Dentists and Doctors Theme- Weekly Home Preschool

SHARE:

Doctors and Dentists Preschool Theme- Crafts, activities, fine motor activity, pretend play, and more! Perfect amount of EASY activities for one week of homeschool pre-k.

The girls and I completed a mini theme week about doctors and dentists.  They've always loved doing pretend play around this theme, so I made sure to incorporate that in our plans.  We didn't do a TON of activities since we're busy with summer fun, so I included links to several other great ideas about doctors and dentists that I WISH we had had time to do!

At the time we completed these activities, Lena was almost 5 and Maggie was 3.

Brush Your Teeth Craft

This fun process art activity was a great way to illustrate the importance of brushing our teeth thoroughly.  As an added bonus, it took about 2 minutes to set up.  Easy!  Read all about it in this post.

Pretend Play Station


The highlight of the girls' week (by far) was this pretend play doctor's office set up.  They spent hours coughing, complaining, bandaging, taking temperatures, and writing prescriptions.

An upturned laundry basket became our check-in desk.  I used these printable forms from Professor Poppins.

After the girls checked in, they came to our waiting area, complete with magazines for perusing.

I threw a blanket and pillow on our coffee table to become an examination table.

The top of our toy box held all the supplies for the doctor: standard toy doctor kits, more printable forms, and a box of first aid goodies.

This little box was the key to all the magic this week.  I spent just over $10 at the drug store and bought a giant box of bandages, some gauze, medical tape, non-stick pads, and doctor masks.  Normally the bandages are rationed (for actual boo boos) at our house, but the girls got to bandaiges themselves to their hearts content this week and they LOVED it.  They also loved wrapping each others arms and legs in gauze and patching up themselves and their dollies.

Here's Maggie all bandaged up, with a prescription that Dr. Lena wrote her for "Cod Liver Oil."

Books About Dentists

If your toddler or preschooler is anxious about visiting the dentist then reading lots and lots of books about the subject will go a long way towards calming his fears.  Even if your child isn't nervous about visiting the dentist, they can still learn a lot and read some silly stories with these Books About Dentist and Teeth.

Alphabet Bandage Bears

I can't even begin to tell you how much little Maggie loved this activity.  Let your preschooler make Alphabet Bandage Bears for some letter recognition work, fine motor practice, and pretend play.

Field Trip


You could time this theme week to go along with your child's annual well visit to the doctor or to a dental cleaning.  It might help to ease some anxiety!  I'm not sure that counts as a field trip, though!

Doc McStuffins Printables


Doctor and Dentist Theme Homeschool Preschool

Most printables that I found for the week featured a male doctor and a female nurse.  My girls STILL tend to think that females are always nurses males are always doctors, despite having seen otherwise many times.  I didn't want to reinforce that stereotype, so I was happy to find and use these Doc McStuffins printables from 123Homeschool4Me this week (you do have to subscribe to access them).

 As always, Maggie went straight for the cutting and gluing.

Doctor Bag Craft

Is there any child out there who wouldn't love to make their very own doctor's bag?  I just love this Doctor's Bag Craft from Danielle's Place!

Felt Stethoscope

These little Felt Stethoscopes from American Felt and Craft look so soft and friendly!  

Snacks

Who doesn't remember this classic childhood snack?  I just love it.  Mrs. Happy Homemaker shows you how to make them!

Vixen Made put together a whole cute medical themed party.  My favorite snacks are these pretzel thermometers.  Aren't they clever?
