It’s wintertime. You want to celebrate and teach the kids about winter and snow at your child care center. A great element to include is a song! Here are a few you might consider as part of your winter or snow programming:
1. Frosty the Snowman: You can find the lyrics at www.metrolyrics.org
2. Sing I’m a Little Snowman to the tune of I’m a Little Teapot!
I’m a little snowman
Short and fat.
Here is my broom (pretend to hold a broom handle)
And here is my hat (touch your head).
When it’s cold & icy
I will stay;
When it’s hot
I will melt away (shrivel down to the floor)!
3. Let It Snow by Frank Sinatra (Never too young to acquaint them with classic crooners!)
Now that you have the kids warmed up with winter music, how about bringing in our Frosty’s Birthday Party Program! This comedy magic show is about Frosty the Snowman’s birthday and baking a cake for Frosty. At the end of the show, Frosty himself appears to meet and greet your kids. Here is more info on our Frosty’s Birthday Party Program.
Note: Thanks to The Storytime Handbook by Nina Schatzkamer Miller for the music suggestions. I highly recommend this book for child care center theme ideas.
