Here’s a great winter game the children love playing over and over. It can be played either as a finger play or like this:
Sung to the tune of Five Little Ducks
Have all children standing in a row
All the little snowmen in a row,
All the little snowmen made of snow,
Out came the sun and it shone all day,
(Pick two children’s names)
And Kathryn and Joshua melted away.
These two children fall down and stay down.
Repeat until all children have fallen down. Then you can mop up all of the kid puddles with a broom or mop. They love being mopped up. You can also pick one child to be the teacher who picks the two children to fall. The child/teacher sings the last line on their own:
And Matthew and Kaley melted away.
Encourage all children to sing except for the last line where the children are being picked.
