RHYMES AND FINGERPLAYS:

A Chubby Little Snowman

A chubby little snowman (form arms into a circle in front of you)
Had a carrot nose (hold right hand straight out from nose)
Along came a bunny (hold up 2 fingers like bunny ears and hop up & down)
And what do you suppose? (shrug shoulders)
The hungry little bunny (rub tummy)
Looking for some lunch (look around)
Ate the snowman’s carrot nose (hold nose with right hand, left hand takes it down)
And nibble, crunch, munch! (open and close one hand to show eating)

It Is Snowing
(tune: Frere Jacques)

It is snowing, it is snowing
Flakes fall down, from the sky
See them as they flutter, watch them as they pile up
On the ground, on the ground.

It is snowing, it is snowing
All day long, then all night
Everything is covered, with a white snow blanket
On the ground, on the ground.

It stopped snowing, it stopped snowing
Now we go, out to play
Let’s all make a snowman, then we can go sledding
In the snow, in the snow.

My Snowsuit
(tune: The Farmer in the Dell)

I put on my snow pants
I put on my snow pants (pretend to put on pants)
Warm clothes for when it snows
I put on my snow pants.

I put on my big coat
I put on my big coat (pretend to put on coat)
Warm clothes for when it snows
I put on my big coat.

My hat goes on my head
My hat goes on my head (pretend to put on hat)
Warm clothes for when it snows
My hat goes on my head

My scarf goes ‘round my neck
My scarf goes ‘round my neck (pretend to put on scarf)
Warm clothes for when it snows
My scarf goes ‘round my neck.

My gloves go on my hands
My gloves go on my hands (pretend to put on gloves)
Warm clothes for when it snows
My gloves go on my hands.

My boots go on my feet
My boots go on my feet (pretend to put on boots)
Warm clothes for when it snows
My hat goes on my head.

I’m ready to go out (pretend to open the door)
I’m ready to go out
I’m dressed up warm to play outside
I’m ready to go out.
