Do you have a favorite snowman craft?

How about a favorite snowman song?

Let's put the two together for some fun hands-on learning with the kids.

Crafts just seem to go better with a song, and this fun winter activity is no exception.

For many of us, a favorite song (and story) is Frosty the Snowman. (affiliate link)

Frosty is always popular with grownups and kids. But there are other fun snowman songs you can enjoy with your preschooler.
