Kits for play – creating a doctor & vet kit
Miss E came into me one morning last week wearing a nurses hat, white apron and chunky black glasses. She declared she was a Doctor and was here to give me a ‘check-up’ before I got up for work.
She put down her equipment and got to work. First she checked my heart and stomach with her stethoscope…
“Ahhh, just as I though, clocks in your heart and wriggly worms in your tummy”.
She then checked my elbow – “Hmmm… Let me do an x-ray.” Out came the stained ‘glass’ sheet that Master O had made at childcare. “Yes. You have bees in your elbow” (her stethoscope makes noises by the way, hence the interesting diagnosis).
She checked my eyes with a kaleidoscope – declared them “very colourful”, gave me a pretend tablet and was on her way.
It’s been an ongoing dress up ever since – alternating between doctor and vet for our long suffering cat, so I found their little suitcase and added a few extras for them.
The kit contains:
• Stylin’ hot air balloon Doctor’s case
• X-Ray – you could make these in a similar manner to our treasure windows – just bigger and maybe even add bone shapes to them.
• Doctor’s glasses (3D cinemas glasses with the lenses poked out) – all the better to see you with my dear…
• A surgical mask (nabbed from the doctors clinic a while back)
• Gold coin – this doctor demands good pay and doesn’t bulk bill 😉
• Tablets – the little container has small lollies, the m&m container has cat food
• Somewhere in there is a flat ice-cream spoon – tongue depresser
• White apron and nurses hat
• Kaleidoscope – for checking eyes
• A note book and pen for prescriptions
• A toy to distract kids and animals
They have been playing SO nicely and PEACEFULLY a with this!
