Easy Ways to Celebrate Mardi Gras with Kids
Need some simple, print-and-go activities to help you celebrate Mardi Gras (also known as Fat Tuesday which is the day before Ash Wednesday) with kids? These coloring pages are perfect ways to take your holiday fun to the next level!
Mardi Gras is such a cool time and fantastic opportunity to teach your kids about this holiday. With my boys, I love to use simple printable activities, like a word search or coloring pages, to kick off new learning adventures.
Last year, I created and shared these Mardi Gras color by number pages. My boys had so much fun working on activities so I decided that we needed more easy ways to boost our celebration.
That's why I've added these free printable Mardi Gras coloring pages to our holiday fun collection!

Flip the pages over to extend the learning fun. Younger kids can draw their own versions of the Mardi Gras items (or trace the outlines of the objects). Older students can write sentences and add more facts.
