Excited to be working with b. toys to bring you this post.
 
Pretend play is not only fun but a great way for kids to learn about the world around them.  We recently got a new Wee Medical Kit from B. Toys (thanks B. Toys).  I knew exactly how I could put it to use for some  learning through play.  A pretend play medical office would be a great learning activity for the kids.  I set out to get them all setup for an afternoon of fun.

How to setup:

I used the room that had our small table and chairs in it.  I set one chair beside the table (for the doctor to sit) and one across from it for the patient to sit.  I sat 2 more chairs off to the left side of the room to mimic a waiting room.

How to make ID Tags and Rx pad:

I created some simple RX pads and doctor ID tags for the kids. After printing them out I laminated them.  I tried gluing the tags to clothespins but they fell off.  I plan to go back and add holes and yarn or ribbon so they can wear as necklaces.

I also printed out an Eye Chart from  Classroom Clip Art.

Now that everything was setup it was time to play.

Pretend play is great for kid’s imaginations.  It is also a great way to work on social skills.  Pretend play helps kids learn new words and terminology.  It is a great way to encourage problem solving and thinking outside the box.  It is also a great way to learn about the world around us.

The doctor(little brother) comes in and ask questions.  Then he gives his patient (big brother) a band-aid.

Baby brother plays nurse and gets his vital signs.

Then they take turns switching out roles.

Then he writes out a prescription for you before you leave. This is a great way to work on mark making with the younger kids and writing words with the older children.  It is also a fun way to go over how to spell your name and what is your date of birth.  
 
 
The possibilities for learning with pretend play are numerous.  It is also fun!  We love to have fun and learn along the way.
