Anatomy Activities for Kids

Anatomy Activities for Kids! Easy and fun STEM activities all about the human body.

Kids are natural scientists. They want to know how things work and what is going on in the world around them. This is wonderful.

One of my favorite ways to explore the world with kids is to start with them. The human body is fascinating! There are so many systems at work and so many levels of detail we can go into to fit with any child’s level of interest and ability.

The human body also has the benefit of being extremely relatable. We all have bodies, this science is happening in your child. (And we all know kids like when things are about them.) Breathing, hearts beating, reflexes. These are all things kids experience and are of concrete importance. This keeps them interested and wanting to know more.

The drawback of studying the body for parents is how do we bring this biology home? Sure, there are websites and books where you can see models and diagrams. But kids like to be hands-on. They learn best by touching and doing.

You can’t exactly go inside a body at home, but you can do some really fun and interactive learning activities that will wow your kids and help them learn about the human body.

Here is a collection of anatomy science activities for kids that you can easily do at home with household items.

Anatomy Activities for Kids

These STEM activities for kids are designed to be done at home with simple items you can find around the house. They can be done with toddlers through elementary school ages. (Though older kids might find them fun too!)

Older kids can probably do a lot of these themselves, but younger children will need help from an adult. But there is so much learning to be done here.

The key to these activities is to remind your kids that these processes and systems are happening right now inside of them. This science matters because it is how they are living.

More Fun STEM Activities

These fun human body science experiments, as I said, are the perfect way to get your kids interested and excited about STEM. So don’t stop with just these! There is so much more you can do at home to help your kids be the scientists they want to be.

You can check out all the different options. There are science activities, sensory activities, and the basic learning activities every child needs. (Think letter learning, number sense, coloring, shapes, etc.)

And you don’t need special equipment. These activities are meant to be easy to put together and use household items. (Or at least items that are easy to get and are inexpensive.)
