12th Birthday Mardi Gras
Mardi Gras Mask
My birthday is in about 4 weeks. I was thinking about having a Mardi Gras or Halloween party. My birthday is on October 29th. Which one should I do or what other themes?
12th Birthday Mardi Gras Response:
A Mardi Gras party
is definitely a fun and colorful party to host and there are so many craft ideas, from beading to masks, that you can add to your activities.
There is a Mardi Gras Party
page on this site that includes printable invitations and party ideas. I also have a Mardi Gras Scavenger Hunt
that I created last year, but didn't post online yet. It requires going around town, so if you have adults to help with your party, it might be doable.
Baking a King Cake
that has prizes hidden inside is so much fun. One cake I made included clues for a scavenger hunt. Another included pieces of a puzzle that the guests had to put together to find the location of a prize. I wrap prizes, clues, or puzzle pieces in tin foil to protect them during the baking process.
