Let's Put On Our Clothes
(Sung to: "Hickory, Dickory, Dock")
Hickory, dickory, dock, Let's put on our socks.
We'll walk around, Without a sound,
When we put on our socks.

Other verses:
Let's put on our coat, Let's put on our shirt, Let's put on our pants

Step-by-Step Dressing
Take out a large pile of your child's clothes, and mix them up.  Ask them to talk about which clothes go where and which clothes are needed to: play in the snow, the rain, inside, etc.

What Should I Put on?
Draw the outline of a boy or girl on a piece of paper.  Ask your child to add clothes and a background to the picture.  Ask them to add the name of the boy/girl.

Indoor Snowman
Get out the snowpants, boots, mittens and hats.  Ask your child to try and put on as many clothes as they can or dress a brother or sister as if they were making a snowman!
