    Snowflakes, snowflakes all around; in the air and on the ground.
    Some are big and some are small. Roll them into a snowball.

    When the sun comes out to play, all the snowflakes melt away.

    Little Snowman
    I built a little snowman. He had a carrot nose.
    Along came a bunny, and what do you suppose?
    That hungry little rabbit, looking for some lunch,
    Ate my snowman's nose...nibble, nibble, CRUNCH!

    Project—Wintry Snowman:

     

    I made hand stampers ahead of time using 2" sections of paper towel rolls and bubble wrap. The kids dipped their stampers into white paint to create the snow effect, added glitter, and then glued on the rest. Many sequins and buttons went into this activity!

    Five Little Snowmen
    Five little snowmen standing in a row;
    Each with a hat and a little red bow.
    Then out came the sun and it shone all day.
    And one little snowman melted away.

    My Chubby Little Snowman
    My chubby little snowman (arms form belly)
    Had a carrot nose (put fist in front of nose).
    When along came a rabbit (two fingers hopping)
    And what do you suppose?
    That hungry little bunny (rub belly)
    Was looking for some lunch
    So he ate my snowman's nose...
    Nibble, nibble, CRUNCH!
