Winter Preschool Songs and Fingerplays- Celebrate the Snow!

Singing preschool songs with your child is not only a great to entertain, but also to teach music to your baby, toddler, or preschooler. Your kids will love to sing, dance, and move (and will learn language skills, motor skills, and more!)

There are so many fun winter songs and fingerplays to do with your preschooler. Want to be creative? Use other songs and change the theme to snowman, snow, or other winter words.


The following are the song lyrics and motions for some of our favorite winter songs and winter fingerplays.




Five Little Snowmen
A great learning song / counting song!

Five little snowmen round and fat. (hold up 5 fingers)
Each one wearing a funny hat. (pretend to touch a hat on your head)
In the morning, out came the sun. (put your arms up into a circle over your head)
It looked down and melted one. (move your hands down in front of you to the ground)

Repeat with 4,3,2,1 snowmen.


Another Version of this preschool song is:
Five little snowmen fat. (hold up 5 fingers)
Each with a funny hat. (pretend to touch a hat on your head)
Out came the sun and melted one. (put your arms up into a circle over your head)
What a sad day was that? (rub your "tears" away)
Down, down, down, down... (slowly squat down to the ground)

Repeat with 4,3,2,1 snowmen.


Chubby Snowmen

A chubby little snowman had a carrot nose. (point to nose)
Along came a bunny and what do you suppose? (put 2 fingers up and "hop" them like a bunny)
That hungry little bunny, looking for his lunch (rub your belly)
Ate that snowman's carrot nose, (use your hand to "chomp" like a mouth)
Nibble, nibble, CRUNCH! (clap- 2 softer and 1 loud for "CRUNCH!")


10 Little Snowmen (to the tune of "Ten Little Indians")
Feel free to make up different verses or words. Hold fingers up for each number as you sing. Your kids will be counting to 10 before you know it!

One little, two little, three little snowmen;
Four little, five little, six little snowmen;
Seven little, eight little, nine little snowmen;
Ten little snowmen melt away.
