August 21: Veterinary Week

image from

The fourth week of August is Veterinary Week. Why not let the kids create a prop box for a vet’s office? A prop box is a collection of toys, materials, and other supplies which allow children to use their imaginations to pretend around a certain theme.
Vet’s Office Prop Box


  • Stuffed animals
  • Boxes for cages
  • Pet toys
  • Food and water dishes
  • Leashes
  • Medical kits
  • Plastic gloves
  • Strips of material (bandages)
  • Pamphlets on animal care
  • Books about animals
  • newspaper


  1. The materials listed above are just a starting point. See what other ideas the kids might have.
  2. The boxes that hold 10 reams of computer paper are a nice size for prop boxes. They can be covered with contact paper to make them more attractive.
