Yield: 1 snowglobe


  • 1 paintbrush
  • 1 pair of scissors


  • 1 piece construction paper or cardstock teal (or blue) and brown
  • acrylic paint white
  • 1 Q-tip
  • 1 small paper plate or template to trace for snow globe
  • 1 piece construction paper or cardstock
  • markers or paint pens in black, red, orange, green, brown and pink
  • 1 glue stick or school glue


  • Paint your child's hand with a thick coat of white paint.
  • Press the hand down. Apply gentle pressure to the base of the hand as well as each finger before pulling up. Always wash your child's hands fully and immediately after getting paint on the skin.
  • After the handprint has fully dried, it's time to illustrate the snowmen characters. Feel free to copy my illustration ideas or add your own. I did a combination of top hats and cute earmuffs with one scarf for added detail.
  • After your illustrations are fully added, it's time to add the final step—the snowflakes. Use your Q-tip and dip into white paint to make dots that look like snowflakes.
