Toddler Activities: Upgraded Operation Game

Posted by

Ever played the game Operation when you were a kid? Here is an anatomically accurate version!


Our model here is Electra. She hails from the Scienceworks Museum shop and is genuinely anatomically correct. Electra has “cancerous tissue” (literally ripped up pieces of tissue paper) on various organs. Miss A is busy removing them with a pair of tweezers.

Great for a rainy day, learning anatomy (for the parents too as you have to know your stuff to answer the “what’s that??” questions), fine motor skills, and hand-eye coordination!

Would like to say I came up with this activity. I didn’t. Credit to my husband.
