Kids absolutely love having giveaways to bring home and to remember the party by. You can have them make picture frames for the party favors, (see pictures above). Just prepare the following materials: illustration board (half of 1/8 size), cardboard, cutter, ruler, pencil, eraser, glue, poster paint, paintbrushes, and decorative materials like gems, buttons, sequins, beads, feathers, and animal-shaped stamps.
Prepare colored letter cut-outs that spell “I Love My Pet" or use a heart instead of the word “love", for the kids to stick on the frames. Before you ask your students to paint and decorate, prepare the frames by cutting a rectangle in the middle of each illustration board and gluing the sides on a cardboard. Just be sure to have a slit in between where the picture can be placed. And when everything is set, it is time for the kids to get to work!
Let them be as creative as possible by allowing them to do their own designs. Just remind them that it should have a pet theme. Afterwards, ask them to bring a picture of themselves with their pets to be put in the picture frames. For those without pets, they can bring pictures of pets they would like to have someday. On the day of the party, arrange the frames with tied ribbons and printed tags with the name of the class and the label of the party, the date, and the students’ names.
