oh, joy.  this was more fun than i expected.

we set up a pretend dentist office in the classroom.  it didn’t take the place of the family corner where dramatic play usually starts.  it was across the room so there was quite a bit of traveling back and forth (as well as wood deliveries from the block corner).

there was a waiting area, a reception desk and the one patient seat.

it posed a slight risk to have the clip on lamp, but there were no injuries and the effect was fabulous.

other supplies included coffee stirrers (as tooth counters), disposable changing pads for bibs and mats, blocks that were used as xray machines, and real xrays!

we had mirrors for friends to hold which proved helpful for doctor and patient:

d is for dog house

i brought this travel crate for the days our dog sally visited, then it was cleaned out, door removed and became a family corner prop.

i only wish i had a photo of friday when there were four (4!!!!) boys in it…with pillows and blankets.  all barking.

to be in the dog house at preschool is a good thing.
