Body Shapes & Disabilities Activity Set
So, what is the Body Shapes & Disabilities Activity Set, you ask?
Do your kids have questions about different body shapes & abilities? Tall, short, fat, thin, someone in a wheelchair or perhaps a child with Down’s Syndrome? Have they been made fun of or maybe made honest, but inapropriate comments?
Here are a set of delightful printable activities that are zero prep & ready to go to help you have a conversation about different types of body shapes & abilities.
How are the activities designed?
Powered by play and backed by child science , all activities in our Diversity Play Lab are designed by early childhood experts at indigrow. But make no mistake, these are no ordinary “worksheets”. Those are boring!
These are oh-so fun printables, art & craft activities, science experiments and more.
The themes picked are the most common questions kids ask as they notice differences in body shapes and abilities.
“ Why did she call me fat?”
“ Do I look like a stick?”
“ Can we play with us if he is in a wheelchair? ”
" What is Down's Syndrome?"
Each activity has two parts.
1. The first part is a delightful thematic play based activity - an experiment, craft or art activity.
2. The second part is for grown ups, where we give you facts and actual phrases, to empower your kiddo so they can be prepared and culturally aware.
How do I get it? What does it look like?
You just add it to cart , you will receive a link to all the pdf’s in 24 hours. Open them up and enjoy them in your own time.
How best to enjoy it?
All it takes is 2 mins! Weave it into your everyday life. Use the printable, get out the crayons and have a cup of tea as your little one has fun.
Have a little conversation that will make a big difference in their lives.
How old does my child need to be?
We recommend all activities in the Diversity Play Lab for little ones 3-8 yrs old.
Do I need to be raising a mixed race kid or be an expat to enjoy this?
Absolutely not! This is made for anyone looking to raise a little global citizen, to open minds and nurture confidence and kindness. It is a way to celebrate differences and similarities in a fun and delightful way.
We are all living in an increasingly diverse world and our kids are going to be dealing with physical, emotional and cultural differences as early as preschool- this is a great first step to develop their emotional and cultural intelligence.
