TODDLER PROGRAM

OPENING SONG: The More We Get Together

OPENING RHYMES:

BOOK 1: All You Need for a Snowman by Alice Schertle

ACTON RHYME: Dressed for Winter
I actually brought items to get dressed into- hat, scarf, gloves, boots, etc. The group used actions to pretend getting dressed while I got all bundled up!

A hat goes on my head
A hat goes on my head
In winter time to keep me warm
A hat goes on my head

Boots go on my feet…

Gloves go on my hands…

Snowpants go on my legs…

ACTION RHYME: Snowflake, Snowflake

Snowflake, snowflake twirl around.
Snowflake, snowflake touch the ground.

Snowflake, snowflake land on my nose.
Snowflake, snowflake freeze my toes.

Snowflake, snowflake in the air.
Snowflake, snowflake tickle you everywhere!

ACTION SONG: I’m a Little Snowman
by Carole Peterson
from the album H.U.M

Awesome action song to do with kids- they become great big snowmen!

Flannel Board: Mr.Snowman
I found this cute snowman flannel from Little Story Bug! Her site has a great video of the flannel song 🙂

Mr. Snowman needs a hat needs a hat (clap, clap)
Mr. Snowman needs a hat needs a hat (clap, clap)
Mr. Snowman needs a hat thats a hat and that’s a matter of fact
Mr. Snowman needs a hat needs a hat! (clap, clap)

more verses..
eyes – Mr. Snowman needs some eyes oh what a surprise
nose – Mr. Snowman needs a nose, a carrot I suppose
smile- Mr. Snowman needs a smile, he’ll have it in awhile
scarf- Mr. Snowman needs a scarf and he needs some buttons! Mr. Snowman needs a scarf and some buttons – I couldn’t rhyme with scarf so I added both in on that verse 🙂
arms- Mr. Snowman needs some arms, they’ll surely add some charm

CRAFT: Mitten Decorating
This craft was purchased in the fall from Oriental Trading and included the mittens and decorative foam pieces. The children decorated the mittens and then tied them together to wear around their necks!
