This flannel board I copied from Wendy at Flannel Board Fun. The set has pieces for articles of clothing for cold weather as well as for rain. I’ve included the cold portion here. It is sung to For He’s A Jolly Good Fellow. Since the tune is simple, is is easy for kids to pick up on and join in.

Snowflake Snowflake by Carole Peterson
This works great with scarves. We twirl them, let them softly fall, and follow the actions of the music.
We’re Marching In the Snow by Carole Peterson
March, skate, run, roll, and tip-toe in the snow.
Winter Hokey Pokey
There is no music for this. We sing in a cappella as we dance along.
You put your mittens in, you take your mittens out
You put your boots in, you take your boots out
You put your hat in, you put your hat out
You put your coat in, you put your coat out

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.
