Best 20 Winter Songs For Preschoolers

All the stars of winter children’s songs are here: gloves, hats, snowballs, teddy bears, snowflakes, carrot noses, penguins and birds that shiver from the cold. These are all hidden in easy verses that preschoolers can sing at school or with their parents, grandparents, and siblings.

Let’s admit it, what we all expect at Christmas is to dance a cute hokey-pokey like penguins with our nieces or nephews in kindergarten! Your wish can come true here and now, as in the list below you will find at least two Christmas dances that will make you feel like an infant again – just look for “Winter Hokey Pokey” or “Penguin Dance“. Then you can look for some lost animals in the winter landscape, singing “Adventure Through The Snow“. And, of course, do not forget to make your own snowman: “Let’s Build A Snowman” and “Let’s Build A Snowman In Our Front Yard” will help you.

In any case, whatever it is that you decide to do, don’t forget your gloves. “Mittens and Gloves“, “Winder Mitten Song” and “Winter Clothing Song” will help little friends take their essentials with them before leaving home or class.

In the list below you will find videos and lyrics of the songs so that nothing is missing to sing with the preschoolers. If you want even more winter songs for slightly older kids, take a look at our curated collection Winter Songs for Kids To Sing Or To Listen To, as well. If it’s beginning to look like Christmas, our Christmas songs for kids will surely come in handy, too! Have a great winter!

The North Wind Doth Blow

Even before humans, animals and birds realize that winter is coming, looking for ways to protect themselves from the cold wind and the snow.

The north wind doth blow,
And we shall have snow,
And what will the robin do then,
poor thing?

He’ll sit in the barn,
And keep himself warm
And hide his head under his wing,
poor thing!

Winter Song

Remember to wear warm clothes before going out to build the snowman. Afterwards, a warm soup or a hot chocolate in the company of grandpa is just what you need!

Hat, scarf, gloves and coat
boots and jumper, it is cold
Hot chocolate with my friends
Let’s build a snowman
Snow is in the air
Snow is in the air
in the air
Shalalalala, it’s winter
Shalalalala, it’s cold
Shalalalala,it’s freezing
Close the door
Shalalalala,, it’s snowy
Shalalalala, it’s cold
Shalalalala, it’s winter time once more

Hot soup my granny makes
we watch tv by the fireplace
Reindeer everywhere
Look at the window!
Snow is in the air
Snow is in the air
in the air

Have fun!

Winter Hokey Pokey

Time for exercise! As we all like the tune “Hokey Pokey”, we dance and sing to its melody.

You put your right mitten in,
You take your right mitten out.
You put your right mitten in,

Winter Season Song

Another familiar tune, “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” is the basis for singing about the Winter that has come. We will dress warmly, but the trees will be stripped of their leaves and wait for Spring to grow tall and bloom again.

Winter’s here now, winter’s here now.
Get your coats, get your scarves.
Have you made a snowman? Have you made a snowman?
Socks and boots, woolly gloves.

Winter’s here now, winter’s here now.
Shorter days, longer nights.
Plants and trees stop growing, when it’s cold and snowing.
Stars are bright, chilly nights.

Winter’s here now, winter’s here now.
Rain and ice, windy storms.
Animals are sleeping, underground and keeping,
Safe and warm, safe and warm.

It’s Winter!

With your dog, or with your dog, one thing is certain: there is no child who does not want to go outside and play when it snows. A fast and rhythmic song to run and be happy!

Brrr I’m so cold. It’s snowing.
I have a little doll. Let’s go and play!

Brrr. It’s winter.
Brrr. I’m cold.
Brrr. It’s winter
And I’m playing with my doll.

We are ice skating.
We are skating on the ice.
We can see a snowman.
This is very nice.
We love going skiing.
We love sledding too.
We love to see the snowflakes.
And we love to build igloos!

Adventure Through The Snow

How many animals will we discover in this song? Listen or sing the lyrics to the kids and ask them how many animals they hear in it. Then sing all together.

