Snow Play Storytime

Storytime for 1-1/2 to 3 year olds:
  • Opening - Skinnamarink, Sticky Sticky Bubblegum

  • Stand-up Activity – Snowflakes (action rhyme I found a long time ago)
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 - Five Little Snowmen (counting backwards rhyme I found many years ago)

  • Activity – "When It's Cold Outside" from Pick Me Up! Fun Songs for Learning Signs by Roger Treece, Nancy Stewart, et al (This song actually did not work for the kids.  It was a little too fast and the actions were just a little too vague.)

  • Closing - Scarves to the song "Popcorn Calling Me" from Buzz Buzz by Laurie Berkner

  • Art Experience – Q-tip painting with white paint on blue construction paper to make a snow scene
