Crafting with Pets!

Here is a fun craft that will put a smile on your face and your pets. I have fostered 4 doggies that are my babies. Polly, Lucee, Hazel, and Betty. Each one with its own personality. My daughter saw a painting a dog did and showed it to me and I immediately said, “YES we Must do this!”

We choose to use canvas, you can do this on any media you would like. First I put blobs of paint on the canvas.

We first put down a blue plastic table clothe on the floor of our laundry room. Next, we put the canvas’ with paint blobs & swirls onto the plastic table cloth. Then we put Saran Wrap over the painting enough to tape it to the blue table cloth on all four sides. If you have doggies who love treats and are aggressive eaters, I suggest using more tape.

Here is the fun part.

Take peanut butter and put globs of it on top of the plastic above the globs of paint. I also put shredded cheddar cheese on top. You can use any food that your doggie likes and is safe for them to eat.

They loved their afternoon treat and would have liked to paint some more!

Here is the Finished Project!

Once the dogs were done eating we took the saran wrap off the canvas and put in the garage to dry. Drying will take about 48 hours.

If you look closely you can see that each doggie has signed their painting.

Not bad for a first time!
