A body theme just for babies!
The head, the nose, feet... Here is a list of activities with small posters on the subject for your daycare!
(Open Mini posters-The body) Laminate the posters and display them at eye level.
You may cut out the illustrations, laminate them, and make small cards. Place the cards in a small box and let babies observe them whenever they please.
You may also make a small board. Add Velcro to the back of the illustrations. Laminate a piece of cardboard and stick strips of Velcro on it. Encourage babies to stick the illustrations on the board.
(Open List of activities-The body) This is a colourful printable version.
Massage the babies' feet with almond oil (make sure there are no allergies first). Talk about their toes and feet while massaging.
Use a feather to tickle babies' necks, the inside of their hands, their feet, their tummy...
Place a sticker on babies' faces (on the nose or on the cheek). Invite them to look at themselves in the mirror. Supervision is necessary. If you prefer, you may simply add a dot of face paint.
A surprise box: Add pictures of the babies' body parts to a small box. Let them explore the pictures. Display small posters and encourage babies to recognize the different parts of their bodies. A container filled with various hats babies can place on their heads.
Mirrors are great for this theme. When sitting down, babies can even admire the soles of their feet!
