Parts of a Face in Chinese for kids

Your kids probably know how to say head, shoulders, knees, and toes now after learning about body parts in Chinese, but how about parts of the face? Learning Chinese about the parts of a face will help children understand feelings too. For example, they will know that you are happy when your mouth smiles.

To teach children about parts of a face in Chinese, try repeating each vocabulary word while having them point to that part of their face. After they learned about the vocabulary word for parts of a face, parents can then use sentences to practice learning to speak Chinese with the kids – “This is my nose” or “I touch my eyes”. To make it easier for you, Galaxy Kids has prepared a list of vocabulary about parts of a face in Chinese for kids as the first step to help them describe a person.
