I did a video "just for kids" where I say these rhymes and tell the story.

Toys and fashions come and go, but snowmen are never out of style.  They might melt, but they will never go away!

Five Little Snowmen Finger Play
Five little snowmen fat.                           (Hold up five fingers.)
Each wore a different hat.
Along came the sun and melted one.     (Bend down one finger.)
Now, what do you think about that?

Four little snowmen fat…                        (Hold up four fingers.)


Cut snowmen out of felt as shown.  Place a different colored hat on each one.  Remove one snowman as each verse is said. 

*Place the flannel board and snowmen in a center so children can practice saying the rhyme and make sets.

*Make a simple flannel board by gluing a piece of felt to the front of a file folder.  Staple the sides.  Store pieces inside and glue a copy of the poem to the back.

Snowman Puppet
Cut a snowman out of heavy paper and decorate with markers.  Cut a circle for the nose the width of your index finger.  Cut another circle the size of your index finger out of a cup.  Match up holes and tape the snowman in place.  Put your hand in the cup and stick your index finger through the hole as you repeat the rhyme below.

A chubby little snowman
Had a carrot for a nose.
Along came a bunny
And what do you suppose?
That hungry little bunny
Looking for some lunch
Ate that little snowman’s nose
Nibble, nibble, crunch!  (Slowly pull your finger back into the cup.)

Flo The Snow Lady
*Cut a snowman shape out of the front of a file folder.  Decorate like a snow lady.  Insert orange, red, blue, green, yellow, purple, and white paper.  Glue the words to the rhyme on the back.  As you tell or sing the chant remove the paper to reveal a new color.


(Tune:  "Happy Birthday")
My name is flow.
I'm made out of snow.
I can change my color
when I twitch my nose.

Make Flo orange, red, blue, green, yellow, purple, and end with white.

I can be many 
colors it's true,
but being myself
is the best thing to do!
