Games & Outdoors : My Body

Kid Connections added 9-1-01 Original Author Unknown 

Each child finds a partner. As you call out body parts, each child connects with his partner. 'Toe to toe! Elbow to elbow! Knee to knee!' Then try calling 'finger to shoulder' or 'lips to ear' or 'heel to back.' Experiment with connecting cheeks, thighs and knuckles. The children will watch and learn as they successfully bond in these 'kid connections.' They will discover more and more body parts and all the ways these different parts move, bend, twist, turn.

Mirror Anatomy added 9-1-01 Original Author Unknown 

Children can practice naming the parts of their bodies while looking in a mirror. They will also enjoy practicing different facial expressions. Observing how they look when they have different feelings inside helps children to understand the Body Language of others.


Body Match up added 9-1-01 Original Author Unknown 

Beat a drum, or ring a bell...as you say "You walk and you walk and you walk and you stop!" after you stop you call out a body part . "Hands!" then the children match their hands to those of another child. You can change the action: run, hop, skip, crawl and body part, hand, foot, elbow, head....


Changing Body Game added 9-1-01 Original Author Unknown 

Get a picture of your child and glue it to a piece of paper. Then allow the children to go through magazines, newspapers, etc... and cut out pictures of animals, people, characters. Then cut off the heads of all of these pictures and they can place them over their picture to see what they would look like in someone else's body! Example: cut the head off of Bozo the clown and place the rest over the body of your picture and you can see what it looks like! How about cutting off the head of a giraffe and having a body like a giraffe...it is a lot more fun than it is written.


Copycats added 9-1-01 Original Author Unknown 

Everyone copycats the actions and sound of the leader. The leader sings the rhyme below. Go first to give the children examples of the range of sounds and movements possible. Use any sounds motions should involve body parts moved in different ways. Repeat the same sounds and movements until everyone is able to imitate. Repeat the musical rhyme and begin again. This is a wonderful activity for even the introverted child.

Copycat, Copycat
That's what I am,
Copycat, Copycat
Do what__________ does, if you can


Feet on hands added 9-1-01 Original Author Unknown 

Make handprint tracks across a hard floor. For more durability, cover the handprints
with contact paper. Put on music and have the kids play follow the handprints. For
added fun, have the handprints track squiggle and turn, going into or under small places just the right size for the little ones.
