Try these ideas with your group.

  Bring in one or more sleds for your children to use for indoor dramatic play or outdoor snow fun.
  Use a small laundry basket lined with a blanket for a sled. Attach a rope handle and let the children give stuffed toys a ride by pulling them around the room.    
  Cut the sides of a large cardboard carton to resemble the sides of a horse-drawn sleigh. Invite the children to paint the sleigh any color they wish. Encourage them to take pretend rides in their sleigh and describe what they experience. For added fun, sing "Over the River and Through the Woods." Credit Preschool Express


Tune: "The Farmer in the Dell"

We're sledding in the snow.
We're sledding in the snow.
Up we climb, then down we go.
We're sledding in the snow.
Liz Ryerson Preschool Express
Encourage your children to make sledding movements with their hands as they sing.

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 snow 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: “Dance Like Snowflakes”
Dance like snowflakes,
Dance like snowflakes
In the air, in the air
Whirling, twirling snowflakes
Whirling, twirling snowflakes
Here and there, everywhere

Action Song: “Winter Hokey Pokey”
You put your mitten in, you take your mitten 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
