About Me includes worksheets, sticker pages, and activities – all about the human body!

This activity is super easy and goes perfectly with our workbook lessons #6 & #8.

You need a glove, flexible straws, and scissors.

Help your child cut five straws to fit inside the fingers of one glove. You will probably need to cut from both ends.

Assist your child in sliding the straws into each finger, making sure the end with the flex goes in first.

Hold the straws in place at the bottom of the glove while your child feels and bends the fingers.
