“Bodies and Bones” little ones event

For our little ones event this month, we celebrated bodies and bones (sounds Halloween-ish enough to make me happy, while not frightening small children). We held this event in the library twice and once at an outreach event housed by Severance Town Hall.

I froze gloves full of water and drew germs on them, like this post from  How Wee Learn. The kids had to wash off the germs. Pro tip: Fill the gloves, and draw the germs on before you freeze them. Our younger kiddos really just liked the sensory aspect of this.

We used our five senses to figure out what was in the bag. Shake the bag. What does it sound like? Smell it. Can you smell anything? Open the bag and reach in, but don’t peek. What do you feel? Look inside. What do you see (Popcorn!) Taste the popcorn.

We made “x-rays” of our hands, like this post from Susan and Will.

Our special friends from Toothzone helped us brush a dragon’s teeth and learn to floss with string, Playdoh, and Duplos.

We made paper bag bodies, like this post from ABC Child Development Center.
