Eyes, Nose, Hands & Toes

What to do:

  1. When changing diapers or just sitting before pick-up time at the end of the day, take time to name body parts for children. For example, say “Here’s my nose…here’s your nose,” while pointing to each person’s nose.
  2. As children get older, ask them to point to body parts.
  3. Add more names of parts as children are able to say them – ankle, heel, elbow, shoulder, thigh, knee, etc.
  4. Children love learning new words and saying them over and over.
  5. Play this game with a large group or when you have quiet time with each child that you care for. It doesn’t have to be planned or structured time and takes no longer than a couple of minutes.
