Checkup With Elmo
Prepare kids for doctor visits…as they play!
Print this page and then invite kids to play doctor with Elmo. Kids can give a family member, friend, or favorite stuffed animal a checkup, coloring on or circling each body part they check. You might even create a pretend doctor’s office in a corner. Add props like a magnifying glass, notebook and pencil (for a prescription pad), bandages, a play stethoscope, and paper towels. A cardboard box can be a desk, and a button-down shirt can become a doctor’s coat!
