Hollydog Cutouts (included below!)
brown paint (brown sugar color)
Step 1: Gather your materials, and squirt some paint onto a smooth surface. Have your little ones use a fork to transfer the paint onto their paper plate! This is great two step process to build fine motor skills and boost creativity!
Step 2: After your paper plate has dried, cut out your Hollydog pieces. Depending on the age and skill of your little ones, you may want to have these pieces pre-cut for the activity.
Step 3: Have your little ones use a glue stick to place each Hollydog part on her cute face! Have an example already made so they can have a reference. The red collar is glued to the back rim of the plate. Your little ones might need a helping hand with this tricky gluing. Remember, always let them try first!
Step 4: Step back and admire your beautiful Hollydog. She is so happy to have a friend like you!
Oh, Look! I spy some Hollydogs!
“My Hollydog” Picture Book for Preschool
“My Hollydog Rides in the Car” written by Charise Leemis and illustrated by Amanda Leemis.
