a whole parade!
