Bumping Up and Down on My Little Blue Sled
from: Jbrary
Bumping up and down in my little blue sled
Bumping up and down in my little blue sled
Bumping up and down in my little blue sled
Won’t you be my darling?

Snow is coming down on my little blue sled
Waving to my friend on my little blue sled

Jack Frost’s Nose
from: Verona Story Time
Where did you get that little red nose? touch nose
Jack Frost kissed it I suppose. pinch nose
He kissed it once one kiss on nose
He kissed it twice two kisses
Poor little nose, it’s as cold as ice wiggle nose

Snow Is Falling Down
from:King County Library System
Snow is falling down, shhhhh.
Snow is falling down, shhhhh.
Slowly, slowly, very slowly,
Snow is falling down, shhhhh.

Watch the Snowflakes
from: Jen In the Library
tune: “Frere Jacques”
Watch the snowflakes, watch the snowflakes flutter hands, starting above head
Floating down, floating down bring hands down a little with each line
Oh so very slowly, oh so very slowly
All the way down
Down to the ground. touch the ground

Verses:
Oh so very quickly wiggle fingers faster
From oh so very high stand up on tiptoes
Oh so very twirly twirl hands round and around each other

Music

Snowflake, Snowflake by Carole Peterson
We pull out our scarves to wave along to the song. At the appropiate moments we will touch the ground, our noses, and toes with the scarves.