On an adventure through the snow we found
We found a polar bear hanging around
We found a polar bear,
we found a polar bear
We found a polar bear in the snow

On an adventure through the snow we found
We found a walrus hanging around
We found a walrus, we found a walrus
We found a walrus in the snow

On an adventure through the snow we found
We found a penguin hanging around
We found a penguin, we found a penguin
We found a penguin in the snow

On an adventure through the snow we found
We found a seal hanging around
We found a seal, we found a seal
We found a seal in the snow

On an adventure through the snow we found
We found a reindeer hanging around
We found a reindeer, we found a reindeer
We found a reindeer in the snow

On an adventure through the snow we found
We found an arctic fox hanging around
We found an arctic fox, we found an arctic fox
We found an arctic fox in the snow

Mittens and Gloves

Try making snowballs with your bare hands once, and you’ll never forget to put on gloves again! Who would want their little hands to freeze and hurt from the cold?

Mittens and gloves, gloves and mittens,
Soft and warm, just like kittens,
Keep my fingers nice and snug,
Cozy as a big bear hug!

I will not forget them
when it’s really chilly.
I would be too freezy.
That would just be silly!

Mittens and gloves, gloves and mittens,
Soft and warm, just like kittens,
Keep my fingers nice and snug,
Cozy as a big bear hug!
Mittens and gloves!

Little Snowflake

A beautiful little song, calm and relaxing like the flakes falling slowly from the sky.

Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake.
Little snowflake falling from the sky.
Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake.
Falling, falling, falling, falling, falling,
falling, falling, falling, falling…falling on my head.

Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake.
Little snowflake falling from the sky.
Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake.
Falling, falling, falling, falling, falling,
falling, falling, falling, falling…falling on my nose.

Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake.
Little snowflake falling from the sky.
Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake.
Falling, falling, falling, falling, falling,
falling, falling, falling, falling…falling in my hand.

Falling on my head.
Falling on my nose.
Falling in my hand.

Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake…

I’m A Little Snowman

Τhis little song is ideal to sing to your babies after you’ve dressed them warmly to go out. Tickle their tummies, pinch their cheeks, honk their little noses, and make them laugh!

I’m a little snowman,
look at me.
These are my buttons, 1 2 3.
These are my eyes and this is my nose.
I wear a hat and scarf.
Brrr…it’s cold!

Penguin Dance

Move your body and finally learn to distinguish left from right! Jack Hartmann is dancing with some cute penguins!

Have you ever seen a penguin come to tea
When you look at me a penguin you will see Chorus
Penguins attention, penguins begin

Right flipper
Have you ever seen a penguin come to tea
When you look at me a penguin you will see
Right flipper, Left flipper

Have you ever seen a penguin come to tea
When you look at me a penguin you will see
Right flipper, Left flipper, Right leg

Have you ever seen a penguin come to tea
When you look at me a penguin you will see
Right flipper, Left flipper, Right leg, Left leg

Have you ever seen a penguin come to tea
When you look at me a penguin you will see
Right flipper, Left flipper, Right leg, Left leg, Head

Have you ever seen a penguin come to tea
When you look at me a penguin you will see

When you look at me a penguin you will see
Right flipper, Left flipper, Right leg, Left leg, Head, Turn around, Penguin sound

Have you ever seen a penguin come to tea
When you look at me a penguin you will see
Penguins Attention!

Snowflakes, Snowflakes

Once again we borrow the tune from “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” to dance around quietly, like snowflakes. You can instruct the children to follow the lyrics and slowly lower their body until they lie on the floor.

Snowflakes, snowflakes dance around,
Snowflakes, snowflakes touch the ground.
Snowflakes, snowflakes in the air,
Snowflakes, snowflakes everywhere.
Snowflakes, snowflakes dance around,
Snowflakes, snowflakes touch the ground.

Snowflakes, snowflakes dance around,
Snowflakes, snowflakes touch the ground.
Snowflakes, snowflakes in the air,
Snowflakes, snowflakes everywhere.
Snowflakes, snowflakes dance around,
Snowflakes, snowflakes touch the ground.

