Medical role-play is a really popular theme with all children. Along with our scrubs and medical centre themes we have taken it a stage further with the Paramedic costume and Hospital theme. Our authentic Paramedic costumes certainly help with that transformation. To make dramatic-play even more immersive our Hospital pdf’s, available in Irish or English make it easy to set up your own Hospital. It can, of course, be combined with our medical centre pack or used with our Children’s scrubs costumes.
Our large format “I am a….”poster is designed for introducing new vocaublary where children can discuss Paramedics and hospital.
The Hospital resource pack is free to download for our Imagination in Action email newsletter subscribers. The pack is a digital resource and it will be emailed to you when you sign up.

Make your own Hospital
Our printable Hospital pack includes lots of resources so that you can easily set up a Hospital dramatic-play area of your own. In addition to the “I am a…” theme poster there is another large format poster, Welcome to the Hospital that can be used to designate a specific role-play area. The pdf includes A4 posters for the walls to designate different areas such as the Reception area or the Plaster room. We have included plenty of mark-making and writing opportunities with Patient charts, and of course, the personalisable Name Badges can be filled in and attached to a lanyard so that everyone knows just who is in charge.
What is included
The A4 posters included in the pack allow you to set up several of the different areas that you might find in a Hospital station.
*Identification bracelets for patients
All resources are available in Irish as well as English. You can choose which you prefer.
We always recommend using real-life and authentic props whenever possible. There are lots of props which can be reused for several themes such as basic furniture of chairs, tables, and shelves- reconfigure them into a hospital patient room or even an ambulance. Have a stock of paper, pencils and clipboards along with an old computer keyboard or monitor and you have a reception area ready to go. The contents of a first aid kit with all its bandages and plasters will be put to good use with Hospital dramatic-play.
