With this pandemic still going strong, I've needed a lot of things to do and a lot of variety in them. I like to craft, read, and I want to be a veterinarian when I grow up, so my activities fall in those categories.
The first thing is a playset by Playmobil. It has a bunch of vet related trinkets for the lady. She comes with the stethoscope permanently in her ears, but I can't lose it that way. It also comes with a stack of books, a scalpel, tweezers, suture removal scissors, a needle, and a bunch of bottles and tubes and jars. The whole set comes in a nice case for carrying it in the car or wherever. The figures include a lady vet, a dog with a moving head, a puppy, and a cat with a scar that disappears and reappears.
The second thing is the Paint by Sticker: Travel book. It has twelve pages of thick paper that are brimming with numbered shapes. In the back of the book are sheets of stickers for filling in the outlines on the thick pages. The sticker sheets come with a small picture of the completed poster at the top, and I like to cut those out for another use.
Another book that I'm liking a lot is the American Girl Farm and Feast Book. It combines crafting and reading all in one! It's a great book because it tells you how to make produce from tissue paper. I used my leftover stock from the holidays and made my doll a whole farmer's market stand! I also like that it tells you how food comes from farms to your table. I made my doll a chicken, like the book showed, and it's so cute!
I hope you're keeping yourself entertained while you stay home. Tell me your favorite things to do around your house!
