How to Make a Snowmen Family Globe Ornament

I have a Christmas craft that both you and the children will love making.  I’m going to show you how to make a super-cute, super-simple ornament for your Christmas tree.  It is a snowmen family globe ornament.  The children (or yourself) will use white paint and their hand print to make the snowmen on the globe ornament.  With just a little more paint you will create an imaginative snowmen family.  Imagine how thrilled your children will be to have made a Christmas ornament for the tree themselves.
