Crafting with children is not only fun, it’s a great way to bond and develop relationships. You can talk about what you are doing, discuss characters and come up with ideas as you create your masterpiece.
In fact, you can spark your child’s imagination by discussing how loyal Max is to the Grinch and talking about dogs and pets. You can come up with some fun names for dogs and create a list of pet names.
You may also want to make lots of other pets or crafts with the kids. We have a whole heap of free printables here on Craft Play Learn and a fun section on animal crafts. Enjoy.
