From the vibrant colors to the excitement in the street, the Mardi Gras celebration is a time to enjoy local communities and traditions. Luckily, you don’t have to travel all the way down the river to New Orleans, but can celebrate right in your backyard (well sort of) in nearby cities. Mardi Gras is a celebration for all ages and thanks to Activity Village we’ve prepared some DIY crafts that will be fun for the whole family!
