Where is Your (Body Part) Song

Mommy Nature's Preschool Blog

Using the tune to Where is Thumbkin?, you can personalize this to include basic body parts that your child already knows as well as building a body part vocabulary.

Where is Your (Body Part)?
Where is (child's name or your) nose?
Where is your nose?
Here it is.
Here it is.
Use it to smell and sniff
Flowers, cookies - get a whiff.
Mmm, mmm good!  Mmm, mmm good!

Where are (child's name or your) eyes?
Where are your eyes?
Here they are.
Here they are.
Use them to look and see.
Look at you, look at me.
I see you, I see you.

Where are (child's name or your) ears?
Where are your ears?
Here they are.

It's a fun idea to have your pet (or a picture of an animal) nearby and sing the alternate verses.  What a great way to understand body part functions and classify likeness and differences between humans and their animal companions!

Consider replacing the English words with Spanish words and sign language to enhance your preschooler's vocabulary further!
