How to Play with the Big Book of Boo Boos Game
The Doc McStuffins Big Book of Boo Boos game is all about imagination. You can take virtually any object (especially a toy) and diagnose it with the same ailment as any of the toys included on the game cards. If your child has had the opportunity to view any of the Doc McStuffins episodes (you may be able to check out a copy of the DVD at your local library), he or she can play out the diagnosis and healing treatment for the toy. If they’ve never seen Doc McStuffins, just explain the recommended healing/repair for the toy (included on the card) and ask the child to “Doctor” the toy.
Extension Activities: Print two copies of all the cards to create a matching game. You can play “go fish” until all the cards are matched. For a memory game turn all the cards back side up on the floor (make sure to have two copies printed of each). Flip over one card and try to find its match. Keep flipping (and turning back over when a match is not found) until all the matching pairs are found. You can also use the cards to play hide-n-seek. Select the cards that match the toys you already have in your home. Hide the toys. Stack the cards and pull one at a time and ask your child to go find the toy. Once the toy is found, ask your child to doctor the toy as prescribed on the card.
