Song: “Snowy Pokey”

You put your right mitten in, You take your right mitten out,
You put your right mitten in and you shake it all about.
You do the Snowy Pokey and you turn yourself around.
That’s what it’s all about!

You put your left mitten in….
You put your right boot in…
You put your hat in…
You put your snowself in…..

Fingerplay: I’m a Friendly Snowman

I’m a friendly snowman big and fat (stretch arms out at sides)
Here is my tummy and here is my hat (point to tummy and then top of head)
I’m a happy fellow, here’s my nose  (smile and then point to nose)
I’m all snow from my head to my toes (point to head and then to toes)
I have two bright eyes so I can see (point to eyes)
All the snow falling down on me (flutter fingers downward)
When the weather’s cold I’m strong and tall (stand up tall)
But when it’s warm I get very small. (crouch down low)
