A Chubby Little Snowman

I've awakened to find the earth blanketed in snow three times this week. And each time it has melted by noon. We've had only one or maybe two storms that have left enough snow to make a snowman. To bring snowmen into our lives, here's a little verse that I have adapted/conflated to make a bit of a story. It is lovely done with finger puppets or figures, one for the snowman, one for the bunny. A silk over the hands makes it even better. It can be done as a finger play as well.

A chubby little snowman
Had a carrot nose
Along came a bunny
And what do you suppose?

That hungry little bunny was looking for some lunch
He saw that snowman's carrot nose
And went nibble, nibble, crunch!

That chubby little bunny hopped into the woods.
He wiggled his ears as a good bunny should.

He hopped by a squirrel, he hopped by a tree.
He hopped by a bird and he hopped by me.

He stared at the squirrel. He stared at the tree.
He stared at the bird and he made faces at me.


Be sure to put your thumbs to your ear lobes and encourage some fun face making with this one.

  1. My 9 year old used to tell this when she was 3! I suppose it's time to teach her little sister! Thanks for the reminder.
