How to make the snowman handprint art:

Print out the handprint snowman template below, it will print out on one full page and will print out in portrait. Make sure to check the printer settings.

You can of course print this on normal printer paper, but with all of our crafts, they always look better on cardstock.

Grab the supplies above and get creating!

Let the kids decide what color handprint they want to use. But we have used grey for the snowman’s body and green and red for his hat.

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

Cover one hand in the same color paint (we used grey).

The other hand paint the palm of their hand in the same color as the other one. But the fingers need to be colored in different colors for the snowman’s hat.

Press one hand with the fingers pointing to the bottom of the page just under the snowman’s scarf. The other hand has the fingers pointing to the top of the page (this one needs to be the one with the different colored fingers.)

Press down all along their hand to make sure the handprint transfers fully.

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

Let it dry completely before adding the googly eyes, and the carrot nose. They can also color the snowflakes and the scarf if they want to.
