March Art and Craft Ideas

Easy Mardi Gras Hats- Mardi Gras, or also known as "Fat Tuesday" is a catholic Holiday that kicks off the Lent season. This easy to make craft is perfect for kids all ages. 

Mardi Gras Masks- What would Mardi Gras be without the colorful masks? My kids loved making and wearing these feathery masks. Each one turned out so unique! Great for ages 5 and up.

  
March's Lion and Lamb Craft- Will March come roaring in like a lion and go out tame like a lamb? Perhaps it will be the other way around? What a fun way to predict and track weather changes! You can use the following craft to teach about weather patterns by asking your toddler whether they think March will start off  wintry or spring-like and creating one of the two based on their theory. If you are in a classroom setting, you can have each student make one of each and track each day on a large classroom calendar - or make a chart to show how many think it will start off as a lion as compared to those who will start off as a lamb. The possibilities are endless! 



 Dr. Seuss



Sam I Am Dr. Seuss Craft- I have to say that after having children, one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books became "Green Eggs and Ham" with the persistent character Sam I Am.  Why? It's kind of silly actually. I have extremely picky eaters in my home- children of which say they do not like something before they actually try it! Whenever I read this story to them I always ask "hmmmm.... that's funny- why don't you think he liked green eggs and ham?" A light bulb would then go off in their little heads "Oh- he didn't like it because he had never had it before!" Then when I try to introduce new food to them I always refer back to Green Eggs and Ham.


Dr. Seuss Craft Cat in the Hat

Cat in the Hat Dr. Seuss Craft- Who doesn't love that crazy cat created by Dr. Seuss? The Cat in the Hat is a cherished character that is always up to no good- but means well. Create a three-dimensional Cat in the Hat kids craft using a milk jug, tissue paper and your child's imagination.
