See the snowflakes falling down,
(Hold hands high, move fingers rapidly and bring hands to lap)
Softly, softly to the ground.
They make a blanket soft and white
To keep the flowers through winter’s night.
(Pat lap gently with hands as though patting snow on flower bed)
See the snowflakes on their way,
Twirling, swirling as they play.
(Same as first, but move arms around as brought down)
Is it not a pretty sight – when all the earth is dressed in white?
Talk about how some animals migrate south for the winter. Explain the concept of south by showing your child a map or globe.
