Sanity Savers: Movement Activity

Special thanks to the Parent Network of Western New York.

This is a movement break activity based on the “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes” song. This activity is intended to get kids moving while also helping them to learn their body parts.


• Roll dice. The first roll will be to identify a body part to replace “head” in the song. The second roll corresponds
to “shoulders”, third roll with “knees”, and final roll for “toes”.
• Once you have 4 new body parts, insert the new body parts into the song.
• Sing the song aloud while identifying the body parts as they are sung. It may take a few tries to get it right!
*If you have extra dice and markers you can color your dice to match the chart.
