My Snowman Buddy


My Snowman Buddy

[15 Minutes]

When it's cold and dreary outside, stay warm inside with your child and act out this snowman fingerplay!

What to do:

  1. Spend some quality time with your child as you act out this fingerplay:
    I rolled a little snowman
    (roll hands up to head)
    From his head down to his toes.
    (sweep hands from head to feet)
    I gave him raisins for his eyes,
    (touch sides of temples)
    A carrot for his nose.
    (elongate nose with fingers)
    I put a hat upon his head
    (place pretend hat on head)
    And berries for a smile.
    (touch sides of cheeks and smile)
    I shook his frosty snowman hand
    (shake child's hand)
    And said, "Please play with me, my friend."
  2. If possible, plan an outdoor activity and make a real snowman with your child. Dress the snowman as is described in the fingerplay. Take a photo of your child with his snowman buddy for a lasting memory.

Let's Talk: Ideas to Explore Together.

  • Would you like to have a friend who is a snowman?
  • How would it feel to shake the hand of a snowman? Hot or cold? Wet or dry? Good or yucky?
