On the First Day of Winter

On the First Day of Winter” by Denise Fleming

Looking for a catchy song to sing with children to kick off winter? Well, I am going to spoil the surprise by listing all ten things so you can decide if this is a good fit for you:

“On the tenth day of winter my best friend gave to me: 10 salty peanuts, 9 big black buttons, 8 orange berries, 7 maple leaves, 6 tiny twigs, 5 birdseed pockets, 4 prickly pine cones, 3 striped scarves, 2 bright blue mittens, and a red cap with a gold snap!”

What does this list mean you might ask? On the first day of winter, (and if there is snow), you can build a snowman using these items!
