Toddler Tuesday – August

This Toddler Tuesday was spent learning all about how to keep our bodies healthy and happy.  We learned about which foods belong in each food group, what kinds of foods to fill our plates up with, and even did some fun exercises!

We started by learning a little about the human skeleton and all our body parts by singing “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes”:

Headdd...shoulders, knees, and toes...

...and eyes, and ears, and mouth, and nose

Where are your noses?

Does anyone have a glass of milk with dinner?

Show me your knees!

Next, we learned what foods are healthy to eat, and which foods to stay away from.

Is this a healthy or unhealthy food?

Are all these foods unhealthy?

Say cheese with mom!

These all look like healthy foods

Working together to sort the food

Then, Brittany taught us which foods belong in the different food groups, and what types of foods we should put on our dinner plates.

Hm, is bread a grain or vegetable?

Mom says to put some chicken on my plate

Cutting out all the different foods

Someone's having fun working on their dinner plate!

Where should I put the spinach, mom?

Hm, watermelon or pineapple?

Looks like all the food groups filled up his plate!

Your plate looks like it has some yummy food

Lastly, we headed outside to learn how exercise can keep us healthy. We raced through an obstacle course to get our heart rates up!

Hop like a bunny through the hoops!

Made it through the tunnel!

Weave through the cones quickly!

Anybody in there?

Hop like a kangaroo...

Whew, that was hard work!

We had a great time this Tuesday learning all about healthy bodies. We hope to see everyone back next month for a morning learning all about animals!
