Teach the kids to consult on these Seven Doctors: Dr. Sleep, Dr. Breath, Dr. Drink, Dr. Food, Dr. Sun, Dr. Move, and Dr. Green.
Here’s a short skit/story for kids to understand:
(Since children are very visual, you can make image props for the 7 Doctors)
You can also ask one of the students to act as the kid on the story.
Kid – busy playing with iPad says to himself:
“Yes! I won! I won! I did not sleep last night, I don’t mind because I won!”
Then the kid ate junk foods and chocolates and soft drinks and says to himself:
“Oh this is soooooo yummy! I can eat this every day!”
Then suddenly, his stomach aches and he feels so weak! (Act funny..)
Then the kid decided to go out and look for help. An old woman/guy saw the kid and said, “If you need to be well, go and find the 7 Doctors! Here’s the list, just call out 3 times and they will come out”
So the kid said, “Dr. Sun, Dr. Sun, Dr. Sun”
(Ask the kids to also call Dr. Sun 3x)
Then Dr. Sun came out (with sunny props)
“Yes my boy, if you want to be well, you need vitamins from the sun, early in the morning!”
Kid says, “please give it to me now, it’s still early”
“Ok just sit down, look up and open your arms” (ask the kids to also do the same)
After a while, Dr. Sun “Bye for now.. See you tomorrow..” Kid, “Bye.. Thank you Dr. Sun” (ask the kids to also thank Dr. Sun)
Kid, “who’s next?” “Ow, Dr. Breath, Dr. Breath, Dr. Breath” (ask the kids to also call Dr. Breath)
Dr. Breath, “Kid, if you want to be well, follow me..put your hands in your waist, inhale.. Exhale.. (3x, ask the kids to also do the same, standing up position)
Dr. Breath, “Bye for now, do this again tomorrow and you will be well!”
Actor Kid and other kids..”Bye Dr. Breath and thank you”
Kid, “now it’s Dr. Green! Let’s call him together! Dr. Green! Dr. Green! Dr. Green!”
And Dr. Green appeared, “Kid, if you want to be well, you must go out to green nature for it calms your mind and body.”
Kid, “really, should i?”
Dr. Green, “Yes, or would you like to be sick forever? How about you kids, do you want to be sick? If you’re sick you can’t run and play outside…”
Kid, “oh, i’d better go out to green nature!”
Kid, “Thank you Dr. Green! Bye!
Kid, “Oh I love this part! Let’s all call Dr. Food! Dr. Food! Dr. Food! Dr. Food!”
Kid, “Dr. Food, will you give me junk foods?
Dr. Food, “only if you want to be sick, but if you want to be healthy you should always eat the right foods at the right time…”
Kid, “ok then, i will eat what my mommy gives me.. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner..i will not slip a meal! Thank you Dr. Food! Bye..”
Kid, “now let’s call Dr. Move! (All together) Dr. Move! Dr. Move! Dr. Move!”
Dr. Move, “Hi kids, (jogging and dancing while talking) if you want to be well, you should exercise everyday! C’mon stand up and let’s try some routine”
All together doing simple exercise!
Kid, “Thank you Dr. Move! I will exercise everyday! Right kids?”
Kid, “Now, let’s call Dr. Drink! Dr. Drink, Dr. Drink, Dr. Drink!”
Dr. Drink, “hello kids… If you want to be well, you should drink 8 glasses of water everyday! Now let’s drink one glass of water!”
Kids, “ok, i like that! Let’s all drink water!”
Kid, “Thank you Dr. Drink! I will drink plenty of water everyday!
Kid, “Now kids, help me to call Dr. Sleep! Dr. Sleep, Dr. Sleep, Dr. Sleep!”
Dr. Sleep, (sleepy voice) “Hi kids, if you want to be well, get 10 hours of sleep a day…. Let’s all close our eyes and sleep…”
Kid, “Thank you Dr. Sleep, I will sleep early everyday!”
And so the kid stood up very happy!
Say all together with the kids, “I am healthy, I love my body, i will take care of me, because my body is a gift from God!”
Doctors: Dr. Sleep, Dr. Breath, Dr. Drink, Dr. Food, Dr. Sun, Dr. Move, and Dr. Green.
