Storytime - Snowmen

Even though it's 45 and rainy today in Ohio, I decided to forge ahead with my plan and do a snowmen storytime!

The Plan


All You Need for a Snowman by Alice Schertle
Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner
Snowballs by Lois Ehlert


"Five Little Snowmen" (w/flannel)

Five little snowmen (hold up 5 fingers)
All in a row
Each with a hat (point to head)
And a big red bow (point to neck)
Out came the sun and it stayed all day (curve hands above head)
And one of those snowmen melted away! (flutter hands down)

Repeat with 4, 3, 2, and 1.

"I'm a Great Big Snowman"

I'm a great big snowman (stretch hands above head)
Round and fat (hold arms out to sides)
Here is my scarf (touch neck)
And here is my hat (touch head)
When the sun gets warmer (curve hands above head)
I get flat (clap hands on "flat")
And melt into a puddle ("melt" down to floor)
Just like that!


A chubby little snowman (hold arms out at sides)
Had a carrot nose (point to nose)
Along came a bunny (hold up two fingers to make a bunny)
And what do you suppose? (shrug shoulders)
That hungry little bunny (rub tummy)
Looking for some lunch (hands over eyes, looking)
Ate that little snowman's nose (pretend to grab nose)
Nibble (hop)
Nibble (hop)
Crunch! (sit down)


Cotton Ball Snowmen (printable found here)

You just have the kids glue cotton balls onto the circles and color as they wish!
