You may (or may not) recall, for Felix's 4th birthday last year, I made him a toy stethoscope and doctors kit.
One year later, the original stethoscope was well and truly on it's last legs, so I decided it was time for an upgrade.
|One year later, much loved|
|A vast improvement, plus it doesn't fall off all the time|
Sewing this time. No knitting in sight, and perhaps a better choice.
The cardboard box I originally put the kit in had seen better days too. Now on my sustainable path, I came up with a solution using things I had around the house.
A lunch bag we weren't using for lunch, and some felt, has made the perfect (sturdy) doctors bag. It's been able to take a beating so far, with no signs of wear, as opposed to the original cardboard box, which didn't really stand up to the rigours of a child doctor!
I am very happy with these results, and am hoping I won't need to be revisiting another doctor's kit on his 6th Birthday!
