Circle Dog Craft -
Shapes, Scissor Skills, Colors, and Counting Practice

circle dog craftThis circle dog craft can be used to teach a variety of skills.  You don't have to use all the thoughts for lessons... just choose the ones you're working on with your child.  There is a second template with the dog's body that you can optionally use.


Thoughts for Lessons:


  • This craft has lots of circles to cut out -- good scissor practice!  
  • You can precut the template into separate pieces (roughly) to make it a bit easier for beginning crafters to cut out the circles.


  • Point out that the ears and mouth are half a circle.


  • verbally instruct the children on how to assemble the shapes using the colors of the shapes.  (ie:  Take the black circle and glue it on the grey circle.).


  • show the children two circles and ask -- is this one bigger, smaller or the same size as that one.


  • Count the circles.
