Create Your Own Storytime: January 12th Snow Story time Books, Songs, and Activities You Can Do At Home

Couldn't come to storytime today? No need to worry. You can create the experience at home using the storytime we did today.


Hooray for Snow by Kazuo Iwamura
Sam the Snowman by Susan Winget
Snow Friends by M. Christina Butler

Movement Activity

Snowy Pokey (Tune: "Hokey Pokey")

You put your right mitten in, You take your right mitten out,
You put your right mitten in and you shake it all about.
You do the snowy pokey and you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about.

Continue with additional verses:

You put you left mitten in
You put your scarf in
You put your right boot in

You put your left boot in
You put your hat in
You put your snowself in

Poem (By: Jennifer Hatcher )

Blizzard the snowman was a dapper fellow
with a big black hat with a star on his head.

A crunchy carrot for his nose
looks very yummy to all that he knows.

Blue diamond buttons completed the ensemble
which was quite fun and neat.

With two twig arms he waves to you
and says quite simply how do you do?

Movement Activity

Dance Like Snowflakes (Tune: "Are you Sleeping")

Dance like snowflakes, Dance like snowflakes
In the air, In the air,
Whirling, Twirling snowflakes, Whirling, Twirling snowflakes
Here and there, Here and there.
