Mardi Gras, meaning “Fat Tuesday” is an annual Carnival celebration in the Southeast United States in New Orleans. Celebrations are concentrated for about two weeks before and through Fat Tuesday (Mardi Gras in French), also known as Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday. Usually there is one major parade each day (weather permitting). The parades in New Orleans are organized by Carnival krewes. Krewe float riders toss throws to the crowds; the most common throws are strings of colourful plastic beads, doubloons (aluminium or wooden dollar-sized coins usually impressed with a krewe logo), decorated plastic throw cups, Moonpies, and small inexpensive toys. – Wikipedia
With nearly 80K shares on Pinterest, my original Olaf is my most popular free printable of all time! You’ll find the Winter (original Olaf) Edition here, the Summer Edition Olaf here, and the Halloween Edition Olaf here. The basic Olaf printable comes with head, body, arms, feet, carrot nose, 5 sets of eyes, eyebrows, hair, and buttons.
Since I’ve left things a bit too late to do anything for Mardi Gras (although, I really want to do that again, we had so much fun the last time we celebrated it!) I thought I would make a Mardi Gras Olaf printable instead. So this edition comes with a crown, mask, and beads. I’ve included a bead necklace, as well as loose beads, so that you can create your own colour combinations.
As in previous editions I’ve provided two paper sizes – A4 (UK) and 8.5 x 11″ (US). You can download the regular size, which creates a small Olaf, and comes on one sheet, or the large size, which will give you a much bigger one (obvs)! Those pieces are spread over several sheets of paper. I had feedback that the regular size was a bit fiddly to cut out, but provide them still, as they’re still requested – I hope to keep as many people happy with these free printables!
Simply print onto white card, cut the pieces out (young children may need help) and build a snowman! You can stick the pieces together with a glue stick if you like. Some readers have shared their Olafs with me, and have used other craft supplies like glitter and cotton wool for snow! Others have laminated their pieces, which I think is a great idea!
