Songs and Fingerplays: 

Snow Hokey Pokey 
(or the Winter Pokey) 

You put your right mitten in.
You put your right mitten out.
You put your right mitten in,
And then you shake it all about.
You do the snow hokey pokey,
and you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!

Other verses:
Left mitten
Right boot
Left boot

Mitten Rhyme

Thumbs in the thumb place
Fingers all together
This is how we put our mittens on
In the chilly weather
