Parents should find a picture of a boy or a girl. The picture should show the boy or girl from head to foot. Show your child the picture. Ask him or her to name the parts of the body as you point to them (Eg: arms, feet, ears, etc.).
Afterwards, provide crayons and paper for your youngster to draw himself or herself. Have your preschooler point to the parts of the body on his or her drawing and you label the body parts.
Next, let your child look at himself or herself in a full length mirror and point to the parts of his/her body.
