HOUSTON, TX - Houston kids got to play doctor at The Health Museum on Saturday.  Don't worry, their patients were only teddy bears!

As part of the museum's "Teddy Bear Checkup," kids could use a stethoscope, add a band-aid and explore other medical practices with their furry friends.

The aim of the program is to make doctor visits less scary for children by teaching them some of the activities to expect at their next checkup.
