My Body Preschool Activities, Health and Nutrition Crafts, Health Nutrition Kindergarten Art Projects and Lessons

Health and Nutrition Craft and My Body Preschool Activities. Children will have fun learning how to stay healthy from head to toe with the Twiggles, Lily and EarTwiggle. Young children are very curious and love to learn about their body and the foods they eat. Our health and nutrition resources offer age-appropriate lesson ideas, book suggestions, movement activities, healthy recipes, crafts, and songs to reinforce the health and nutrition lessons being taught. Our lessons are designed to be integrated throughout the school year. Samples of our more than 100 Health and Nutrition crafts, my body preschool activities, health nutrition kindergarten art projects, and other resources available on our KidsSoup Resource Library.

Literacy: Read the book Hello Benny!: What It's Like to Be a Baby

Display a picture of a baby. Explain to children that all of us were once babies. Ask children who has a baby brother or sister. Discuss how we have changed since we were babies and what we needed to grow (food, water, sleep, love). Display baby-to-adult sequencing pictures and talk about them.

EarTwiggle Puppet:
Introduce EarTwiggle and sing and move to the Healthy Twiggles song. Use the EarTwiggle puppet to stress the point that we need healthy foods, water, sleep, and exercise to grow up healthy and strong.

Movement:
Have children stretch and make themselves tall and then small like a baby. Walk around in grownup steps and then in baby steps. Crawl like a baby, make small toddler jumps, then have children jump like big kids.

Show a picture of a baby’s and an adult’s handprint. Have children compare them to their own hands. Use words like: “My hand is larger than the baby’s hand. My hand is smaller than the adult’s hand.”

Rhyme: Where Is Thumbkin?
(Start with hands behind back.)

Where is thumbkin?
Where is thumbkin?
Here I am (Bring right hand to front, with thumb up.)
Here I am. (Bring left hand to front, with thumb up.)
How are you today sir?
Very well, I thank you. (Wiggle thumbs as if they're "talking" to each other.)
Run away (Hide right hand behind back.)
Run away. (Hide left hand behind back.)

Extension:
Craft: Make a growing chart for each child. Place one leaf at birth height and a flower at child’s current height. Tape a picture of the child inside the flower.

My Body Rhymes and Songs:

Germs are not for sharing activitiesMe

Here are my fingers and here is my nose.
Here are my ears and here are my toes.
Here are my eyes that open wide.
Here is my mouth with my white teeth inside.
Here is my pink tongue that helps me speak.
Here are my shoulders and here is my cheek.
Here are my hands that help me play.
Here are my feet that go walking each day.

Moveable Me
(Tune: B-I-N-G-O)

My arms have parts that bend and move
Every time I use them.
Shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand
Shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand
Shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand
And this is how I move them.

My legs have parts that bend and move
Every time I use them.
Knee, ankle, heel, and foot
Knee, ankle, heel, and foot
Knee, ankle, heel, and foot
And this is how I move them!

My trunk has parts that bend and move
Every time I use them.
Neck, back, waist, and hips
Neck, back, waist, and hips
Neck, back, waist, and hips
And this is how I move them!

I'm made of parts that bend and move
Every time I use them.
Shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand
Knee, ankle, heel, and foot
Neck, back, waist, and hips
And this is how I move them!