I’m A Little Snowman

A variation of the well-known “I’m a Little Teapot”. We pretend we’re snowmen and follow the verses with the corresponding moves.

‘I’m a little snowman, short and round’
Made from little snowflakes that fell to the ground
‘I have 2 eyes and a carrot for a nose’
Oh I’m the happiest little snowman, I know

I’m a little snowman, short and round
Made from little snowflakes that fell to the ground
With a scarf to keep me warm and a hat on my head
Oh I am the happiest little snowman, I know

I’m a little snowman, short and round
Made from little snowflakes that fell to the ground
I have 3 buttons, 1,2 and 3
Oh I’m the happiest little snowman, I know

We are little snowmen, short and round
made from little snowflakes that fell to the ground
We have two eyes and a carrot for a nose
Oh, we’re the happiest little snowmen we know!
Oh, we’re the happiest little snowmen we know!

Counting Snowflakes

Let’s count until 20. Again and again. What else can we count besides snowflakes? How many people does it take to count to 20 on our hands?

Well, I’m just sitting outside,
counting the snowflakes one two three four five.
Six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve.
Thirteen fourteen fifteen sixteen seventeen eighteen nineteen,
twenty little snowflakes on the ground.

Let’s count!
One two three four five six seven,
eight nine ten eleven.
Twelve thirteen fourteen fifteen sixteen seventeen eighteen nineteen,
twenty!
Yeah!

Well, I’m just sitting outside,
counting the snowflakes one two three four five.
Six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve.
Thirteen fourteen fifteen sixteen seventeen eighteen nineteen,
twenty little snowflakes on the ground.

Lot’s of little snowflakes coming down.

Winter Mittens Song

We know the tune from “If You’re Happy And You Know It“. In this variation we sing about the primary colors.

If you’re wearing red mittens, clap your hands
If you’re wearing red mittens, clap your hands
If you’re wearing red mittens, red, red, red mittens
clap your hands

If you’re wearing blue mittens, stomp your feet
If you’re wearing blue mittens, stomp your feet
If you’re wearing blue mittens, blue, blue, blue mittens
stomp your feet

If you’re wearing yellow mittens, shake your head
If you’re wearing yellow mittens, shake your head
If you’re wearing yellow mittens, yellow, yellow, yellow mittens
shake your head

If you’re wearing green mittens, bend your knees
If you’re wearing green mittens, bend your knees
If you’re wearing green mittens, green, green, green mittens
bend your knees

If you’re wearing orange mittens, tap your nose
If you’re wearing orange mittens, tap your nose
If you’re wearing orange mittens, orange, orange, orange mittens
tap your nose

If you’re wearing purple mittens, touch your toes
If you’re wearing purple mittens, touch your toes
If you’re wearing purple mittens, purple, purple, purple mittens
touch your toes

Let’s Build A Snowman

You can make snowmen anywhere, even on a piece of paper. Just follow the instructions.

First comes the body
Then comes the head
A stovepipe hat
And a scarf of red

Pebbles for the eyes and a carrot nose
Rocks for the mouth in two short rows
Look all around at the snow in the air
You can make snowmen everywhere!

Did You Ever See A Penguin?

You may have already danced to the song “Did you ever see a Lassie?“. This time dance a little funnier. Flap your wings and walk like penguins!

Did you ever see a penguin, a penguin, a penguin?
Did you ever see a penguin?
Waddle this way and that?
Waddle this way and that way,
Waddle this way and that way
Did you ever see a penguin?
Waddle this way and that!

Did you ever see a penguin, a penguin, a penguin?
Did you ever see a penguin?
Swim this way and that?
Swim this way and that way,
Swim this way and that way
Did you ever see a penguin?
Swim this way and that!

Did you ever see a penguin, a penguin, a penguin?
Did you ever see a penguin?
Waddle this way and that?
Waddle this way and that way,
Waddle this way and that way
Did you ever see a penguin?
Waddle this way and that!

