Walk a Dog

Pretend Play – Walk a Dog

B and his friend C have the best time “walking their dogs”. They put leashes (or strings) on their stuffed animals and take them to the park, feed them, teach them things, etc. I realize in the picture it looks a little disturbing but it really is so much fun and has provided hours of pretend play. Give it a try!

    My oldest plays vet with his animals. He makes them little beds and food centers, writes presciptions, asks for assistance in setting broken bones. It’s amazing how much it entertains him.

    I actually read about this idea in a book. Great minds think alike.

    How funny! I can’t believe I didn’t do that as a child- I was a stuffed animal freak!

    Hee hee, we have the same little dog. And if they thought to do it, I’m sure our dog would be walked like that.

    My 5 year old does the same thing. She asked me to wrap a scarf around one of her stuffed animals this week and was walking it. Great for creative play!
