Use a small paintbrush to add a thin layer of paint to their hand. Make sure you have the wipes handy!!

Cover both hands in either the same color or different colors, remember this is for their beards! Place their hands facing down from the nose of the gnome. Press down all along their hand to make sure the handprint transfers fully.

Pull the child’s hands up carefully, ensuring you don’t smudge the handprints.

Let it dry completely before adding the googly eyes. They can also color the gnome’s hat and the snowflakes if they want to.
