cute ornament idea

I know a lot of people are "done" with the holidays but I'm not. So you'll have to put up with a little more holiday least til we get into the new year anyway! 

My daughter's class did these ornaments at their class party and I think it's such a cute idea. I didn't come up with it, of course, but I wanted to share it. You take a regular ball ornament (I think the blue ones look the best) and cover your child's hand with white acrylic paint. The palm of their hand should be placed on the bottom part of the ornament so their fingers come up the sides forming the "snowmen". Once it's dried you (or your child) can draw the faces & hats on the snowmen. Wouldn't it be cute to do this every year and see how the snowmen grow?!!

Here's the poem that goes along with it. I made these cards for the kids to take home with their ornaments. (The blurred out part is where I put the school, class & teacher's name).
