The first activity is one where your child can name the different body parts – hair, nipples, arm, leg, vulva, penis etc.

 

Activity 2

The second activity is a variation of the previous activity, where your child will draw a line from the word to the correct body part.

The third activity is an opportunity to talk about private body parts.  Your child can colour in the underwear, cut it out and glue it onto the child, covering the private parts of the body.
