Mittens
Mittens are warm,
Mittens are grand,
Mittens are like shoes for my hands.

Mittens

Stripes or dots or sparkling white,
Mittens in winter fit just right.
Wool and cotton, maybe leather-
Mittens warm us in cold weather.
In rainbow colors and darkest black,
Mittens fit in a pocket or in your pack.
Thumbs alone, fingers together,
We love mittens in cold, cold weather.

 

Warm Mittens

I wiggle my left hand,
I wiggle my right,
inside of my mittens,
so warm and so tight.

I wiggle my pinkie.
I wiggle my thumb,
so when I make snowballs,
my hands don't get numb.

 


The Mitten Song

"Thumbs in the thumb-place,
Fingers all together!"
This is the song
We sing in mitten-weather.
When it is cold,
It doesn't matter whether
Mittens are wool,
Or made of finest leather.
This is the song
We sing in mitten-weather:
"Thumbs in the thumb-place,
Fingers all together!"

Red Mittens

Is there anything nicer
Than red woolly mittens
As fluffy and soft
As a blanket of kittens?

 

Red mittens to keep
My hands warm as toast
On cold winter days
When I skate or coast.

 

Each Mitten has a Mate
(to the tune of 
"The Farmer in the Dell")

Each mitten has a mate, has a mate.
Each mitten has a mate, has a mate.
Can (child's name) find the pair?
(He/She) is looking here and there.
Can (child's name) find the mate.
Find the mate?

 

The Short Life of A Mitten
I'm sliding on the driveway,
I'm falling off my sled,
I'm rolling down the hillside,
I'm standing on my head.

When playing in a snow bank
it's hard to have control.
I wonder how my mittens
got such a large hole.

 


Mittens

Mittens for the snow time
When the world is white.
Mittens for my two hands,
Mittens left and right.
Mittens left and right.
Mittens with a thumb place,
Mittens make me feel like
A bug inside a rug!

 

 

The Winter Pokey
You put your right mitten in,
You take your right mitten out.
You put your right mitten in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the winter pokey (shiver)
And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!

You put your left mitten in...
You put your right boot in...
You put your left boot in...
Your put your hat (head) in...
You put your snowsuit (whole body) in...
