Easy Kid-Friendly Snowmen Ornaments

Are you looking for an inexpensive gift idea for family members? Maybe you’re looking for an easy Christmas craft for the kids.  You might like these snowmen ornaments.

For this project, I purchased a box of shatterproof bulb ornaments. I think you can get them for about $5 for a 24 pack.  I used some inexpensive Apple Barrel paint that we already had and I painted the kid’s fingertip with white paint and pressed it onto the ornament to make the snowman and snow.  Then I used a fine tip paint brush to add the eyes, nose, and buttons.  Once the front was dry I painted the kids’ names and the year on the back.  These are a nice keepsake gift for family and close friends. 

Teacher Tip:  When pressing the child’s finger onto the ornament have them look away at an object.  When children are watching they tend to want to press it themselves or the resist the motion, and many times you will end up with a blurry mess.

Do you have any inexpensive ornament ideas to share?
