With this activity we are working on labeling body parts as well as our cutting and gluing skills. I was actually very surprised to see how challenging this was for Reagan. I expected this to be much easier for her and was pleasantly surprised to have challenged her, so with that said I hope that your preschooler is equally challenged.

For this preschool activity we are working on a vertical surface which uses a whole different set of muscles and we are working on identifying body parts.

Teacher Tip

We chose to cut out our body outline because it made it easier for us to see the body. However, if your kids do a better job painting inside the lines this may not be necessary for you.
