Who doesn’t love dogs? These easy Dog Crafts for Kids are perfect to celebrate man’s best friend, especially since 23rd March is Puppy Day!
There are so many different kinds of love in this world, which is probably why Valentine’s Day is not enough on its own! But if you were to look for the purest, most unconditional kind of love, you’re sure to find it from a little dog who wags his tail happily every time he sees you!
Yes, some people are dog people and some are cat people, but everyone will agree that a dog is utterly selfless and loyal to its owner, while cats can be well… a wee bit selfish. And when it comes to exercise, no one can beat a dog who jumps up and down for you to go on a walk!
With National Puppy Day coming up on 23rd March, it seems like a good time to celebrate man’s best friend. And if you’re at Artsy Craftsy Mom, you know best how we like to celebrate anything – with crafts! Get ready to enjoy these cute dog crafts that are perfect for kids of all ages.
10 Delightful Dog Crafts for Kids
Okay, dogs may be man’s best friend, but these little dog bookmarks from Red Ted Art are going to be your favorite reading buddy! We love the folding patterns and how detailed the bookmarks turn out in the end.
If you’d like to turn into a bouncy dog too, get yourself this printable paper crown. Just put it on and go around saying ‘Woof Woof’. Maybe try walking like a dog too – it’ll be quite a different kind of a workout!
Frugal Fun 4 Boys has a fun craft with paper rolls, which you can use to make different kinds of dogs. Out of the many breeds, some dogs are very good swimmers, and three dogs have even survived the sinking of the Titanic!
Craft Create Cook has a cute paper plate dog with a rather large nose! Did you know that dogs have a sense of smell that’s thousands of times as sensitive as humans’? In fact, a bloodhound’s sense of smell can be evidence in a court of law, and some dogs are even being trained to sniff out COVID-19!
If you’d like to let your special someone know how much you love them, there can’t be a more appropriate card than this one from Easy Peasy and Fun! Made in a cute heart shape, it lets that person know that your love is loyal and pure.
If you enjoyed Slinky in The Toy Story, you’ll love this clever paper chain craft from The Chirping Moms! Like Slinky, dogs can be quite smart; in fact, dogs have a sense of time and some stray dogs in Russia learnt to ride their subway system so they could get on and off at specific stops!
Red Ted Art has a cute little paper bag dog puppet which you can use to create a number of interesting puppet shows. You can include a cat puppet to make things fun, but in reality, dogs don’t have an innate enmity towards cats!
This little doggy from Craft Foxes is made from pipe cleaners and looks so soft and fluffy to touch! Go ahead and stroke it; studies show that petting a dog can lower blood pressure, stress levels and can also help with conditions like depression.
Have you seen dogs always panting with their tongues out? That’s how they cool themselves, since they don’t have sweat glands on their skin. 86 Lemons has some fun paper puppets that resemble panting dogs.
We love interactive crafts, and this one from Easy Peasy and Fun is a winner in our eyes! You may feel tempted to feed the dog with his mouth wide open, but be careful – chocolate can be toxic to dogs!
Aren’t these dog crafts absolutely cute? And they’re quite realistic too, so if you have a dog at home you better be careful – they’re known to be quite jealous of newcomers!
