There are SO many songs in The Children’s Songbook on thanks! I Have Two Ears is one that is lesser-known but PERFECT to sing around Thanksgiving! Your primary will love wearing all these body parts the song references!
Eyes, Ears, Feet, Lips and Hands
These body parts referenced in I Have Two Ears can all be worn! This printable you can download utilizes Susan Fitch’s artwork (find her website HERE) with all the associated body parts:
In addition to 3 other images portrayed in the song (work, play, Heavenly Father):
Access my printables at my Resource Library. Instructions for accessing my Resource Library are found at the bottom of this post.
Print the visuals on card stock (optional, but recommended!). Cut out the eyes, ears, feet, lips and hands and laminate (again, optional but recommended!). Then attach hands and feet to rubber bands or sewing elastic (use a hole punch and then tie together) to be worn. And the rest to craft sticks.
Singing Time Idea
Show the body parts. Ask the children which part of their bodies they wouldn’t mind giving up. Quickly discuss how hard it would be to do without that part of your body.
Choose children to come wear the body parts and hold the other pictures as you and the teachers sing the song. Post the words as needed like I do HERE.
When their part of the song is mentioned, have them demonstrate their body part or picture by pointing to it, moving it, holding it up, etc.
Have children choose someone else to wear or hold their item and repeat until each child has had a turn and the song has been sung multiple times.
Bear testimony that Heavenly Father has given us our wonderful bodies and we should use them wisely.
