Make the best of everything!: Homemade Veterinarian Kit!

Monday, September 24, 2012

Homemade Veterinarian Kit!

As all of my readers know, I LOVE to give homemade gifts! Especially to all the children in my life! I have a son who was life changing, a wonderful Goddaughter, a bunch of adorable second cousins, 5 amazing nephews and 1 beautiful niece.
 
Audrey. The one and only girl on my husbands side of the family. We all cherish her.

And I realize that all of you grandparents, aunts, uncles and parents out there claim that the special children in your lives are " Just the smartest"  

But really, my niece Audrey is REALLY smart. She is a very inquisitive little girl who will go on to do great things. Which is why she was the recipient of this Veterinarian kit for her birthday!

Audrey is turning 5 years old.

 

 
I found items rather inexpensively, and put them together to create " Dr. Audrey's animal clinic"




I purchased a small clip board at Wal Mart for $1.00.  I made up some " Patient information" forms.  Every veterinarian office needs to keep up with their paperwork. 




I made a Dr. Mirror by purchasing a small compact from the dollar store, and carefully removing the mirror from the compact.  I then super glued the mirror to this headband.  I also lined the back of the mirror with felt so it would be more comfortable to wear. 

I purchased this real stethoscope on ebay for $1.26 and free shipping! This was a great addition to
Audrey's Animal Clinic, and its much nicer than the cheap plastic stethoscopes you find in the toy department.




I found a few other items at the dollar store to help me complete this kit. Including a bandage wrap and surgical masks.  The surgical masks came in a pack of 10 for only $1.00!



In addition to those, I also purchased a package of band aids and turned them into " Pet Bandages" and a stuffed dog and cat for a dollar each.


Lets go over all the items in Audrey's Veterinarian Kit

1) Clip board and patient information sheets
2) Stethoscope
3) Doctor Mirror
4) A Bandage wrap
5) 10 surgical masks
6) Pet bandages
7) Plastic Tweezers
8) Plastic Medicine administer
9) Mini Pet Dog and a Mint Pet Cat





I placed all of these items in a mini suitcase that I purchased from the craft store.  I want Audrey to be able to keep all of her items together.  I decorated it just for her!!



I really hope she likes this gift.  One thing that amazes me about Audrey and her brothers, is that they are so resourceful and have big imaginations.  I hope that this helps them to learn and have fun!

This is a fantastic idea, and I absolutely love it! I'm going to have to check out ebay for a stethoscope now, my daughter loves her plastic one, but it's falling apart and a realistic looking one would be great to replace it!!

LOVE IT! My 5 yr. old daughter loves Doc McStuffins on Disney Jr. and loves to play this type of creative stuff all the time. I am definitely going to put one of these together for her! :)

Oh, she is going to love that!
My little girl will be 5 next week. She and her brother love playing with the little stuffed animal doctor kit I made for them a few weeks ago. I love your real stethoscope! I might need to invest in one for our kit!
