There were lots of FUN Summer activities that we missed.
For the past days, we are having a glorious Summer like Fall weather.
We decided to do an outdoor craft activity, PAW Painting.
Materials you need:
1) covering material (we recycled a clear large laundry bag).
2) tape (we used painters blue tape)
3) paper (we used a thick drawing large paper)
4) non-toxic washable paints
5) brush (we used soft cotton ropes and tied together)
It is recommended to do this Paw Project on a flat surface.
Grassy area on your backyard is not recommended.
Cover your work area and place a tape on edges and corners.
Also, tape the corners of the paper on the cover.
2) Place your dog paw on the paper.
3) Use another brush an apply another color on one of your dog’s paw.
4) Ask your dog to walk around the paper.
5) Repeat steps 2)-3)
Wash/Rinse your dog’s PAW thoroughly with water.
Most importantly have lots of FUN … but …
I do not suggest that you sit down on the paper.
Wala!!! What do you think?
My mom said this is a good practice as I need to PAWautograph my up-coming book, Sugar’s Furry Friend. Lots of Golden Thanks for those of you who pre-ordered. It will be available on October 24th.

OH OH, you got my Mom thinking on how we can do that her! BOL! Lovies, Miss Mindy
Wow thats beautiful, we will have to try it some time
Don't forget that all-important step for a super-clear paw-print: Trimming the hair between the pads of the foot before starting!

That's really pretty, Sugar!
Oh, how fun! I can imagine the rainbow mayhem that would ensue when doing Elka's masterpiece!
I've been thinking for awhile, though, about getting her paw prints using an ink pad, though. Granted, I've also been thinking about teaching her how to "use" a marker or paintbrush. So maybe!

That paw painting can be challenging! I know – I tried it once. I didn't like it all that much, but Mom said I did a good job!
You are very talented Sugar! I don't think my mommy would let me do that because I don't stand still so efurrything would get painted!

Sugar, we think you might have a new career as an artist. Beautiful work you have there. We don't think we would ever convince the Momster to let us try that, she says she has enough to deal with the little bipeds and paints:) But we will ask nicely.

Wow that sure did look like lots of fun Sugar!
I will see if I can talk the Mel into helping me out!
Kolchak Puggle says
What an adorable idea Sugar! The Mama totally wants a big bright paw print painting for the dog room now. Thanks for the idea.
What a fun idea! Sadly, both of my boys hate having their paws touched so I don't think this would work with them.
You're quite the artist, Sugar!
Wow, you are very talented and artistic! Very nice.
Hugs and wags, Mistaya and Maggie
Your such an artist Sugar!
What talent…a real work of art!
You might have a new career, Sugar!

Is your name Sugar Pawcasso? Because I think it is, your painting belongs in a museum!

BZ Training says
You are quite the artist, however the boys would probably get more paint on me than on the paper! 🙂
Fisher and Staff says
Your are an awesome artist, Sugar, and I think you should definitely autograph your work and get it copy-righted.
Piappies World says
That's pawesome Sugar! It would be great if we can try it some time.
