There’s lots of imagination in a child. Playing doctor can be fun and making your own DIY Toy Stethoscopes for a party or play date is even better.
What’s a Doctor without a Doctors Coat and Stethoscope? Since we were having a Doc McStuffins #disneyside playdate I knew I needed to have one for each “doctor” but I also knew I needed to keep the cost down so that’s where I had to get creative.
How to make a Toy Stethoscope
Here’s what I did to make these easy and affordable (around $2 each) stethoscopes.
Step 1: Cut everything -ribbon 13 inches long, 2 circles, heart and put little slits in the earplugs
Step 2: Fold the ribbon over about an inch and glue it down ( you want it so you can slip it on, but also that it doesn’t fall off once the plugs are glued on
Step 3: Glue the circles on both sides at the open end of the ribbon
Step 4: Glue the heart on the front of the circle
Step 5: Slip the ribbon on the headband
Step 6: Glue the earplugs on each side (I found it’s best to glue on each side of the headband rather then the tip of the headband)
Step 7: Let dry then start examining your toys!
DIY Toy Stethoscope
I love that you can make them anyway you want. All of mine were different and super colorful which the kids loved. It’s the perfect favor for a Doc party and what’s even better is it’s really something the kids will play with after.
I only wish I had made enough for the adults attending too, because I know I wish I had one!
