Growing up, we had a little toy poodle named Misty. She was grey all over and my mother, who was a dog groomer, always cut her hair so that she’d have a little puff at the top of her head. She usually wore a blue collar.
Our kids have only asked for a pet a few times so far (thankfully), and I’ve managed to divert them each time. I am so not ready to have a pet and four children right now.
But when we got ready to make a new one of our coffee filter crafts for kids, I was totally open to making a coffee filter dog craft. See how we did it below!
Coffee Filter Crafts for Kids: Coffee Filter Dog Craft
To make this coffee filter dog craft, you’ll need the following: (Affiliate links provided here for convenience. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)
I went with a blue construction paper background because it makes it easier for the colors to stand out. But you can use any color you like.
Start by using a black crayon to draw two eyes in the top center of the coffee filter.
Add a light brown circle over one eye (to make a spot) and then color the rest of the coffee filter dark brown.
Color both areas in completely.
Now add an upside down triangle for the nose.
Draw a mouth by making two curved lines that come down from the nose in either direction.
Now it’s time to add some ears! We drew two floppy ears in brown crayon and then colored them in with a brown marker.
Then we decided to add a few whisker freckles on each cheek.
And a few bones for the background and we’re done!
This was a fun and simple craft that only took a few minutes. Plus, it’d be a great fit for a unit about dogs, pets, or even family (if you have a pet).
