Winter Songs and Poems

Chubby Little Snowman (action rhyme)
A chubby little snowman,
(Hold hands out to demonstrate "chubby.")

Had a carrot nose.
(Point to nose.)

Along came a bunny,
(Hop like a bunny.)

And what do you suppose?
(Shrug shoulders; hold out hands, as if to question.)

That hungry little bunny,
(Rub stomach.)

Looking for his lunch.
(Hold hand above eyes, as if searching for something.)

Ate that snowman's carrot nose,
(Pretend to eat.)

Nibble, nibble, crunch!!

Five Little Snowmen (action rhyme)
Five little snowmen standing in a row.
(Hold up five fingers; stand up straight like soldier.)

Each had two eyes and a carrot nose.
(Point to eyes; point to nose.)

Along came the sun and shone all day,
(Form sun with hands; wipe sweat from brow.)
And one little snowman melted away.
(Hold up one finger; slowly "melt" to the ground.)

Four little snowmen...
Three little snowmen...
Two little snowmen...
One little snowman...

I'm a Great Big Snowman
to the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot"
I'm a great big snowman,
Tall and fat.
Here's my tummy.
Here's my hat.
Raisins for my eyes,
And a carrot nose,
I'm all snow from head to toe!

by Shel Silverstein
I made myself a snow ball as perfect as could be.
I thought I'd keep it as a pet and let it sleep with me.
I made it some pajamas and a pillow for it's head.
Then, last night it ran away.
But first -- it wet the bed.

Snowflakes, Snowflakes
to the tune of "Are You Sleeping?"
Snowflakes, snowflakes,
Snowflakes, snowflakes,
All around,
All around--
Whirling, twirling snowflakes,
Whirling, twirling snowflakes,
Hit the ground,
Hit the ground.

The Winter Pokey
to the tune of "The Hokey-Pokey"
You put your right mitten in,
You take your right mitten out.
You put your right mitten in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the winter pokey, [shiver]
And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!

You put your left mitten in....
You put your right boot....
You put your left boot....
You put your long scarf in....
You put your warm cap in....
You put your snowsuit in....

(Sung to The Farmer In The Dell)
The frost is on the roof (point hands over head)
The frost is on the ground (point to the floor)
The frost is on the window (make a window with your hands)
The frost is all around (make large circles with hands)

Making A Snowperson
Roll it, roll it, get a pile of snow. 
(make rolling motion)Rolling, rolling, rolling, rolling, rolling we will go.Pat it, pat it, face it to the south. 
(patting motion)Now my little snowman's done, eyes, nose and mouth 
(point to each)

Three little zippers on my snowsuit, 
(hold up three fingers)Fasten up as snug as snug can be.It's a very easy thing as you can seeJust zip, zip, zip! (do three zipping motions)I work the zippers on my snowsuit.Zippers really do save time for meI can fasten them myself with one, two, three.Just zip, zip, zip! (do three zipping motions)
