My little boy loves animals so I thought it would be fun to set up a little vet play area.
We set up a veterinary table where he could give his teddies a check up, a spoon of (pretend) medicine, a plaster, and a sticker for being well behaved :)

I gave him a empty box, a sponge, and a towel so he could bathe his patients. Here is Mr Dinosaur getting cleaned up before his check up :)
We set up a feeding area. I filled a tub with porridge oats and gave him some yogurt pots to use as feeding bowls. He used a spoon to fill the pots with food for his teddies.
I also cut out some cardboard bones and we decorated them for his pets to play with :)
While we were out shopping we had a look in our local pet shop and talked about all the things you needed to look after animals and had a look at the toys you could buy. Some time this week I will be getting the recycling box out and the gloopy glue for them to design and make their own animal toys (not intended for real animals)
