Watching my kids play pretend is one of my favorite things to do. Sometimes, it’s better than watching a sitcom! In any case, they’ve got two favorite play-pretend games they play. The first is where they pretend they’re going to church – and it is so funny that it almost makes me feel bad for laughing because I’m worried I’m being irreverent. But, the kids love it and it’s cute. Their other favorite play-pretend game is playing doctor.
Maybe it’s because I’m a nurse – and because I let them play with my actual nursing tools. Well, except my otoscope and my good stethoscope. But they like playing with my older stethoscope – and how it really works. So I had to get some play pretend doctor printable made – so that I could print them out for my own kids. Ah… the joys of parenting, right?
Play Pretend Doctor Printable – Let Your Kids Be the Healthcare Team
My kids take turns being the doctor, the nurse, and the patient. And we’re still working on how you’re not supposed to use the reflex hammer to hit siblings. In any case, though, they love pretending they’re with mama at work at the hospital – and how they can help their friends feel better. That and make the owies all better!
Within this printable kit are:
- A waiting room sign
- An exam room sign
- Play-pretend prescription pad
- Pretend Doctor Hospital ID cards
- A patient information and diagnosis sheet
Okay, so while none of these would pass at a real hospital, let alone pass federal regulations and guidelines, they’re adorable for my kids’ pretend doctor office. And it’s cute that they’re getting to see how a doctor’s office works – making future visits to the doctor a lot less scary.
Although, the only one who ever gets the pretend vaccines is me. Hmmm…
