This easy keepsake ornament is one you can make at home. You can make a fingerprint snowman. a thumbprint snowman or a handprint snowman.
All you need is paint, markers and fun foam. We were able to find all of our supplies at the local dollar store - so not just a cute craft - but an inexpensive one too!
Copy out the handprint snowman poem to go along with your ornament, and give it away to grandparents, family or keep it for your own tree!
Snowman Handprint Poem
This isn't just a snowman
As anyone can see
I made it with my fingers
Which are a part of me
Each year when you trim the tree
You'll look back and recall
Christmas of 2012
When my fingers were just this small
Using just your childs finger and thumbprints, make three white fingerprints on your fun foam stocking. Use the black paint to make a thumbprint for the hat. With foam markers, or a Sharpie, draw in the brim of the hat, a scarf and decorate your snowman as you see fit. Check out the sled our snowman is on!
Paint your child's fingers and palm with white paint, and press on fun foam stocking. Allow paint to dry. Use markers to draw hats, scarves, faces and even buttons on the snowmen.
