Tips From Our Readers:
Here are some helpful tips and tricks to help you makes sure YOUR hand print snowmen ornaments turn out great.
“My twins made these handprint finger paint snowman ornaments in their preschool class – love, LOVE them! We’re going to make family fingerprint ornaments every year now – one for each kid for our tree and then another for the grandparents.”
“I make these every year with my class. Make sure kids spread their fingers apart. Also make sure you push down on the fingers with their dry hand.”
“Hahaha do not attempt with a 7 month old.. mayb next year! I should have done this with my 2 yr old n the Rudolph finger prints with the 7 month old 🤔 oh well.”
“Tip for making these handprint ornaments with a baby – do it when your baby is alseep. If you’re super prepared with your paint and your ornament (and a towel to quickly clean off their hand), you can get a perfect handprint on the ornament really easy.”
“I made these for grandparents for Christmas when my daughter was a baby. They turned out just like the picture! Super easy and affordable,but very sentimental!”
“I did this in kindergarten! It still goes on my christmas tree every year!”
“Made these for grandparents’ gifts. Very cute and pretty easy to do. Used 1 1/2″ ornaments for tiny (18 mos) hands. I used clear balls and put fake snow inside.”
“It’s easy for the little ones and my 6 year old loved it cause she got to make it all by herself with no help lol”
“I had a heck of a time getting my toddler to participate and gets his paint handprint on the ornament. Finally just turned the iPad on a kid show and he was still enough for me to get his hand print on the ornament barely knowing I did it!”
“The glossy ball ornaments were too slippery for our one year olds to get good grip but these glittery ones worked perfect.”
“Made this at a Christmas party and it turned out really cute! I made one with my family members as the snowmen and used a sharpie to write their names by each fingerprint snowman”
“Our kids made these handprint snowmen ornaments in Sunday School last week – they turned out SO cute! And the kids were pretty paint-free when they came out…haha!”
