Winter Songs

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!!

It Is Winter (to the tune of "Are You Sleeping?") 
It is winter,
It is winter,
Oh, so cold!
Oh, so cold!
Icy, snowy weather,
Long nights and short days,
Winter's here!
Winter's here!

The Frost Song (to the tune of "The Farmer in the Dell") 
The frost is in the air.
The frost is in the air.
It's wintertime, It's wintertime,
The frost is in the air.

The frost is on the trees.
The frost is on the trees.
It's wintertime, It's wintertime,
The frost is on the trees.

The frost is on the roof.
The frost is on the roof.
It's wintertime, It's wintertime,
The frost is on the roof.

The frost is on the windows.
The frost is on the windows.
It's wintertime, It's wintertime,
The frost is on the windows.

The frost is on the ground.
The frost is on the ground.
It's wintertime, It's wintertime,
The frost is on the ground.

The frost tells me it's cold.
The frost tells me it's cold.
It's wintertime, It's wintertime,
The frost tells me it's cold.

So inside I'll stay.
So inside I'll stay.
Inside it's nice, and I am warm.
So inside I'll stay.

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!

Snowball (by Shel Silverstein)
I made myself a snowball 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.

It's Snowing! 
Snowflakes falling down, down, down,
Snowflakes falling down, down, down,
Snowflakes falling down, down, down,
Falling to the ground.

Watch them growing deeper, deeper,
Watch them growing deeper, deeper,
Watch them growing deeper, deeper,
Covering the ground.

Children playing--snow is fun!
Children playing--snow is fun!
Children playing--snow is fun!
When it hits the ground.

Now it's getting warmer, warmer.
Now it's getting warmer, warmer.
Now it's getting warmer, warmer.
Melting all the snow.

Very soon it disappears,
Very soon it disappears,
Very soon it disappears,
Now the snow's all gone.

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...

Putting on Mittens (to the tune of "The Farmer in the Dell")
Thumbs in the thumb place,
Fingers all together.
This is the song we sing
In mitten weather.
