Doctor Pretend Play Kit



 My oldest daughter's favorite form of pretend play right now is Doctor - Patient. At least once a day she calls "patients" into her "office" for check ups and physicals. Lucky for her she has 3 adoring fans/patients who all happily comply with various aches and pains, not to mention a multitude of stuffed animals all who need her tender love and care (and a prescription or two).

She was using blank writing paper to collect her patients information, which is awesome in my opinion, because there is nothing I love more than a creative use of time and paper (I'm an aspiring Illustrator) and this form of pretend play also promotes her literacy development, not to mention handwriting and spelling practice.

But being a creative Mama myself- with an obsessive relationship with Photoshop- I decided to create some Doctor printables for her. (Only because I couldn't find any free doctor printables online... and I scoured the web knowing that if I created some from scratch it would set me back an entire days worth of housework.... but alas, no such luck)

Sidenote: I may or may not also be a bit OCD/perfectionist to the point where I have to make everything from scratch regardless of whether or not I can get it for free (bedding, pillows, decor, homeschool work, cards, letterhead, invitations, etc) because I can never find exactly what I'm looking for and nothing short of exactly what I need will ever do.

Here is the free doctor kit should your kids want to enjoy a few hours of Doctor/Patient fun! Click the Image to print. The Rx Page has 4 per page so you can create a little Rx pad for them. I just made it big for this image so you could get an idea of what they look like.

  2. This kid I babysit never wants to play pretend doctor on me. At least I don't have to deal with fake needles in my skin...

    1. Hello,
      I'm so sorry it has taken me so long to respond. The Professor Poppins blog has been under construction, and now that it's almost complete I believe I've got the downloads working again. Please revisit www.professorpoppins.blogspot.com and find the downloads you were wanting. I've switched to a new host website so there shouldn't be anymore confusion. If you have any more problems please email me back and I'll respond as quick as I can.

      Sincerly,
      Stephanie

  5. Also seems like a good idea if your child is REALLY sick - then they can communicate aches and pains clearly.
