Paper Body Parts

ages 3-6


Construction paper, brass fasteners, yarn, crayons

Activity Detail

Cut out ovals and circles from construction paper to make body parts -- one circle for the head; a large oval for the body; and a series of circles and ovals for the arms and legs. Help your child to assemble the body from the parts by attaching the ovals and circles with brass fasteners where the joints should be. Glue on yarn for hair and draw face and other features with crayons. This is a great way to reinforce some of the lessons your child is learning in school.

I like this activity a lot for younger kids. By age 5-6, though I think it could be adapted to include vital organs that could be drawn in since basic body parts are pretty remedial at this point and many kids have a fascination with the various organs etc. if it's encouraged.
