Play Center: Animal Doctor

I have been wanting to start creating play centers for my little guy. I've had this particular idea in my mind for a while, but since I am usually a perfectionist, I procrastinated, because I wanted it to be perfect. Today, I wasn't worried about perfection. I set this center up in a matter of minutes. The heat had become unbearable today so we were stuck indoors. This first center was far from perfect. Logan didn't seem to notice. He adored it. He played contentedly with it for a long time.

Here is a picture of Logan with his patients in the waiting room.

He checked his patients' ears, 

their temperatures, 

and blood pressure. 

Like any good doctor, he wrote down his "doctor notes." And just like a doctor, he was the only one who could read his writing!

Soon enough, after a stay in the hospital, many of his patients were issued a clean bill of health. Scout thought it looked like fun, and wanted a turn. He quickly changed his mind on the fun part.

Once everyone was healthy, they were able to pick a prize out of the prize box. Finally, they all had a snack. I think that we will have to play this again soon! Have you ever set up a play center? Want to tell me about it? I'm looking for more ideas!


  1. This is great!! I love that most kids don't care about the little details, they're happy playing with what you give them. I'd probably be a procrastinator myself trying to sew a doctor's coat and all that jazz. I love Logan's dr.'s notes.

  2. Adorable! That looks like fun. Your blog is so cute, can't wait to check it all out! Thanks for the visit & comment on mine.

  3. So cute! I love seeing kids playing and using their imagination! I need to get my son a dr's kit. He would love that!

  5. He definitely did. He didn't want me to take the waiting room apart! We used it for a few days and I just put it away today. Now I just need some more ideas! : )
