A Doctor's Kit for Real Play

Happy 2011 to everyone! Have you been bit by the "organizing bug" or the "diet and exercise bug" yet? It always amazes me how fast the Christmas displays in stores are replaced with Slim Fast shakes and storage totes! Cracks me up! It's like we ate ourselves into a disorganized frenzy for a month and now it all needs to be fixed! Well, go ahead and munch on any leftover Christmas cookies (seriously, you need to get rid of them somehow so you might as well just eat them) while I tell you about the Doctor's kit I gave my niece for Christmas.

When I was a little girl, my sister and I spent hours "pretending" and anything real that we could add to our playtime was a huge bonus. I remember we went to a friend's house and she had a REAL telephone to play office with! OH, MY GOODNESS! We were in playtime heaven! We just got soooo excited to use anything real and I guess that is why I was excited to put together a Doctor's kit with "real" stuff inside!


I used two actual Band-Aid boxes and covered them with paper to hold the gauze pads and the Band-Aids.




The Mayor has an independent pharmacy so he ordered a real stethoscope (purple!!!) from his wholesaler at cost. It was so perfect... little girl color but REAL!! I honestly wanted to keep it and I think I listened to my own heartbeat about 100 times!


I also had the Mayor bring home an inexpensive digital thermometer, a roll of gauze, an ace bandage, gloves, a roll of paper tape and a couple different size oral syringes. I found a couple little plastic bottles with eye droppers at JoAnn's.
The Mayor also found an eye chart and some x-ray pictures on line and printed and laminated them for me...they looked really cool!



I found a cute, plastic, stacking box with two levels and a purple cover at JoAnn's. The two levels snap together on the side but it seemed easy enough that a five year old could open it.
I added "Doctor Megan" to the lid with letter stickers, I didn't have a capital "M" and we thought it looked kinda goofy so I ended up switching the "D" to a lower case "d" to match the "m".




Lastly, Mar brought me the cutest little surgical masks with Disney characters on them! They were PERFECT! Bless her busy heart! They were the perfect addition to the kit. Thank you Sister Mar!


Christmas day was a blur of wrapping paper and toys but my niece did seem pleased with her new kit. I hope that it's something she will play with often! Lulu was actually wishing this had her name on it! Maybe I'll make her one for her 13th birthday! Haha, she's so cute, still a little girl at heart! We decided to leave out "skeleton man" because we thought he might be a bit creepy!

He is kinda creepy, oh my!

So, for Nel and Lulu's smile and frown for the week I couldn't resist sharing this photo. The Mayor orders smiley face cookies for the coffee shop part of his pharmacy and this is how they came this week!! This was not photo shopped, this is how the cookies looked when the girls opened them! Is that too funny? We don't know if it was an accident or if someone was just having fun...either way we all had a good laugh!!

  8. Oh my goodness this is such a great idea! My 5 year old would flip over it (and my 11 year old too). They love using up all of our bandaids when they play, so for holidays they always get a package of their own!
    Excellent doctor kit.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Elizabeth, I just googled xrays & went to the images tab & printed some out on photo paper & laminated them. Worked great & there were several to choose from. Hope this works for you too!

  20. Hello! Love your doctor's kit! What brand of container did you use? I can't seem to find a snap n stack that has a large bottom areas and smaller top area. Thanks for your help!

  21. Please do not use empty medicine containers. I know you all have yours locked away, but if they go to grandma's and find one to play doctor with, it could be disastrous. Aside from that, this is perfect

  23. My life is beautiful thanks to you, Mein Helfer. Lord Jesus in my life as a candle light in the darkness. You showed me the meaning of faith with your words. I know that even when I cried all day thinking about how to recover, you were not sleeping, you were dear to me. I contacted the herbal center Dr Itua, who lived in West Africa. A friend of mine here in Hamburg is also from Africa. She told me about African herbs but I was nervous. I am very afraid when it comes to Africa because I heard many terrible things about them because of my Christianity. god for direction, take a bold step and get in touch with him in the email and then move to WhatsApp, he asked me if I can come for treatment or I want a delivery, I told him I wanted to know him I buy ticket in 2 ways to Africa To meet Dr. Itua, I went there and I was speechless from the people I saw there. Patent, sick people. Itua is a god sent to the world, I told my pastor about what I am doing, Pastor Bill Scheer. We have a real battle beautifully with Spirit and Flesh. Adoration that same night. He prayed for me and asked me to lead. I spent 2 weeks and 2 days in Africa at Dr Itua Herbal Home. After the treatment, he asked me to meet his nurse for the HIV test when I did it. It was negative, I asked my friend to take me to another nearby hospital when I arrived, it was negative. I was overwhite with the result, but happy inside of me. We went with Dr. Itua, I thank him but I explain that I do not have enough to show him my appreciation, that he understands my situation, but I promise that he will testify about his good work. Thank God for my dear friend, Emma, I know I could be reading this now, I want to thank you. And many thanks to Dr. Itua Herbal Center. He gave me his calendar that I put on my wall in my house. Dr. Itua can also cure the following diseases ... Cancer, HIV, Herpes, Hepatitis B, Inflammatory Liver, Diabetis, Bladder Cancer,Colorectal Cancer,Breast Cancer,Kidney Cancer,Leukemia,Lun,Fribroid,Infertility,Parkinson's disease,Inflammatory bowel disease ,Fibromyalgia, recover your ex. You can contact him by email or whatsapp, @ .. drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com, phone number .. + 2348149277967 .. He is a good doctor, talk to him kindly. I'm sure he will also listen to you.
