When the baby is finally potty trained and older siblings begin kindergarten, chances are, you\u2019ll begin unloading all the infant clutter around the house. There\u2019s no need for these items, right? Not so fast. The older kids get, the more they begin testing their imaginations with games like "school," "doctor" and "babysitter," and the sets offered in stores or online can be expensive for a young family. Check out some ideas for inexpensive kits that Indianapolis sitter Jenna Hildebrand has found helpful for her young ones during play time. Baby Diaper Bag Kit You probably have more than one diaper bag lying around. If not, grab an old purse or book bag, and begin filling. \tAll of the nearly empty travel-size baby powder, lotion and shampoo bottles can be cleaned thoroughly, using the empty container as play for the diaper changing station. \tThrow in a few leftover diapers (the smaller the better) \tDig through the early infant phase supplies and grab a small travel changing pad, newborn bottle, comb and brush set. \tIf you haven\u2019t already moved along the newborn clothes, grab a small onesie or sleeper before handing off for donation or a yard sale. Doctor\u2019s Kit In a small Tupperware container, fill with these items most likely lying around the house or even in an old medicine cabinet. Be careful as to which "supplies" you put in the container based on the age of the child. Some items may need to wait till children are older. \tGather some adhesive bandages, a leftover sling or wrap bandage from an old injury. \tWe all have extra masks! Throw one in for the doctor of the family. \tHave any tongue depressors from a leftover craft? If not, often, your pediatrician doesn\u2019t mind sharing one at your next appointment. \tMany parents use latex gloves for cleaning and\/or diaper changes. A pair of these come in handy for little ones performing "surgery." \tA small pad and pencil for writing prescriptions. \tIf you have an old thermometer (make sure it isn\u2019t a glass thermometer), take the batteries out and allow your child to take your temperature. Teacher\u2019s Kit Each year as school comes to a close, teachers send home the leftover supplies your older child didn\u2019t use. Save some of these for playing school over the summer. \tPut together a set of pencils, pens, crayons and markers. \tAdd an old spiral notebook or loose-leaf paper. \tIn last year\u2019s school returns, you may have some old textbooks or workbooks to use (and this helps with practice too!). \tThrow in a few envelopes and leftover stickers. \tAdd some chalk (either for outdoor use or with a chalkboard) and\/or dry erase board and markers. \tTake the lenses out of an old pair of glasses for the "official" teacher look. Let your imagination go as you see items you might have otherwise thrown away with a new purpose. If you\u2019re not sure, ask them! Children often see something in a miscellaneous item we parents don\u2019t.
