Children can role play being vet or vet nurse if Crafty needs a few stitches putting into a cut leg (broken seam!)
The booklet, written and checked by vets explains how a vet stitches a real pony’s cut leg and the clear diagrams show the equipment used.
The set includes a syringe for ‘injecting’ Crafty Pony with sedative/anti tetanus/antibiotics, gauze swabs for cleaning the wound, a needle and thread and scissors to stitch the cut, finally a ‘vet wrap’ bandage for putting over the wound to keep it clean.
The fully illustrated instructional booklet helps children to learn about stitching (suturing) a cut on a pony
Children can learn and practice
Children can learn how a vet sutures (stitches) a cut on a pony.
Children can role play with their Crafty Pony, this can help children to understand and be less concerned if their real pony (or even Crafty Pony!) gets a wound.
Creative role play helps to develop confidence, skill and manual dexterity.
