My Poppet put together a simple and inexpensive play doctor's kit that has kept her own daughter busier than an ER nurse. By using materials she mostly found around the house, the cost of this kit was minimal. Cintia even sewed her own surgical mask out of a large gauze pad.
Personally, the only thing I would add is one of those lights used to look into the ear canal, since this was a particularly frightening tool for my daughter at her last visit. My mind is already fashioning one out of a little clip-on book light and an old flashlight tube. But I will definitely be on the lookout for a small case like the one Cintia has used, it really makes the project come together in an eye-catching way. • See more: My Poppet (Images: My Poppet.
