Anatomy for Kids
- Butcher paper or plain newsprint paper
- Paints, felt pens, or crayons
Trace your child's body as she lies face-down or face-up on the paper. Tape the paper in place on the floor. Have your child proceed to draw her body parts onto the outline of her body where they belong. Start with obvious parts: nose, ears, fingernails, teeth, hair, and belly button. More difficult parts might include: elbows, kneecaps, chin, and heels. For older children, you could label the inner organs: heart, lungs, kidneys, and liver.
