My Body Theme Cooking Center Ideas
Cooking with children helps develop their math skills and helps them to learn how to follow directions. It also allows for some great conversation! Ask many questions while cooking with your children to encourage conversation! Be sure to ask specific themed questions while making these fun snacks!
Materials: apples, carrots, bananas
Have children help you cut carrots and bananas. You will need to cut the apples into slices
Use the apples for a smile, the carrot as a nose and banana slices as eyes on paper plates.
Add what you'd like: raisins for pupils, mini-marshmallows for teeth, etc.
My Body Theme Activities to Help Your Preschoolers Develop Their Math Skills and the Small Muscles in Their Hands!
Have children trace their foot on paper.
Then have them use unix cubes or links to measure how long their feet are!
"My foot is 8 cubes long".
Encourage them to measure their arms, hands, legs, head!
Skeleton Floor Puzzle
Make your own puzzles by painting on black paper with white paint or white chalk. Laminate when dry and cut into puzzle pieces. Or, check out my favorite floor puzzle for this and other themes like Nutrition, Exercise, Doctor's etc. by clicking the picture to the right!
Sort, Classify and Make a Class MY BODY Book!
This is a week long project!
Day 1 & 2
Provide magazines, scissors, brown lunch bags with the name and picture of the body part. (eyes, hands, feet, legs, heads, stomach, etc.)
The children find body parts in magazines, cut out and place in correct bag.
Day 3 & 4
Provide large papers of the same size for each body part.
The children glue the magazine body parts previously cut out to the corresponding paper.
