Suggested Family Activity • Summer Reading: Show Off Your Love of Your Pets

There are lots of great craft projects you can make to show off your love of your pets.  The website DLTK-Kids has several fun ideas that only use basic supplies such as paper and crayons.  To find out how to make a paper model of a Siberian Husky dog, check out their instructions here https://www.dltk-kids.com/animals/m-model-husky.htm.  Brown paper bags are very versatile (and cheap!) craft project supplies.  The website also has instructions to make a cute puppy dog out of one.  Directions can be found here https://www.dltk-kids.com/animals/mbagdog.htm.

White paper plates are another inexpensive craft supply to have on hand.  DLTK-Kids has a funny hamster face that is made from one – check it out here https://www.dltk-kids.com/animals/m-plate-hamster.htm.  Or if kitty cats are your pet of choice, they have a super easy cat craft for young children that is made by gluing various sizes of circles together.  Find the instructions here https://www.dltk-kids.com/animals/mcircle_cat.htm.

If you do not have a printer at home to print out any of these templates, ask your local library to print out the templates for you.  Since it is for our Summer Reading Program projects, we will not charge you!

We would love to see pictures and/or videos of this day.  Send them to summerreading@nereg.lib.ms.us
