If you have a budding physician on your hands, she probably already has a doctor's coat and pretend doctor kit in her playing repertoire. Her ensemble isn't complete, however, without an official looking doctor's badge. Making such a badge is a simple process, and the finished product will provide the finishing touch to your child's doctor costume.
Draw a rectangle on a piece of blank white paper. Use the plastic badge holder as a guide for the appropriate size. Cut the rectangle out.
Glue your child's picture to the badge. Write his name underneath the photo using a black marker. Make the badge even more official by adding M.D., which stands for medical doctor, next to his name.
Write additional details -- the name of a hospital and the date the badge was issued -- on the badge using colored markers. Add an authentic looking bar code on the badge using a thin black marker.
Slip the doctor badge into the plastic badge holder and clip it to your child's doctor coat.
