Design your own Mardi Gras Parade Float

Materials & Tools

Shoebox
Colored Paper, Foil, Gift Wrap
Small Dolls, Toys, Figures


Directions

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!

I am from New Orleans and still live there today. I make shoebox floats every year with my children. We judge who has the best at the end. We also make homemade king cakes and masks. I used to ride on the floats.
