Songs & Fingerplays

Sing A Song Of Winter - sung to "Sing a Song of Sixpence"

Sing a song of winter, frost is in the air;
Sing a song of winter, snowflakes everywhere,
Sing a song of winter, hear the sleighbells chime,
Can you think of anything as nice as wintertime?

Mrs. Gary McNitt

Winter Hokey Pokey

You put your mitten in, you take your mitten out
You put your boots in, you take your boots out
You put your coat in, you put your coat out
You put your hat in, you put your hat out
You put your scarf in, you put your scarf out

Grey days
Freeze my feet,
The world has
Curled up tight
To wait for spring.

~Submitted by Cheryl's Sweethearts ChildCare


Runny nose, sniff, snort!
Cold toes, I've caught
Walking in the rain, another cold again.
Freezing air, damp coat,
Wet hair, sore throat,
Fingers dropping off. Listen to my cough.

Winter Sun

Recite the poem below and let the children fill in the blanks.

Winter sun, don't you run,
Stay with me and have some fun.
Shine on the________, shine on me,
Shine on the________, shine on the tree.
Shine on the________, shine so fair,
Shine on the________, shine everywhere!

Winter Days - (Flannel Story)

Five little snowmen round and fat.
Each one wearing a funny hat.
In the morning, out came the sun.
It looked down and melted one.
Repeat with 4,3,2,1 snowmen

Dressing for Winter - (Flannel Story)

This is how we dress on a cold Winter's day.
We put on our snowsuits to go out to play.
Then we put on our boots for walking in the snow.
Next, our hats and our mittens.
'Cause the wind begins to blow.
And now we're all ready to go out and play.
We'll stay nice and warm on this cold Winter day.
