Teddy Bear Clinic

Loading Events

Join Brooklyn Children’s Museum on Sunday, April 7 between 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. in collaboration with One Brooklyn Health for our first Teddy Bear Clinic! Become the doctor as you guide your teddy bear through their first doctor’s visit and learn all about what happens during a typical well-child appointment. Through role-play guided by real doctors and medical staff, you will learn about medical procedures and equipment used at the pediatrician’s office and become more comfortable on your own next trip to the doctor. After your teddy bear’s appointment, drop by our medical art center to make a unique artwork using medical instruments before visiting our pretend pediatric dental clinic to learn more about visiting the dentist.

Remember to come ready with your own bear or other stuffed animal! The museum will have a limited supply of furry friends to distribute.

This event is sponsored by Brookdale Hospital’s Department of Pediatrics, Child Life and HealthySteps Programs.
