A few months ago in the midst of prego sickness... I made the kiddos a little "vet" kit. They are into rescuing animals (thanks to TV show Go Diego, Go!). We needed something to do to keep the little minds and fingers busy... I had lots of fabric scraps... it came together quite easily.
Since then I see the kit come out every once in a while. The little animals are rescued and covered with bandages. I love listening to the dialogue as Ethan bosses Eden around... and Eden does her own thing!
I love creative play...
This weekend we made some medicine bottles to go with the kit. Ethan was amazed that I had so many medicine bottles... it's been a long pregnancy thus far... 17 more weeks to go!
I love how the labels turned out. The kids decided to name their clinic the Ethan and Eden Animal clinic... I shortened it to the E&E Animal Clinic.
I think it is a fun little kit... I made the bandages out of muslin ... there are multiple sizes -- to fit on elephant trunks or around a tiger's tummy with velcro attachments. I made a few slings that fit on particular animals... there are a few blankets (not pictured), a bowl for food, a felt bone. Maybe we'll add to the kit as time goes on, but for now it is pretty cool and well used!!!
