Whether you live in a place where snowfall is an everyday thing, or a place where it never snows, this Snowflake Song is perfect to sing when you’re expecting wintery weather, or just wishing for it!
Listen on a Winter’s evening,
Can you hear the snow?
Snowflakes fall so silently,
So, how d’you even know?
In the morning from your window,
It is such a sight!
Everything is clean and sparkling,
Glistening, glistening white!
(sing to the same tune as ‘Pitter Patter’)
Print off the free sheet music below, and you’ll find the simple five finger tune is very easy to play either on a piano keyboard or xylophone. In fact it’s simple rhythm and repetitive pattern can also be a handy little finger strengthening exercise.
Children love making paper snowflakes, and it’s a perfect activity to go with this Snowflake song.
All you have to do is fold a square piece of paper in half, then into a quarter and then finally over into a triangle. Then holding the corner of the triangle that would be the centre of the original square, cut your snowflake design into the folded paper layers on the outer corners. It’s very easy to make beautiful snowflake decorations to hang on a thread or stick on the window and each one is completely unique.
