Pretend Play Activity: Pet Doctor

Pretend Play Activity: Pet Doctor

Does your little one love taking care of their stuffed animals? All you need is some paper and tape, and you have a new pretend play activity! 

Our cutest little pet doctor friends, Chloe and Davis, created paper “bandages” and put them on their favorite stuffies while:

👩‍⚕️ Practicing snipping/tearing

👨‍⚕️ Building vocabulary

👩‍⚕️ Using problem solving skills

👨‍⚕️ Learning about empathy 

👩‍⚕️ Sharing & taking turns 

Although this play can be done with just tape, paper, and animals, we also adore this Play Vet Set by Melissa and Doug!

Perform activities recommended by Walk, Talk, Play at your own risk with appropriate adult supervision provided. Walk, Talk, Play is not responsible for any injury caused while performing these play activities.
