Dance Like Snowflakes
(Frere Jacques)
Dance like snowflakes,
Dance like snowflakes,
In the air,
In the air,
Whirling, twirling snowflakes
Whirling, twirling snowflakes
Here and there
Here and there
The Chubby Little Snowman – Flannel Board
A chubby little snowman
Had a carrot for a nose.
Along came a bunny
And what do you suppose?
That hungry little bunny
Looking for some lunch
Ate that carrot nose
Munch, crunch, munch.
Snowflake, Snowflake
(teddybear teddy bear turn around)
Snowflake, snowflake dance around,
Snowflake, snowflake, touch the ground,
Snowflake, snowflake soft and white,
Snowflake, snowflake snowball fight!
Snowflake, snowflake in the air,
Snowflake, snowflake everywhere!
I'm a Little Snow Person
(I'm a Little Teapot)
I'm a little snow person
Short and fat
Here are my buttons,
here is my hat.
When the sun comes out,
I cannot stay.
Slowly I just melt away.

Snowy Pokey
You put your right mitten in, 
You take your right mitten out, Y
ou put your right mitten in and you shake it all about. 
You do the Snowey Pokey and you turn yourself around. 
That’s what it’s all about!
Continue with additional verses: You put your left mitten in...
You put your right boot in...
You put your hat in...
You put your snowsuit in...
