Whether you have a puppy at home or just kids who’d like to have one, dog crafts for kids are really popular as they’re so cute and they take inspiration from something kids are already interested in.
I’m a great believer that if you want kids to be excited about doing something creative then you need to go with a subject that they’re already interested in and pet crafts certainly tick the box for that!
There are loads of dog crafts ideas here with tutorials that toddlers and preschoolers will be able to enjoy while you’ll also find crafts that are that little bit more challenging too which are suitable for older children.

Making puppets is great for kids as it’s a craft that they can play with afterwards. We made this paper bag puppy craft which are also a good excuse to practice using scissors as you cut out it’s floppy ears.
Using cardboard tubes and toilet paper rolls is always a popular idea for kids crafts because it’s a frugal way to be able to do something creative and when you have kids you’ll know that costs can really add up! These toilet paper roll dogs from Easy Peasy and Fun look super cute and I love that you could adapt them to make your favourite bread of pup or to look like your own dog.
This footprint puppy from Crafty Morning is just super cute for younger kids and would be a great keepsake to make with your child too, we love handprint and footprint crafts for this!

All of us want to encourage our kids to read so why not make this dog corner bookmark from Red Ted Art together, it’s the perfect excuse to get them to open a book too!
Create this dog pencil holder from Easy Peasy and Fun and (hopefully!) it will encourage them to put their coloring pencils and markers away when they’ve finished with them.
