Miss Polly had a Dolly pretend play:
The first thing we did after getting dressed up as doctors was to use our red dot stickers to cover our doll in spots to make her sick.
The kids loved adding and taking off the stickers and we ended up with a very sick looking dolly.
Harry wanted to check the dolly to see what was making her sick.
Daisy loved copying Harry taking things out of the doctors bag and taking them over to the dolly.
She looked after her dolly and rocked her in her bed.
It would have been great to have some paper to write prescriptions and bills for medicine but Harry wasn't keen on this idea. He was more interested in turning himself into the patient.
This was a lovely activity to get the children playing together and they both really enjoyed themselves.
We used these red dot stickers to cover all of Harry's cuddly toys with spots when he had chicken pox. He though it was great that his teddies had come down with chicken pox too!
Harry: Age 4
Daisy: Age 14 months
