When Saving Time and Money Is Important and Quality Matters!

Doctor Crafts, Hospital and Doctor Preschool Activities, Crafts, Lessons, and Printables

New January 2012: Doctor and Hospital Preschool Activities and Crafts.  This theme is all about doctors, nurses, and hospitals! As children build literacy, develop vocabulary, practice math concepts, and participate in dramatic play and movement activities, they also gain confidence in relation to their own medical experiences. Through songs, literature, music, sorting, organizing, rhyming, and more, children come to understand how and why doctors and nurses are important members of communities, helping people to stay healthy and to heal when they are sick. Samples of our more than 90 doctor and hospital crafts, activities, crafts, games, songs, rhymes, coloring pages, and printables.

Compare and Contrast Story Character Doctor and Hospital Experiences

Read several of the recommended children’s books about well-known characters that experience doctor’s visits and hospital stays. Choose two of the characters, for example Curious George and Franklin, and ask children to compare and contrast their medical experiences. They should note the things that are the same about the characters’ experiences and the things that are different. Write children’s responses on chart paper and post it for visitors to read.


Miss Twiggle had a Baby
(Original Author Unknown, adapted by Jolanda Garcia)

Miss Twiggle had a baby.
She named him Tiny Tim.

She put him in the bathtub,
To see if he could swim.

He drank up all the water.
He ate up all the soap.

He tried to eat the bathtub,
But it wouldn't go down his throat.

Miss Twiggle called the doctor.
The doctor called the nurse.
The nurse called the lady with the alligator purse.

In walked the doctor.
In walked the nurse.
In walked the lady with the alligator purse.

"Measles!" said the doctor.
"Mumps!" said the nurse.
"Nothing!" said the lady with the alligator purse.

Out went the doctor.
Out went the nurse.
Out went the lady with the alligator purse.

Eyes and ears and mouth and nose, 
My eyes and ears and mouth and nose, mouth and nose,
That’s how the doctor’s visit goes, how it goes.
