Five Little Snowmen
5 little snowmen all in a row
Each with a hat
And a big red bow.
Out came the sun
And it stayed all day
And one of those snowmen melted away.

Chubby Little Snowman
A chubby little snowman
Had a carrot nose (Point to nose)
Along came a bunny (Make a bunny with 2 fingers)
And what do you suppose?
That hungry little bunny
Looking for his lunch
Ate that little snowmanís nose (Pretend bunny eats your nose)
Nibble nibble crunch!
Iím a Friendly Snow Pal
(Sung to ďIím a Little Tea PotĒ)
Iím a friendly snow pal, big and fat,
Here is my tummy, and here is my hat.
Iím a happy fellow, hereís my nose,
Iím all snow from my head to my toes.
have two eyes so I can see,
All the snow falling down on me.
When the weatherís cold, Iím strong and tall,
But when itís warm, I get very small
