Some of my favorite memories from childhood involve pretend play (also known as dramatic play). And one of my favorite pretend play games involved playing doctor with my stuffed animals.
Both of my kids have carried on that tradition and my youngest continues to do so to this day. But, although she has the pretend play instruments, it is a struggle to find pretend play paperwork—and most kids love filling out paperwork!
So I made my own! And sharing with all of you!
What Are The Benefits Of Pretend Doctor Play?
There are so many benefits of pretend doctor play! For one, it teaches both cognitive as well as emotional empathy, and second, it helps kids overcome a fear of going to the doctor.
There are also other important benefits to pretend play such as learning, thinking and problem solving abilities—in other words, all of the important skills that will be needed once your little one starts attending school!