Let’s Build A Snowman (In Our Front Yard)

How many balls does it take to make a snowman? With this simple song everything becomes easier.

Let’s build a snowman
In our front yard.
Let’s build a snowman.
It isn’t too hard.

Roll a small ball for the top.
Roll a medium ball for the middle.
Roll a big ball for the bottom.

Put the big ball on the bottom.
Put on the medium ball.
Put on the small ball.

Let’s build a snowman
In our front yard.
Let’s build a snowman.
It’s not too hard.

Put on the eyes.
Put on the nose.
Put on the mouth.
Almost finished!

Put on the arms.
Put on the scarf.
Put on the hat.
Look! A snowman.

We built a snowman
In our front yard.
We build a snowman.
It wasn’t too hard.

Five Little Snowmen

Is the sun out and has the snow started melting? Countdown time, as one by one the snowmen we made disappear…

Five little snowmen standing in a row.
Each had a hat and a big red bow.
Out came the sun and it shone all day.
One little snowman melted away.

Four little snowmen standing in a row.
Each had a hat and a big red bow.
Out came the sun and it shone all day.
One little snowman melted away.

Three little snowmen standing in a row.
Each had a hat and a big red bow.
Out came the sun and it shone all day.
One little snowman melted away.

Two little snowmen standing in a row.
Each had a hat and a big red bow.
Out came the sun and it shone all day.
One little snowman melted away.

One little snowmen standing all alone.
He had a hat and a big red bow.
Out came the sun and it shone all day.
And the one little snowman melted away.
Now all the little snowmen melted away!

Winter Clothing Song

We learn to protect our bodies by wearing appropriate clothing. Another beautiful and cute little song for our little friends by Emily.

Do you want to build a snowman?
Come on! Let’s go and play!
It’s winter time so it’s a cold and snowy day.

Oh no! I’m shivering,
I’m turning blue,
It’s too cold to play
But what can I do?

Just put on your winter clothes!
OK! But what are those?

Put on your hat,
I’ll put on my hat,
To keep my head warm.

Put on your scarf,
I’ll put on my scarf,
To keep my neck warm.

Put on your gloves,
Put on your gloves,
To keep your hands warm.

Put on your coat,
I’ll put on my coat,
To keep my whole body warm.

And don’t forget your boots!

When It’s Cold

Just before we go, we rock! Move your body with Laurie Berkner!

Brrrr!
Oh man! It’s so cold isn’t it Brady?
Yeah, it’s freezing! Woo!
What do you think we should do?
I don’t know, put on some mittens?
Good idea! Oh and what about this?

When it’s cold
I’ve got to move my body
Move my body
When it’s c-c-c-c-cold

When it’s cold
I’ve got to move my body
Move my body
When it’s c-c-c-c-cold

Then I close my eyes and start to
Wiggle, wiggle as fast as I can
Wiggle with my arms, my legs, my hands,
My feet, my sides, my head
I’ve got to wiggle

Wiggle like a snake
Wiggle like an eel
Now I really know how a little worm feels
M-m-m-m-move I’ve got to wiggle

Cause when it’s cold
I’ve got to move my body
Move my body
When it’s c-c-c-c-cold

Yes, when it’s cold, cold, cold
I’ve got to move my body
Move my body
When it’s c-c-c-c-cold

Then I close my eyes and start to
Jump, jump, as fast as I can
Jump with my arms, my legs, my hands,
My feet, my sides, my head
I’ve got to jump

Jump like a rabbit
Jump like a frog
Jump into the river from my favorite log
M-m-m-m-move I’ve got to jump

Cause when it’s cold
I’ve got to move my body
Move my body
When it’s c-c-c-c-cold

When it’s cold
I’ve got to move my body
Move my body
When it’s c-c-c-c-cold

Then I close my eyes and start to
Spin, spin around
Spin around, round, round
Spin around, till I fall down
Spin, spin around

Ooh ooh ooh …
