Veterinarian – Career Day Idea

Career Day came up for my daughter and she wanted to be a Veterinarian.  I wasn’t sure how to pull that off at 1st with out her looking like a regular doctor. I used my sons real stethoscope he has from his science kit. The jacket we found on clearance after Halloween.  So with those 2 items. We grabbed her favorite- very loved kitty and we made her a Dr. name tag.

Everyone at her school got a kick out of the tag. I love it. I created the tag in Photoshop using her picture. Found some vet looking clip art off Google and made a fake logo etc. :) I love how it came out. We laminated it with a luggage tag. The clip on tag I had for years actually. It is from an old hospital tag I used when she was a baby in the NICU. So I am not sure where to get the clip part. Wish I knew.

HA HA! I just get a kick out of that tag. :)

My daughter LOVES animals. She is always checking out our Corgi’s health. :)

Pretty proud how simple a tag made her costume seem so real. And only took a few minutes of my time. It is the personal touches that make the difference.

    So cute. My nephew with Downs Syndrone was in St Louis Childrens Hosp for a month or so this winter and we got to know the nurses really well and they fixed my granddaughter Sammi (7 yrs old) up with all the nursing stuff. This pic looks about like she does when she’s wearing her nursing clothes and equip. Love your blog. I stumbled onto it yesterday.

    What a great idea! I love the tag – it makes the outfit. You can usually find the clip “thingies” at office supply stores or sometimes even Walmart. They are with name badge supplies and come in multiples. Hope this helps!
