Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes - Updated


Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes



When I first started this blog, I posted an idea on how to make HSK&T a little more fun.  Well, that idea evolved into something a little more rowdy fun, and I just realized that I haven't ever posted the new version here.  This new one includes the original body parts, a bunch of extra body parts, and now MOVEMENTS.  

Oh, yes.  That's right.  Actions!!  I know what you're thinking...and you're right!  It is the perfect way to sneak in your power-yoga workout in on Sunday without breaking the Sabbath!  So, here is the PDF with the girl clipart and all of the aforementioned body parts and action words.  Simply cut them out, use spray adhesive to stick the girl to the poster board, laminate the words, and velcro them to the poster board.  Make sure to leave 4 velcro dots at the top of the board to stick the words to when they've been chosen.  Got it?

(Printer help...when you select print, make sure to change the page scaling to "Tile All Pages" or choose the poster print settings.  The image should print on 4 pages total.)

Have fun!

  3. I really want to make this for my primary. I can't seem to get it to print correctly. I don't know if it's because I'm on a Mac or what. There is no Poster or Tile print setting. Any advice?

    1. I am a lot of things, but tech-savvy is not one of them! I wish I knew how to help! The only thing I can think of is to reproduce it in a program like Word or any graphics program that you have. Here is the link to the clipart that I used:

      You can download it and make it as big as you want by creating a poster in your program. Mine is a 4-page poster, which fits perfectly on a standard posterboard. The font is Kristen ITC in 72pt size. I hope it works without too much effort! Good luck!

    2. I found this link helpful for printing this page
      http://www.sc.edu/our/doc/Poster_tile%20printing.pdf

      Select the print option, save as a PDF, open Acrobat Reader, open document you just saved into Acrobat reader, go to file, print, choose poster under page sizing, hit print! Took me an hour to figure out because I am not tech savvy!

  4. Sorry.. Im new at this.. so the kids just pick what bidy parts they want to sing and you put it at the top? Do you always end in eyes ears mouth and nose? How do u add the movements? Im a little confused, but I LOVE the idea.

    1. Yes, have them pick 4 things from the body parts/actions. I always had them end on eyes, ears, mouth and nose, but I suppose you could have those be chosen, too. So the result could be something like Hands, Bend, Tummy, Clap. Or Stretch, Hips, Neck, Toes. It's pretty wiggly, but they'll love it!
