Body Parts Song

I discovered this little song to help learn body parts, and we love it! We even did it over Skype with Wyler and he loved it too.
Erik is pretty good at identifying his facial features, even the less mentioned ones like his cheeks and chin, but it doesn't hurt to review. The great thing about this song is you can add in any body part you want. So we can sing about legs, arms, elbow, hair, or whatever else we want. The main point behind this is to build Erik's vocabulary, but it's also a fun way to get music into our day.
We also have another song that we like to use for learning body parts, although this one isn't quite as adaptable. Erik's pretty good at doing it (although in the video he gets too distracted to finish off the last little bit, but that's okay), which is fun since he didn't know where his shoulders or knees were until we learned this song.
Remember music AND movement combined can do amazing things for your child, so take a minute and sing a song or dance and know that you've changed your child's life for the better.
