Snow Fun Story Time

Opening:

Hello Song (Tune: Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush)

This is the way we wave hello, wave hello, wave hello.

This is the way we wave hello,

Hello, hello, hello!

This is the way we clap hello…

This is the way we tap hello…

Talkabout:

Hello! Today we’re going to be talking about snow! We just had a blizzard on Monday, didn’t we? How much snow did you have? Did you make any snow angels or snowmen? Well, today we’re going to hear some songs and stories about playing in the snow and about snowmen! Make sure you sit still and quietly so that you don’t miss anything!

Book:

Tom & Pippo in the Snow by Helen Oxenbury

Song:

I’m a Little Snowman  (Tune: I’m a Little Teapot)

I found this song from Jbrary on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9BTRpPK-TA

I’m a little snowman, short and fat.

Here are my buttons, here is my hat.

When the sun comes up, I cannot stay.

Sllloooowwwwlllyyy I just melt away.

2nd Book:

Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner

2nd Song or Fingerplay:

Once There Was A Snowman (Tune: sort of like Following the Leader)

I also found this song from Jbrary, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qx8rhWIoegc

Activity:

Puffy Snowman Paint! Here’s the directions from Growing a Jeweled Rose: http://www.growingajeweledrose.com/2013/11/shivery-snow-paint-recipe.html?m=1

Basically, you mix shaving cream and white school glue together to paint with. You can add glitter too.

When it dries, it dries with a puffy consistency and looks like a 3D snowman!

It’s very fun to paint with as well, especially for younger kids, because it is like shaving cream, but more creamy and fluid.

Here’s my example:

Closing:

Goodbye Song (Tune: The Farmer in the Dell)

We wave goodbye like this.

We wave goodbye like this.

We clap our hands for all our friends.

We wave goodbye like this.
