Celebrate Mardi Gras in style. Eat a doughnut and make a flag! Crayola® Fabric Markers produce vibrant colors and are easy to use.
Mardi Gras means “Fat Tuesday” in French. It is a Christian tradition that is celebrated the day before Ash Wednesday where people eat richer foods and celebrate before the Lenten season of fasting.
The traditional colors of Mardi Gras are green (faith), gold (power), and purple (justice).
Have an adult cut a piece of white fabric (100% cotton) into a rectangle about 12in. x 16 in. (30.5 cm x 40.6 cm) with scissors.
Protect your work area with recycled newspaper. Place a piece of white paper underneath the fabric.
Create a design highlighting a symbol of Mardi Gras, like the King’s crown or Fleur-de-lis using the green, yellow (for gold), and purple Crayola Fabric Markers.
When you are finished, ask an adult to iron your design. Set iron on cotton setting and iron on the reverse side using a back and forth motion for 4 minutes. Or place the flag in the dryer for 30 minutes on the hottest setting. This will fix the color to the fabric.
Stain Advisement: Fabric markers are permanent on clothing and contain colorants that may stain household surfaces. Wear a smock to protect clothing and cover your work surface. Recap markers as soon as possible and store in a horizontal position. Do not shake markers.
Fold over one of the shorter edges about 1 in. (2.5cm) and use masking tape to keep secure it, creating a pocket.
Slip a dowel stick through the pocket and tie a piece of ribbon, string or yarn to each end of the dowel stick. Hang the flag and have a celebration with all your favorite foods.
