I’m walking in the snow, I’m walking in the snow.
Leaving footprints as I go.
I’m walking in the snow.

The other verses follow with marching, skipping running sliding, and sitting.

Feltboard: Build a Snowman. Have the pieces ready for the children to find or hand out before starting the rhyme.

Have you seen the snowman?
The snowman, the snowman.
Have you seen the snowman?
Who lives in our front yard?

He has two brown potato eyes,
Potato eyes, potato eyes,
He has two brown potato eyes,
And lives in our front yard.

He has an orange carrot nose,
Carrot nose, carrot nose,
He has an orange carrot nose,
And lives in our front yard.

He has a bright red berry smile,
Berry smile, berry smile,
He has a bright red berry smile,
And lives in our front yard.

He has a long blue woolen scarf,
Woolen scarf, woolen scarf,
He has a long blue woolen scarf,
And lives in our front yard.

He has two yellow broomstick arms,
Broomstick arms, broomstick arms,
He has two yellow broomstick arms,
And lives in our front yard.

He has green mittens for his hands,
For his hands, for his hands,
He has green mittens for his hands,
And lives in our front yard.

He has a big wide purple belt,
Purple belt, purple belt,
He has a big wide purple belt,
And lives in our front yard.

Have you seen the snowman?
The snowman, the snowman.
Have you seen the snowman?
Who lives in our front yard?
