Crafts for Kids: Doggie, Doggie, Where’s My Word Family?


  • Dog and Dog Bowl Clip Art
  • Dog Bone Cookie Cutter (or do a Google image search and trace that)
  • Construction Paper
  • Plain Folder With Pockets

1. Using your cookie cutter (or clip art images) trace a bunch of dog bone shapes on construction paper and have your child cut them out.

2. Print 2 pictures of dogs (I found a BUNCH in Microsoft Word).
3. Cut and glue one picture on each side of the folder.
4. Label the sides with your word family (we did -at and -an)
5. Label each bone with words that will fit in each family.

6. Have your child insert the bone into the pocket they belong.

Educational Activities

  • Math:Before we labeled the bones with words, I had my son go around the house and measure his favorite things to practice non-standard measurement.
  • Fine Motor Skills: Having your child trace and cut the bones are great practice for these skills.
  • History/Social Studies: A big vocabulary word taught in the lower grades is responsibility. Discuss this word with your child and brainstorm a list of responsibilities that would come with having a dog as a pet.
