3. Sing a Song: "I'm a Little Snowflake"

Sing a quick song to the tune of “I’m a Little Teapot”. Draw a snowman with colored markers on a big piece of paper while you sing:

I’m a little snowman short and fat;

Here are my buttons, here is my hat.

When it starts to warm up, I can’t stay;

‘Cause I will slowly melt away.

4. Activity: Sensory Bin

Ask your kids to help you make a winter sensory bin. You can fill a box with cotton balls, blue and white pom poms, white beans or rice, marshmallows, jingle bells and glass pebbles. Put in lots of cups, spoons and scoops for plenty of mixing and pouring.

5. Sing a Goodbye Song

See you next time! Wrap up your storytime and sing along with our librarians to "Skinnamarink".
