I found the idea for the next ornament here.
I think it's important for the kids to be a part of this yearly tradition and they do really seem to enjoy the giving part of it. Sometimes E takes some convincing, but he is always so proud when he is finished. Although he did say to me "Mom, those ornaments are just weird...no, seriously mom, how can your fingers be snowmen?"
"Hands that give also receive."
PS Yes Mom, you have some handprint snowman ornaments coming your way ;)
