Flannelboard: “Five Little Snowflakes”
One little snowflake with nothing to do,
Along came another and then there were…two!
Two little snowflakes laughing with me,
Along came another and then there were…three!
Three little snowflakes looking for some more,
Along came another and then there were…four!
Four little snowflakes dancing a jive,
Along came another and then there were…five!
Five little snowflakes, having so much fun!
Out came the sun, and then there were none!
Fingerplay: “Here’s a Hill”
Here’s a hill (tilt left arm so that it forms a hill)
And here’s a hill (tilt right arm so that it forms a hill)
All covered with snow (raise hands up, bring down in slow motion)
I’ll put on my coat (put coat on)
And jump on my sled (hold the rope of a sled)
And ZOOM, down the hill I will go! (clap hands, slid hands down)

Action Song: “Winter Hokey Pokey”
You put your mittens in, you take your mittens out
You put your boots in, you take your boots out
You put your hat in, you put your hat out
You put your coat in, you put your coat out

This was a craft that I got from KidsSoup. The kids had a ton of fun putting stickers all over their paper plates!
How It Went
This was a great storytime! I had a giant group since this was during Winter Break — so lots of siblings attended as well as a lot of families whose kids are now in preschool during my storytime! It was great to see a full rug; over forty people in attendance! (That is A LOT for my library.) The craft led to a lot of creativity and I was glad that I didn’t make an example so that parents forced their kids to make it “like Miss Katie’s!” Their favorite book was probably “Snow Happy!”
