    You can assemble a few doctor's supplies for them to feel and they can make their own doctor kit by taping/gluing the doctor supplies to a paper doctor bag. You can include a bandaid, cotton ball, q-tip, tounge depressor, white tape that doctors use to wrap with, etc. for each child.

    You can also get some gauze and have them "doctor" the dolls or stuffed animals in the room. If you do this, plan a lot of time! The kids will be wrapping and unwrapping for quite some time. Younger children will need shorter pieces of gauze as they tend to tangle them up.

    I just did a really cute project for community helper week with my 4 year olds. We read "Daisy the Doctor" by Felicity Brooks and Jo Litchfield.

    Then on black construction paper I had traced a doctor bag shape which the children cut out. I had cut out a "red cross" from construction paper and the children glued it on one side of their doctor bag (this was the front of the bag). We fliped the bags over and on the other side the children glued on tounge depressers, cotton balls, and pieces of gauze. they unwrapped a bandaid and stuck it on, and I tore each a piece of surgical tape and they stuck it on. I'm trying to remember if there was something more....can't remember. You can use anything first-aid related that can be stuck or glued to the construction paper.

    The kids loved holding the bags, showing their paernts the front with the red cross and then showing the "inside" with the doctor stuff.

    ps. my children's favorite doctor book is The Shanna Show book. It's called Shanna's Doctor Show.
