Convert it to movie clip by clicking Insert > Convert to Symbol or pressing F8, named it as snow. Double click the snow Movie Clip . Now we work inside it.

Create a motion guide layer as the track of snowball falling down by clicking motion guide icon below the timeline or Insert > Motion Guide. In the Motion Guide Layer draw some curve lines as the tracking line of snowball. Make sure you have turn on the snap function (View > Snap to Object).

At the beginning position, put the snowball at the start position of line. Then, at the end position put the snowball at the end of line track. Make motion tweening between start and end keyframe. Repeat the the steps for other lines. To have the snow cover all over the stage, just copy the snow movie clip in the scene1 and paste it in your stage.
