To use paint fingerprints to decorate a Christmas card with snowmen.


black/ dark card, white paint, additional coloured paint and brushes or coloured paper/ card, pencils, white paper


Use the thumb for a body and finger for the head. To make a card out of an A5 sheet of card (i.e. 2 cards from a regular A4 sheet) you will be able to fit 3 or 4 snowmen on it. Leave to dry. Fold an A4 piece of paper into 4 and cut off folds. This will make inserts for 4 cards. Beavers write a simple greeting onto their paper and glue into card. If they need more drying time Beavers could decorate an appropriate sized envelope in pens/ crayons. Add details to snowman - glue on or paint a coloured hat and/ or scarf and use a pencil to draw on eyes and buttons.
