When it comes to shoe box crafts the good news is that almost every craft that involves using a shoe box is fast and easy. But the best part about how fast and easy the shoe box craft projects are is that most of the supplies you are going to need can actually be found in your own home, although there are a few that will require you to make a trip to a craft store to purchase certain supplies. But shoe box crafts are great crafts for kids because of how easy and fast they are to create, and best of all, all they really need is their imagination.
Here are some shoe box crafts that are fast and easy.
Supplies to decorate your float
Flip your shoe box upside down and paint it. Traditional Mardi Gras colors are purple, green and gold, but you can paint it any color you wish
A variation to this project is to use the lid; you can get creative by gluing the lid onto the bottom of the shoe box in various positions.
After the shoe box has dried you are going to need to gather the supplies that you need to decorate your float. Some things that you can use would be crepe paper, tissue paper, beads, foil, ribbon, small action figure dolls, glitter etc. The key to decorating your float is to be creative.
