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!

Lauren’s Cow is dressing up as a Vampire. We used an old pillow case for his smock and a trash bag for his cape. His fangs are paper.

You can also print and color our FREE Dress up your Pet coloring pages. Color these animal pages anyway you want then add hats, glasses and other fun items by coloring them or by cutting them from magazines and gluing them to the coloring pages.

There are 16 different coloring pages in this awesome FREEBIE!

For even more fun you can visit our TeachersPayTeachers store and purchase the Dress your Pet paper Dolls. This affordable activity comes with the FREE coloring pages as well as a set of 10 different color your own Pet paper dolls, ( DOG, CAT, HAMSTER, GUINEA PIG, MOUSE, TURTLE, BUNNY, FISH, SNAKE, & BIRD) and 2 color (Cat and Dog) pet paper dolls for your learner to be creative with.

Remember to come back here and post your silly pet pictures, using your pets, stuffed animals, coloring pages or paper dolls. Today is a day to celebrate that special bond we have with our faithful friends.
