You’ll need:

A pair of scissors
Some colourful card
Finger paints
A pen
String
A finger from everyone in the family (attached to body)

There’s snow holiday like Christmas

Step 1

Step 1

Print your snowflake template onto colourful card and cut out the snowflake. (This part’s best for grownups.)

Step 2

Step 2

Find a nearby family member and borrow their finger. Put it in some finger paint then place it on a corner of the snowflake (slowly – we don’t want any sneaky smudges!) Write their name underneath the fingerprint so you don’t forget which print belongs to which person. Disaster!

Step 3

Step 3

Repeat for everyone else in the family. Still got some spaces to fill? Ask your friends / neighbours / dog. (A reindeer’s even better if you have one.)

Step 5

Step 5

Wait for the paint to dry. Maybe eat a mince pie. Or make some final changes to your Christmas list.When the paint’s dry, draw each person’s face on their fingerprint. It’ll make it extra-personalised.

Step 7

Step 7

Make a hole at the top of the snowflake and attach some string. Then hang it somewhere where it’ll catch Santa’s eye.
