Toddler Time: My Body Parts Song

Little Brother had absolutely no interest in singing this song with me (probably due to the blocks, large exercise ball, and train table in his immediate eyesight). But I think it is a fun song nonetheless (especially for younger toddlers), so I decided to share it with you regardless of how non-participatory Little Brother was in this video.

And yes, I know I have a terrible voice.  I’m swallowing my pride as I speak type.

 

The Body Parts Song (to the tune of  “Where is Thumpkin?”)

Where is your nose?  Where is your nose?
Here it is.  Here it is.
Touch it with your finger.  Touch it with your finger.
Just like me.  Just like me.
(Insert a different body part for each verse:  eyes, ears, tummy, toes, etc)

Perhaps your child will be more interested in it than mine was!

    Brilliant Body Parts song! I still remember taking my son to the doctor when he was 2 and they asked him to point to different body parts. He couldn’t do it. I thought…. if I’d known there was going to be a test, we would have studied! That was my first born, for my second we practiced and guess what – the doctor never asked him! Fortunately now at 7 and 9 we have NO problem identifying our parts!

    We have one too.

    Fingers and toes and
    Knees and nose and
    Eyes and ears!
    And Ell-a-bows
    Cheeks! And Chins
    and then there’s those (butt)
    And that is how the body song goes.
    (pointing or jiggling each part as I sing it)

    Our little guy seems to respond to the rhyming.

    LOVE this song!! So cute– and your solo was great!!!! My son is 10 months old, and fascinated with noses right now! I’m going to start singing this song with him and make him a body parts book!!

    I’m a teacher too, and have had to work hard to get over my “stage fright” singing in front of them (I can’t really carry a tune in a bucket!)

    I love your song! It’s hard to find good songs to teach kids about the body, but yours works (I have used it with my kids). Here’s another video that’s really good I found on youtube (Toddler World TV)…it’s called “The Parts of You and Me” and it’s performed by the folk group called The Little Blue Globe Band.
