What You’ll Need
- Metal canister
- Duct tape
What to Do
- Paint a metal canister. (Use several coats if necessary.) Let it dry.
- Decorate the canister and lid with duct tape, felt bones, and painted paw prints.
Extend the Fun
For younger kids: It takes time to paint the can and let it dry. For little ones with little patience, wrap the can with a piece of construction paper instead, and let them decorate with crayons or chalk.
For older kids: Try your hand at baking some “gourmet” dog bones. Look for an online recipe made with wholesome ingredients like pumpkin puree and peanut butter. (A dog-bone cookie cutter is optional but adds authenticity to your endeavor.)
