Snowflakes, Snowflakes (Tune: Are You Sleeping) 

Snowflakes, snowflakes  

Snowflakes, snowflakes  

All around, all around  

Whirling twirling snowflakes, whirling twirling snowflakes  

Hit the ground, hit the ground. 


Snowflake, Snowflake (Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star) 

Snowflake, snowflake in the sky ) , love to watch you floating by.  

Down you fall upon the ground  

Down you fall without a sound .  

Snowflake, snowflake in the sky love to watch you floating by. 


Dance Like Snowflakes (Tune: Are You Sleeping?) 

Dance like snowflakes, dance like snowflakes  

In the air, in the air  

Whirling, twirling snowflakes  

Whirling, twirling snowflakes Here and there, here and there 


Snowflakes (Tune: Sailing, Sailing)  

Snowflakes, snowflakes  

Falling to the ground Each one rests so gently  

They never make a sound  

Snowflakes, snowflakes Are so pure and white  

The special thing about them is No two are alike 


Snowflakes Falling Down (Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat)  

Snowflakes falling down  

Falling to the ground  

Big white fluffy flakes  

That do not make a sound 


Winter Wonderland (Tune: Ring Around the Rosie)  

Winter, winter wonderland  

Pockets full of mittens  

Snowflakes, snowflakes we all fall down! 


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

I’m a little snowman, look at me (make round body with arms)  

Here are my buttons, 1, 2, 3 (count buttons on your chest)  

When the sun comes out, I cannot play  

Watch me slowly melt away (slowly melt body over towards the floor) 


Five Little Snowmen (Tune: Five Little Ducks) 

5 little snowmen standing in a row  

Each with a hat and a colorful bow  

The sun came out and shone all day  

And the red little snowman melted away!  

(change the color each time, counting down by 1) 


10 Little Snowflakes (Tune: 10 Little Indians) 

One little, two little, three little snowflakes, 

Four little, five little, six little snowflakes, 

Seven little, eight little, nine little snowflakes, 

Ten little snowflakes on my tongue!  (stick tongue out) 

Ten little snowflakes on my hat! (pat head) 

Ten little snowflakes on my mittens!  (wiggle hands) 

Ten little snowflakes on my boots! (point to feet) 


Snowflake, Snowflake 

Snowflake, snowflake dance around,  

Snowflake, snowflake, touch the ground,  

Snowflake, snowflake soft and white,  

Snowflake, snowflake snowball fight! 


Five Little Snowmen 

Five little snowmen on a snowy day 

The first one said, "Let's play, what do you say?"  

The second one said, "Let's stomp on the ground."  

The third one said, "Let's roll around."   

The fourth one said, "Let's run and run and run."  

The fifth one said, "I'm afraid I feel the sun."   

"Oh dear," cried the snowmen, as they looked toward the sky.   

And the five melting snowmen waved a fond goodbye. 


Flannel Boards


Misc Activities


Think of words that rhyme with “snow.” 



On three cards, draw simple weather pictures: bright yellow sun, dark gray clouds and raindrops, a snowman and snowflakes. Prepare three piles of clothing to match these weather conditions (either actual clothes or pictures): a bathing suit and sunglasses, an umbrella and boots, mittens, hat and scarf. Show your child one of the weather pictures and discuss. Then your child can choose the right clothes for that kind of weather. If you decide to get out actual clothing, help your child dress up in these items and act out appropriate weather related activities.
