Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes

Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes

And eyes and ears and mouth and nose

Lie baby on their back, touch their head, shoulders, knees and toes. Then let them watch you do the actions on your own body. Maybe a big brother or sister can demonstrate too!
