Some of you already know that I struggle with imaginary play.... but I do like to make things for imaginary play. I take those things to my mothers' group so Cakey can enjoy imaginary play with her friends and their mothers.... who are all so much better at it than me.
I made some doctor charts that were inspired by Inner Child Fun's miniature doll clipboards. It was so simple. I cut up small pieces of cardboard for the base of the chart. I then secured loose pieces of paper to the cardboard charts with a bull dog (or binder) clip. I printed out some little body outlines so the children could mark down the location of their patient's injuries. You can download the body outlines as a pdf file here.
The kids loved this activity and played doctors until morning tea time. There were some seriously sick patients at the hospital clinic as you can see by some of the charts.
