A Handy Activity About Bones

This activity is super easy and goes perfectly with our workbook, About Me.

 

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.

Why We Like It: 

  1. It is sometimes difficult for a very young child to grasp what is under his skin. This activity can help him understand how bones form the structure of his hand.
  2. This is also a good opportunity to teach your child about joints.
