Mitten Pair Song

White Song- Frog Street Press

White Song
(Tune: Little Brown Jug)
W-h-i-t-e
That spells white.
Sing with me.
Milk is white, and so is glue.
Ghosts are white,
And they say BOO!
W-h-i-t-e
That spells white,
Sing with me.
The clouds are above
The snow below,
Santa’s beard,

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Ten Little Snowmen

Ten Little Snowmen riding on a sled,

One fell off and bumped his head.

Frosty called the doctor and the doctor said,

“No more snowmen riding on the sled!”

Art Exploration/Dramatic Play (Tuesdays):

Snow painting – We might have to hold off on this one until next year, but it’s too fun not to include in the plan!

Epsom salt snowflakes

Mitten Handprint

Science/Sensory (Wednesdays):

Winter Sensory Bin

Cloud Dough – I used olive oil instead of baby oil in case Fairley eats it. :) She has a thing for eating playdoh right now.

Winter Snow Walk

Math (Thursdays):

Exploring spheres – snowmen (Original idea- using styrofoam balls of different sizes) Or you can use three different sized boxes (Mommy School idea) and explore cubes!
