The Snow-Key Pokey!

As we brace for Snowmaggedon 2015 here in the North East of the USA, I figured there was no better time to do the Snow-key Pokey.

Yep – that’s a winter themed Hokey Pokey. Put on your coats and hats, scarves, mittens and boots and join me! A fun way to celebrate the snow without having to go outside and brave the blizzard! ;)

And if you’re seeing this post on Monday night 1/26 or the morning of 1/27 -

I’ll be holding a live Online Sing-Along at 10:30 am EST on Tuesday 1/27 on Concert Window. Pay-what-you-like, grab a shaker, your kids and let’s have some fun! Here’s the link to join: https://www.concertwindow.com/missnina

Stay warm and safe wherever you are & have a great week!


A Chubby Little Snowman

Let’s celebrate winter (may as well – it’s here to stay for a bit! ;) ) with a fun rhyme and finger play.

At first I thought this one had too many motions. But with each group I taught last week, I saw that the amount of movements in it held their attention and challenged them to learn it.

I was so impressed by my Friday class, I asked a couple of my friends, Scarlett and Teddy, to be a part of this week’s video!

Join us for this fun rhyme. I’ll post the words here an you can learn the moves with the video. Enjoy!

A Chubby Little Snowman
Had a carrot nose.
Along came a bunny,
and what do you suppose?
That hungry little bunny
looking or his lunch
ate the snowman’s nose
with a munch, munch, crunch!

*New*! The First Miss Nina’s Craft/Activity Video

Hey Friends!

Been wanting to do one of these for a long time – a craft video!

This craft/activity, sponge numbers (or letters, or shapes), is prepped by the grown up, but enjoyed for hours, days and weeks by the children. Just ask Piper! :)

I explain it all in the video, so I won’t take up too much time “talking” here. But this craft activity creates something that can accompany your video watching, add some fun to bath time, and even be used for additional crafts!

Check it all out above. And then, when you have your sponge numbers complete, click below to watch my

Number Song Video Playlist!

It’s 15 videos running 54 minutes. So let your little one enjoy while you get some work done! :)

Have a great week and I’ll see you next time!

1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (I Once Caught A Fish Alive…)

Another number and counting song, and another song inspired by Piper and the videos she loves (in this case, The Mother Goose Club!)

This is a cute song where we count to 10, but not in a way that is too repetitive or too long, and meanwhile there’s a little conversational story that goes on. Cuteness all the way around!

Thanks for watching and have a fantastic week!
