Dress up your pet day

Pets play an important role in our homes and our lives. Don’t worry if you don’t have a pet – you can still participate in Dress up your pet day! But before you begin – make sure you have permission to dress your pet, and PLEASE make sure your pet is a willing participant.

Pet stores have plenty of clothes, but you can be creative with making a cape, using doll clothes and even baby clothes if your pet is small enough.

If you do dress your pet, be sure to take a photo and share it with us here at HomeschoolHoliday.com.


If you don’t have a pet, or can’t use your pet to celebrate this day, there are some easy alternatives.

One great way is to use a favorite stuffed animal.

Even homemade costumes for a favorite stuffed animal count for Dress Up Your Pet day!
