A popular theme in early grades is community helpers. Students learn about fire fighters, police officers, nurses, doctors, vets, teachers, farmers, and a few others. There are numerous crafts for every helper. A favorite in my class one year was the doctor's medical bag. The bags are simple to make and are fun for kids to role play with. They especially enjoy filling them with various medical supplies.

Total Time: 10-15 minutes

Yield: 2 bags

Supplies:

  • 2 paper lunch bags (any color)
  • scissors
  • glue stick
  • red construction paper (for medical cross)
  • other construction paper (any color for handles)
  • stapler
  • medical supplies (any appropriate for age of child)
  • marker

Steps:

  1. Cut approximately 5 inches off the top of each paper lunch bag.
  2. Cut handles for both sides of the bags out of any color of construction paper. I found it easier to fold half a sheet into a fourth and cut a square out of the middle. This leaves you with a connected double handle for each side, offering more durability.
  3. Staple a handle to both sides of the bag, making half go inside and half outside.
  4. Cut a first aid cross out of red construction paper for each bag. It helped me to draw them first! Glue the crosses on the front of bag. Add a name to the bag if you choose.
  5. Fill the bags with medical supplies. Obviously some items aren't appropriate for children, but if this is an at-home project you can be more lenient. Some examples of items to include are: Band-aids, cotton balls, gauze, kid scissors, Kleenex, tape, plastic bottle, and tongue depressors. You can also include cut-outs of items, like an x-Ray, syringe, medicine, thermometer, etc. Lastly, most Dollar stores have inexpensive packs of toy doctor items, such as stethoscopes, reflex hammers, cell phone, blood pressure cuff, as well as many more items.
