Puppy Dog Adoption Birthday Party: children choose a stuffed dog, fill out adoption papers, named it, dressed it, take it to the vet, groom it, walk it, and played with it. Amazing inspiration for a puppy dog themed birthday party!
Yesterday I shared the decorations of the Puppy Dog Adoption Party, see them here. Today I want to share with you the AMAZING activities for the kids -A Puppy Adoption Centre! Every single kid (and adult) loved it, it was so cute and so much fun. The birthday girl’s mom, Heather, really out did herself. I LOVED it.
Choosing a Puppy
As guests arrived they were welcomed to the first centre, The Puppy Adoption Centre, where they choose a puppy to adopt. Each centre had one of these sweet signs with instructions.
At this centre the kids could decorate a box with the puppy’s name, fill out the adorable adoption papers, and pick out a collar and add the puppy’s new name.
There were lots of fun supplies to decorate the puppy boxes.
After decorating there were adoption certificates to fill out.
The cute free pintables for the adoption certificate can be found here, at the Chickabug Blog.
Heather made the cute collars out of ribbon, velcro, and gift tags. The kids loved being able to write the puppy’s new name on them.
Puppies R Us Centre
The next centre was The “Puppies R’ Us” centre, where they picked out outfits, leashes, a ball, and puppy treats.
The little puppy outfits were from IKEA.
I love the puppy treats, with their paper doily details, which contained a little snack of chocolate cereal -for hungry puppies, or their little owners. 😉
Here are the leashes. The were stiff, so the kids could really “walk” their puppies. And, they had a little button on the end that made a barking sound -so cute!
The next centre was the Grooming Station.
At this centre there as a brush and mirror for everyone, and a little towel made out of felt. The kids could spray their puppies with a little water, and wash them with a sponge, then dry them and brush them.
The final centre was a Vet Clinic.
Puppy owners were invited to give their puppy’s a check-up and pick up a container of puppy vitamins.
Here’s the vitamins, filled with gummy bears.
And here is the birthday girl, giving one to her puppy.
Looks like this little puppy needed a band aid on his leg.
It was so much fun going around to all the little activity centres, and gathering up the puppy supplies.
And it was great to have the little boxes to put it all in.
We went home with two new puppies, “Sophie” and “Lilly”, and I have to say they’ve been very quiet and good little puppies. 😉
With a Puppy Dog Adoption Party, and new puppies to love, life really is a party!
