When it comes to kids’ crafts, I like projects they can make and use rather than just make and throw away. During a recent sleepover in my house, I enlisted the help of two kids to try out one of the DIY projects I have bookmarked on Pinterest.
Using fleece fabric left over from winter projects, we made several braided-rope dog pull toys. This was the perfect summer craft for kids. The pull-toys were simple to make (the most difficult part was taking the pictures), cost us nothing, kept the kids engaged and best of all? Our dog loves them.
Here are the instructions, written by one of the kids:
Update: We made these toys for our dog years ago, and she loved them. They lasted a long time too, although that might differ depending on how rough your 4-legged friends are with their toys.
