Our dramatic play area "hospital" is a huge hit! The waiting area has some fun medical activity books for kids, and once the "receptionist" has admitted you, the doctors have all the latest equipment like band aids, gauze wraps, IV bag, "needles", crutches, and so much more! The best is the "lollipop" at the end of your visit!!
Wow. This is an even better idea. The back area to a post office where clerks sort out the mail can also be incorporated into the dramatic play area. Using the ABCs and 123s that are labeled on the boxes, children can correctly put such envelopes in each.
