Songs

Mitten Song
Sung to: The Farmer in the Dell
The mitten in the snow
The mitten in the snow
Help us please so we won't freeze!
The mitten in the snow.

The mole squeezes in
The mole squeezes in
Help us please so we won't freeze
The mole squeezes in!

Continue verses with each animal in the order they entered The Mitten in the story.

The bear sneezed us out
The bear sneezed us out
Oh no, now we might freeze
The bear sneezed us out!

Mitten Song
Thumbs in the thumb hole
Fingers all together
This is the song
We sing in mitten weather
It doesn't matter
If they're made of wool or leather
Thumbs in the thumb hole
And fingers go together.
