Here’s a very easy game to practice the names and locations of the facial features. This is a good drill for a parent who needs to memorise these words, too!!
( If you want to review vocabulary for this game, Click here! )
To play, simply start gently tapping the nose, “코, 코, 코, 코, 코~”
Then you pick another facial feature, name it and tap on it. eg. “..눈!”
“코, 코, 코, 코, 코~ 입!”
“코, 코, 코, 코~ 코!”
“코, 코, 코, 코, 코, 코~ 볼!”
This game has a similar feeling to the English “Simon Says,” in that the second facial feature you name ought to be suddenly and unexpectedly picked, seeing if the child can quickly recognise and point to it.
This game can be played with babies of any age, adapted to suit their ability. For a small baby, you might tap their face or your own face to show them, as they get a little bigger, you might hold their hand with index finger extended and help them tap their own face or yours. Now Alice is learning to point with her own finger and she likes to practice by herself “코, 코, 코, 코, 코~”
