Winter rhymes

Here are some winter rhymes you can sing together and some craft ideas.


Sung to the tune of I’m a Little Teapot, I’m a Little Snowman is a short and sweet rhyme ideal to use with actions.

I’m a Little Snowman

I’m a little snowman, short and fat,
Here’s my scarf!
And here’s my hat!
When I see the snowflakes, hear me shout!
All you children, please come out!

You could make snowmen in the snow and take a picture to bring and share with everyone at circle time. You could also well make one out of junk materials, drawing or painting and bring in to share with you friends and teachers.

Another fun action rhyme is Snowflake snowflake which is sung to the tune of Teddy Bear Teddy Bear turn around.

Snowflake Snowflake

Snowflake, snowflake, dance around!
Snowflake, snowflake, touch the ground!
Snowflake, snowflake, soft and white!
Snowflake, snowflake, snowball fight!
Snowflake, snowflake, in the air!
Snowflake, snowflake, EVERYWHERE!

You could make Snowflakes with paper.

Song about falling snow

Falling Snow

See the pretty snowfakes
Falling from the sky;
On the wall and housetops
Soft and thick they lie.

On the window ledges,
On the branches bare;
Now how fast they gather,
Filling all the air.

Look into the garden,
Where the grass was green;
Covered by the snowflakes,
Not a blade is seen.
Now the bare black bushes
All look soft and white,
Every twig is laden,
What a pretty sight!

You could make snow pictures using cotton wool, twigs, buttons and material.
