It is a challenge to teach very young children to know the parts of the body.

I was given this as a challenge to teach my 3 year-old grandson. So I tried to teach him in a creative manner. It was very difficult to arrest his attention and he finds it boring!
So I created a game and verses:

Head, shoulders, knees and toes,
Hands, fingers, thumbs and elbows,
Eyes, ears, mouth and nose
Neck, body, tummy and waist,
Let’s say them again in haste!

Read the above and do the action by touch the body parts. Oh, he loved the action and it was a success. I tried it out with some other kids (3+ years and above). They love the verses and remember them very fast. Kids really learn when they play!

Why not you try on some other kids and give me your comment!
