Give a kid a stethoscope, and inevitably a stuffed animal is getting a full inspection.
The Jackson Hole Children's Museum knows this, which is why it is opening its newest exhibit, Teewinot Tails, a partnership with Spring Creek Animal Hospital and Teton Toys. The exhibit will put kids in the place of the vets that take care our their animals, as well as the patients.
"Engage in imaginary play as a veterinarian, a concerned pet owner or even an injured or sick puppy, pony or lizard," says the press release about Teewinot Tails.
The exhibit opens Friday, with a "leash cutting" at 11 a.m. that will include snacks and activities. The museum will have free admission and will be open its normal hours, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
If you've got a budding vet on your hands, have them bring along their stuffed animal — no matter its maladies — for a check up.
