Body Parts Activity

Time

  • 5 to 10 minutes

Materials

  • Nose tissues

Directions

There are so many body parts and so many new words to learn, but this activity makes it fun. As you call out body parts (ears, eyes, nose, knees, back, etc.), put the tissues on that spot on your toddler.

Extensions

  • Call out the names and have your toddler place the tissue on you.
  • Let your toddler call out the parts to you and check if you put the object on the right place. You may want to make a few obvious mistakes.
  • Use a stuffed animal or favorite doll to play the game, identifying their parts together.
