A Puppy Party.
Perfect for 4 year old girls.
We opted for a small at-home party this year with just a few friends. It was so lovely and let me pay extra attention to the party details without feeling stressed.
The puppy adoption party went something like this:
(+) Choose a puppy
(+) Name Your Puppy and fill out a Certificate of Adoption
(+) Give Your Puppy a Check-Up (we put all of our Doc McStuffins toys to good use)
(+) Decorate a Puppy House/Carrier. I had originally planned to use gable boxes, but instead we used these square gift boxes, cut an opening and I sealed the edges with washi tape. The girls then had a wide variety of stickers (including letters that spelled their name) to decorate their puppy houses.
(+) Make A Collar for your puppy.
Inspiration and free printables for this party from several sources, including:
(+) Pretend Play vet patient chart from A Longing Fulfilled Blog. I printed these in colour and had them laminated so that they can be used over and over again.
(+) Pink dog "Certificate of Adoption" (not shown) from Chickabug blog.
(+) DIY puppy collars made using craft foam sheets and stick-on jewels (found via AmericanGirlFan)
