Sing a Song
I'm a Little Snowman
(Tune: I'm a Little Teapot)
I'm a little snowman short and fat.
Here is my scarf and here is my hat.
When the snow is falling come and play.
Build a snowman every day.

Bert is all dressed for winter.
Make your own paper dolls with paper winter clothes (hats, scarves, mittens) and have your child dress the doll. You can laminate these to make them last longer. You can even use a full body photo of your child as the paper doll. Doing this activity will help your child understand the basics of symbolism, a necessary skill to begin reading.
