Simple dog crafts are fun for the entire family. These projects are specifically chosen because they are fun for kids and can involve the family’s dog. Kids love to make things for their dog, or try out ideas on the dog…and many dogs enjoy being part of whatever activity is going on.
You can even use these selected kids’ craft ideas for school or church fundraisers or to benefit dog rescue organizations.

Bake up some homemade dog treats and package them with dog-themed packaging and ribbons. We will show you how with photos of actual packages of dog treats.
Of course, the dog will benefit from these activities, but the good part is that the kids will not be in front of the television set or the computer. Cooking and do-it-yourself projects, which require the following of instructions and directions, serve to stimulate the minds and brains of all of those who participate.
