Puppy Dog Party Ideas
Invitations are easily made for a dog party birthday theme.
On the fronts of pretty blank cards glue 5 small circles so they look like a puppy dog print.
One large circle in
the center with 4
smaller circles for the toes above it.
Puppy Dog Decorations
Make a dog house out of brown tissue paper - twist the tissue paper into long tubes and tape to the wall to look like boards. Use black tissue paper in the shape of a rectangle for the door and hang a sign on the front with your favorite dog name.
Set up a fun craft for the guests and let them make dog ears from headbands and felt. Set out different colors of felt and fabric for them to choose from.
Face painting - paint the guests faces to so that they look like their favorite dog. Black noses, whiskers and lots of party fun!
Puppy Dog Party Games
Fill up a wading or swimming pool with some sand - enough for kids to dig through and hide the objects. Then hide some prizes inside the sand. Each child get 10 seconds to quickly dig through the sand to find a prize. When they find a prize then the next child gets a turn to dig.
This game can be turned into a relay race for two teams by either having two digging areas or separating the sand in half so each team gets 1/ 2 of the wading pool to in which to dig.
You can also hide dog biscuits in the sand and have teams race to see how many they can find in a 5 minute time limit. Have kids line up one behind the other and one at a time run to the pool, dig for a bone and then return back to their team. Set up containers for each team to deposit the found bones. They can only bring back one dog bone at a time.
See our party games page for fun ideas on obstacle courses and relay races for your dog party.
