Dog Party Ideas
I made a Happy Birthday banner in her party colors. For the pendants, I used scrapbook paper and then I printed letters on brown cardstock and cut around them with scrapbook scissors. The whole thing was held together by pink curling ribbon to attach each letter to the one before and after it.
Dog party games
A party wouldn’t be a party with out some fun dog birthday party games! As this was a family party for a 2 year old we kept it simple. First we turked the kids into dog by giving them all cute dog ears. For this simple sonstruction paper dog craft, we made a headbandout of white cardstock paper and tape. We cut light brown, white, dark brown, black, pink, or purple ears from foam sheets. The kids seemed to really enjoy being able to pick their own dog ears and looked so cute too! Some of the ears were low and large, some were perky triangular facing upward, and others were flowy and curly like a poodle.
Dog party for kids
The main activity was a Puppy adoption center. This was a HUGE hit! It was the perfect activity for the kids (2-7 year olds) and made a great parting gift too.
I had the kids pick a bone out of a hat that had a number on it. This was the random order in which they got to pick their puppy to adopt. I got one extra so even the last kid would have a choice. These super adorable, cuddly puppies were wonderful. I got them from Stuffed Safari. I love that they each had their own personality – they are so lovable!
The kids then gave each of their dogs a name and put that on their bone nametag which we attached with curling ribbon. Then we filled out their adoption certificate and gave each kid a Puppy Starter Kit bag to collect their other goodies.

The kids could then visit the remaining stations in whatever order they wanted (which helped minimize waiting too!). Here is the Dog Grooming & Pet Wash station where they could give their dogs a good wash. After the wash they were given a blanket with dog prints to wrap their puppies in to take home.
The Pet Supply Store had a dog bowl (from Target dollar section), Puppy Chow (Cocoa Puffs), and yellow tennis ball toy for each kid to add to their bag.
Finally, they went to the Vet Office to give their puppy a check-up before taking them home. They got Puppy Vitamins (gummy bears with label) to add to their bag too.
Finally, I took pictures of each kid with their puppy in the dog house. I included these in their thank you note.
Dog birthday party food
Since we were hosting out of town family I had the party at 2pm to allow them time to get here. It was a little too early for our birthday girl who was napping, but she did GREAT! It was also a nice time so we wouldn’t need to serve much food. We served pupcorn, puppy chow, dog bones (Scooby Graham snacks), Orange Sunrise Punch, and cake & ice cream. I found the paw print material I used as a tablecloth at JoAnn Fabrics and put a pink table skirt around it to polish it off.
Here is the birthday girl opening her presents! She was so expressive with Oohs as soon as the paper came off. It was so much fun! After opening presents she’d give out hugs to the giver. Curious what our 2 year olds favorite toys are? Here you go:
