Bobo loves to dress up, mostly as superheroes. When we visited Ivy Tech last year for their annual Punkin' Chunkin', he showed no interest in the medical room. I still snagged some freebies and put them with his dress up play. After he found these items and put them on, he asked for the "bump, bump thang." Daddy had to translate, "stethoscope."
Then, we brought out the First Aid Kit and had a lesson about injuries, big and small.
The first steps for an emergency are Check, Call and Care. If the injury is small, you can skip the call to 9-1-1.
The inside shows what to do for big to small cuts or lacerations. A head injury is on the very right.
A few days ago, Bobo had a small injury on his arm. We talked about how I took care of it, which just happened to follow the steps in the kit.
Bobo had the most fun listening to our hearts. He tried to listen to Buzz's heart, but came to the conclusion toys don't have a heartbeat.
