Theme: Snow Day Adventure


Let's dive in by exploring the cozy essentials for a cold winter's day with the song: “What Do I Need to Keep Me Warm?"


🎶 Tune: For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow


What do I need to keep me warm,

Keep me warm in the winter storm?

What do I need to keep me warm?

A hat on my head


What do I need to keep me warm,

Keep me warm in the winter storm?

What do I need to keep me warm?

A scarf around my neck


(Spoken or Sung)

A hat on my head

A scarf around my neck


What do I need to keep me warm,

Keep me warm in the winter storm?

What do I need to keep me warm?

A coat on my back


(Spoken or Sung)

A hat on my head

A scarf around my back

A coat on my back


Keep the song going adding in: mittens, boots, and a nice warm hug. Conclude with a spoken (or sung) repetition of our winter clothing:


A hat on my head

A scarf around my back

A coat on my back

Some mittens on my hands

Some boots on my feet

And a nice warm hug (wrap arms around self)


When introducing the song, involve the kids by using winter clothing visuals, encouraging their suggestions before revealing the visuals in the order they will be sung. Let's bring some musical joy into getting dressed for winter!
