Play Tip of the Week

Creating a Masterpiece in the Doctor's Office            

I When my kids were young (toddlers thru age 11 years old) I would carry some

sharpened colored pencils or crayons with me when we went to the doctor's office.

Then, during the long waiting time in the examination room, we would draw pictures

and color them on the white paper they pull out over the exam table.


Sometimes we'd also play tic-tac-toe or connecting dots or any other imaginative

game drawing on that giant paper on the exam table to pass the time.  This always

seemed to please the doctor and he'd say, " Can I keep this?", which would make my

kids happy and a little less tense about the doctor check-up. Sometimes the doctor

would even spend a few minutes drawing on the paper with my kids too!
