For this project you will need two large and one small paper plate. Cut the small paper plate in half. Have the children paint them as they wish. Also paint one large paper plate.
After the paint is dry, cut scallop as shown for the dog's mouth. Layer the paper plates
with the top sides together, sandwiching the ears in place. Staple leaving an opening
at the bottom for the dog's mouth. Complete the dog by adding wiggly eyes and a pompom nose. This dog would look cute if it was painted like a Dalmatian.
