Paper Plate Dog

My daughters favorite word right now is “Dog”. She doesn’t say doggy, or puppy. It’s always simply “Dog”. Sometimes its a dog, sometimes its an elephant, but regardless, it is “dog”. Her love of dogs of all shapes and sizes has inspired this activity.

 

Materials

  • paper plate
  • black and white construction paper
  • googly eyes
  • crayons or markers
  • glue

 

We started with a blank paper plate, eight spots cut out of construction paper, ears cut out of construction paper, and two googly eyes. I drew a little nose and mouth on the paper plate. If your child is older, they can draw it on themselves. I’m not an artist, so it will likely look better than mine.

Next, I helped my daughter glue. She put the spots on the face, then the ears. Lastly, I helped her get the eyes on it. I let it dry a little bit then added on the ears. As with most of the activities I post, the older your child, the less guidance they will need.
