Winter Snow Storytime

  • Opening - Skinnamarink (from Car Songs: Songs to Sing Anywhere by Dennis Buck at Kimbo) and Sticky Sticky Bubblegum
  • Book #1 – Snowballs by Lois Ehlert
  • Stand-up Activity - Snowflakes (action rhyme, I don't remember where I picked this one up but I have seen it in many places)
Snowflakes falling down, down, down
Gently covering all the town
Swirling, twirling, down they come
One landed on my tongue
  • Bridge - Open Shut Them (fingerplay)
Open, shut them
(open and close hands)
Open, shut them
Give a little clap (clap)
Open, shut them
Open, shut them
Put them in your lap
(put hands in lap)

Creep them, creep them
Under your chin
(creep fingers up chest)
Open your mouth, but don't put them in
(do as words say)

Open, shut them
Open, shut them
Give a little clap
Open shut them
Open shut them
Put them in your lap
  • Flannelboard/Math Activity - Five Little Snowmen (I found this counting backwards rhyme on some website)
  • Book #2 - Cleo In the Snow by Caroline Mockford
  • Activity – When It's Cold Outside (action song from Pick Me Up! Fun Songs for Learning Signs by Roger Treece and Nancy Stewart)
  • Closing - Use scarves to the song "Milkshake" from Songs for Wiggleworms by Old Town School of Folk Music
  • Craft – Use Q-tips and white paint to make a snow scene
