LEARNING ABOUT BODY PARTS
After our episode of numbers, addition and subtraction, I’ve decided to change subject for a while. We will be learning about body parts! This may sound really simple but reading/spelling them isn’t. I don’t expect Sonia or Arnold to learn spelling at this tender young age but at least get exposed to those words. Learning about body parts can be really fun!
For Arnold’s sake (he’s only 2), I printed and laminated the body parts so he could fix them like a puzzle. Both Sonia and Arnold had so much fun with this and repeated the same activity at least 10 times. While they fixed the simple 3-piece puzzle, we talked about body parts and what they were used for. For example, I used my eyes to see; I used my nose to smell, I used my ears to listen, etc.
When I asked “what do you use your hair for?” Sonia’s answer cracked me up – “hair is use for making princess pretty”. LOL… too much princess movies already -_- I told her that the correct answer was “hair keeps you warm”, but she insisted that “hair is used to make girls pretty”. Well, that’s not wrong too!
See, simple activities can be really engaging!
My two-year-old has really short attention span. Not too long later, he went upstair to play with toys, while Sonia learns to write.
We practiced writing simple words…
And learned more about our head, eye, ear, mouth and nose.

Designing learning worksheets for my children has now become my new hobby! I love creating personalised activity sheets for them and wouldn’t mind the trouble as long as they learn something from it! If you are interested in the worksheets, you can download those printables below. I hope you have as much fun doing them with your kids as I had with mine!
And here’s the 3-piece puzzle I mentioned earlier.
