Using the Classics to Teach Body Parts

Is there anything sweeter than your little one pointing to their nose, or wiggling those piggy toes, or sticking out their tongue to playfully connect? The ability for littles to identify these body parts is very important because it allows them to start developing a sense of body awareness. Here are some of our favorites:

  • A classic, Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes! This is a great song to get up, stretch, and get moving!
  • Eyes, Nose Cheeky Cheeky Chin! Lovingly lock eyes with your little one as you trace their face – this is a great connection song.
  • If You’re Happy and You Know It! Not only do you get to look at different body parts, but you can also introduce a variety of feelings and coping strategies.
  • Tony Chestnut! Talk about a tongue twister for the whole body!

Caregivers can use these super fun songs during play opportunities, dressing, and even when applying sunscreen!

What are some of your favorites?
