First Day Of Winter Songs


Snow snow falling down

Falling on the ground

Falling here and falling there

And falling everywhere!

Use hand movements to supplement the song


Snowflakes, snowflakes, falling to the ground. Snowflakes, snowflakes, falling to the ground. I am bundled to my chin. See my footsteps where I’ve been. Snowflakes, snowflakes, falling to the ground.


Here’s one my kids love!

The day is cloudy and the wind is bold. Dress up warmly, you mustn’t get cold!
Put on your coat and zip it up tight, put on your left boot, put on your right.
Put on your scarf and put on your hat, put on your mittens and clap-clap-clap!
Go outside and play and play. Come in again, and then we’ll say-
Take off your coat that was zipped up tight, take off your left boot, take off your right.
Take off your scarf, take off your hat, take off your mittens, and then take a nap!

(To the tune of Are you Sleeping)

Dance like snowflakes
Dance like snowflakes
In the air
In the air
Whirling, Twirling snowflakes
Whirling, Twirling snowflakes
Here and there
Here and there


Way up high In the winter sky , 2 little snowflakes caught my eye.
Down to the ground they fell without a sound.
And before very long , It was snowing all around.

Hand motions Point to sky hold up 2 fingers or two have children hold up two arms up point to eye children turn around and around they really will have fun with this finger play.


Jack Frost

Where did you get that little red nose?
Jack Frost kissed it I suppose.
He kissed it once.
He kissed it twice.
Poor little nose it’s as cold as ice!


Snowball

tune – “Are You Sleeping, Brother John

Make a snowball, make a snowball. Throw it now, throw it now. Make a snowball, make a snowball. Throw it now, throw it now!

Hand imitates making snowballs and throwing the snowballs. I let my children use crumbled white tissue paper for the snowballs. They love this winter song!


Here is a cute poem that makes the kids giggle :O)

I made myself a snowball
Just as perfect as could be.
I thought I’d keep it as a pet
And let it sleep with me
I gave it some pajamas
And a pillow for it’s head.
Then, last night it ran away,
But first –it wet the bed! Gotcha!


Sung to the theme I’m a little teapot.

I’m a little snowman short and fat.
Here’s my scarf and here’s my hat.
When the snow is falling come and play.
Build a snowman every day.


A chubby little snowman had a carrot for a nose
Along came a bunny and what do you suppose?
That hungry little bunny was looking for his lunch…
And he ATE that snowman’s nose. .nibble nibble. .CRUNCH

The kids love this if you add hand movements. .be creative!!
