This book, Go Dog Go, is such a favorite I am sure it is engrained in the hearts and minds of almost every one – world wide. For me you cannot beat that party at the top of the tree – I have always wanted to go to THAT party!
I looked it up on the Web and for such a popular book I could find hardly anything, I thought there would be heaps of online activities and printables – well no!
So here is a Go Dog Go Activity!
All the way through the story is a subplot regarding hats:
“Do you like my hat?”
“I do not.”
And the hats get more and more fantastic… So we made some fantastic hats.
Meet the Players:
We used cardboard, watercolor crayons, bright magazine strips and scissors. We used a glue stick. Later we used pipe cleaners, feathers and tape.
Let’s Play the Game:
Step 1: We started with strips of card and water color crayons – they are bright and don’t smudge like pastels.
Step 2:The idea was that we color in half the strip.
Step 3: Some had other ideas!
Step 4: Then we took some bright magazine strips and cut them into random shapes, and stuck them onto the top half of the strip.
Step 5: Then chop, chop, snip, snip.
And there you go some strips of card with great ragged edges.
Step 6: Then we taped some feathers, pipe cleaners and tissue paper to the top of the inside of the strips.
Step 7: Rolled them up and stapled them to fit the appropriate headlet.
“Hello again. And now do you like my hat?”
“I do. What a hat! I like it! I like that party hat!”
