A Chubby Little Snowman

Action Song for Young Children
Actions and Photos from Hugh Hanley

This chant, with actions and photographs, is from Hugh Hanley's Another Circle of Songs.


A chubby little snowman   
Hold your arms in a circle to make a fat belly .
Had a carrot nose.
Point your forefinger out from your nose.
Along came a bunny.
Make a bunny with your fingers. Make it hop.
And what do you suppose?
Turn palms upward and shrug in disbelief.
That hungry little bunny
Rub your tummy.
Looking for his lunch
Shade your eyes, as if looking into the distance.
Ate that snowman's carrot nose
Make a bunny with one hand and a carrot with the other.
Nibble, nibble, CRUNCH!
Make the bunny eat the carrot with two small bites and a final big bite.


 Hugh Hanley's Circle of Songs CD/Songbook sets were developed to promote adult/child interactive singing either in pairs or small groups. Children also enjoy singing these songs by themselves. Each set contains songs and activities that are appropriate and great fun for children ages two to seven years and for adults who would like to sing with them. The songs and activities are presented slowly and simply on the recording to help participants learn the songs and to invite participation.
     Early childhood educators know that the music that speaks to the heart of the young child is presented slowly and simply. Their favorite songs are the ones that they can join in on and make their own; songs that are so simple and so much fun that even a grown-up can sing them.
