Handprint SnowmenTealight Candle Holder- Christmas Craft


I just love this time of year. I have so many fun and festive activities for my students to do. This is one of the crafts that my students create to give as a gift to their parents. I took the idea of the snowman hand print on an ornament and combined it with the tea light candle holder that is made out of a baby food jar, and combined them. 
Materials Needed:
Blue Tissue Paper- cut into small pieces
2 Part Elmer's Glue mixed with 1 Part Water
White Paint
Black, Red, and Orange Sharpie Markers
White Paper Bags
Snowman Poem
Snowman Poem
This isn't just a snowman
as anyone can see,
I made it with my hand
which is a part of me.
Every year I'm growing,
and I'll be grown someday.
But these five tiny
snowmen will never melt away!
1. Apply glue/water mixture over the entire jar, except for rim.
2. Apply tissue paper over the glue and cover all empty spaces.
3. Gently apply another layer of glue over the tissue paper, and allow to dry.
4. Once, the glue is dried, have students put their handprint using the white paint, and allow to dry.
5. Decorate your snowmen using the Sharpie markers.
6. Finally, you can add some pretty ribbon, along with a poem inside.
I had each student decorate a paper bag to put their gift in.



Well, I hope you guys use this idea with your kiddos, I know they'll love it,  and parents will love it too!!!
Until next time,
Eat, drink, and be merry!!!
