The Books We Read:
The Mitten by Jim Aylesworth--great alternative read-aloud to Jan Brett's classic.
I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen

Songs and Fingerplays:
Winter Hokey Pokey
Same as the traditional Hokey Pokey, but hats, mittens, and boots instead!

Snowflake Dance
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.

Project—Paperbag Hats:

 

 We used craft paper, dot markers, felt flowers, pom poms, and crayons to make these hats. Fun and easy!
