The ALEX Toys Little Hands Ready, Set, Bodies teaches young children about the human body. It has various arts and crafts activities that teach the basics of human anatomy, such as piecing together a skeleton and connecting the bones together with a pipe cleaner, using stickers on a human body chart to learn where certain bones fit, cleaning teeth (their favorite activity), and learning how to read braille. The sticker activities and parts where they had to glue helps them work on their fine motor skills.
The ALEX Toys Little Hands Ready, Set, Bodies was an awesome set of arts and crafts activities that introduce the human body to children. We homeschool and have only brushed on anatomy a few times during our science lessons, so this set was perfect to begin introducing them to this subject. I also like that the set helps to promote healthy eating and gives children a visual of what cleaning their teeth does. My daughter especially loved the sticker activities, building the human body and creating the braille alphabet. My son loved connecting the bones together to create a skeleton. I thought it was really inclusive that the set included an activity on braille. We have an aunt who is blind, so this helped my children learn about how she reads.
I really hope Alex Brands continues to create sets like these. Alex Brands creates our favorite craft kits.
