- Old sheeting
- Masking tape
Tear narrow strips of old sheeting to make bandages. Cut out triangular shapes too. Show your child how to make an arm sling and how to tape down bandages. Using her bears, dolls, and stuffed toys as patients, have your child pretend that she is in a hospital or clinic where the toys must be treated and repaired. Be careful to handle the toys gently.
