Do your kids wake up complaining they are bored. Nothing to do. No toys to play with. As they are literally surrounded with toys in every room of the house. If only there was a way to get them excited about the toys they have. Well guess what. There is.. and I know you can do it easily. Back in March of 2020, my busy boys that are always one the go were now stuck at home. After a couple of days, they were bored with all their toys. So I collected random toys all over our house and made a Vet. I did not buy one thing for dramatic play set up. I will put links below if you are interested but you will probably be surprised what you can find in your house.

I use these products, and if you buy them I’ll probably earn a small amount of money.
Dr. Seuss’s Book of Animals – What’s not to love about Dr. Seuss?! It tangled my tongue like all his other books so the kids loved it! It’s a mix of real and fictional creatures that has wonderful teaching moments. Dr. Seuss plays with words like a musical instrument.
Maybe You Should Fly a Jet! Maybe You Should Be a Vet! – The text is full of whimsy and charm describing the endless possibilities of vocations out there in the world. Kelly Kennedy’s illustrations are fresh, engaging and guaranteed to capture the imagination. Every colorful page is filled with happy people employed in meaningful work, from the pizza maker to the plumber to the astronaut. It’s a positive book for every child who dreams of doing something special when they grow up!
