Three years ago, Nicholas’ preschool class made these snowman hand print keepsake ornaments as the Christmas gift for the parents. Every year it makes me smile as I am unpacking it.
If you are looking for a cute, inexpensive way to personalize a gift for a grandparent or friend or to get the kids involved in making something, I think this is a very cool idea and it seems easy enough to do with young really kids.
Just dip your child’s hand in white paint and make a hand print, wrapping around the bottom of a smooth, dark ornament.
When the pant is dry (I would stick it upside-down in styrofoam to let it dry without messing up the hand print), use paint pens or Sharpies to add details and make the fingers look like a family of snowmen. I’ve even seen stickers of snowman parts at the craft store you could use.
The back of our ornament says “Nicholas 2010.”
Let me know if you try it!
