FUN WINTER SONGS!


The Winter Song
(tune: Farmer in the Dell)

Let's sing a winter song,
Let's sing a winter song,
The days are short, the nights are long.
Let's sing a winter song.
The winter wind is cold,
The winter wind is cold,
It freezes noses, ears, and toes.
The winter wind is cold.
Winter now is here,
Winter now is here,
Put on your coat, your hat, your gloves, Winter now is here.

Dress Warm Poem

The day is cloudy and the wind is bold.
Dress up warmly, you mustn't get cold!

Put on your coat and zip it up tight,
put on your left boot, put on your right.

Put on your scarf and put on your hat,
put on your mittens and clap-clap-clap!

Go outside and play and play.
Come in again, and then we'll say-

Take off your coat that was zipped up tight,
take off your left boot, take off your right.

Take off your scarf, take off your hat,
take off your mittens, and then take a nap!

Ten Little Snowballs

Snow fell last night and it fell so hard,
when I looked out my window, it covered up my yard.

I made 10 little snowballs and I put them in a line.
One fell off the wall, and then there were 9.

9 little snowballs, I put them on the gate.
1 fell off and then there were 8.

8 little snowballs, I hit 1 up towards heaven.
It came down splat! and then there were 7.

7 little snowballs, I hit 1 with a stick.
It broke in little pieces and then there were 6.

6 little snowballs, all lined up side by side.
My dog stole 1 and then there were 5.

5 little snowballs, I took them to the store.
1 fell off my sled, so then there were 4.

4 little snowballs, underneath a tree.
I threw 1 at a monster, then there were 3.

3 little snowballs, I'll share them with you.
You have 1 and I have 2.

2 little snowballs, left out in the sun.
1 melted away and then there was 1.

1 little snowball left all alone.
I'll put it in my pocket and take it home.

Snowman Pokey

Have children make a snowman small enough to glue to an "popsicle" stick or tongue depressor. The snowman will be used as a small puppet to sing the snowman hokey pokey.

Tune of the Hokey Pokey

You put your snowman up, you put your snowman down,

you put your snowman up and you shake him all around.

You do the snowman pokey and you turn your self around, two stomps on the ground.

You put your snowman in front, you put your snowman in back,

you put your snowman in front and you give your knee a whack.

You do the snowman pokey and you turn your self around, two stomps on the ground.

You touch your snowman to your head, you touch your snowman to your toe,

you touch your snowman to your head and you shake his to and fro,

you do the snowman pokey and your turn your self around, two stomps on the ground.

Seasonal poetry for kids. I'll have to read these to mine as I'm not very good at writing poems.
