Make your own firehouse mascot with the Sparky the Dalmatian Bowl Craft. Constructed from a paper bowl, colored paper, markers, and glue, this adorable craft is sure to be a hit with the toddler crowd! You better stock up on paper bowls because after making one of these cute puppies, your toddler may be so excited that he or she decides to make all 101 Dalmatians!

What you'll need:

How to make your dalmatian craft:
  1. Print the Sparky the Dalmatian Bowl Craft template onto white cardstock. Cut out the ears. (see photos)
  2. Trace the top of the bowl one inch from the bottom of a piece of white cardstock. This will be the fire hat. When cutting out, leave a one inch margin on the bottom of either side for the brim of the hat. (see photos)
  3. Glue strips of red streamers to the hat. Cut any streamers that hang over. (see photos)
  4. If desired, draw a fire badge on yellow cardstock and cut out. Write the name "Sparky" on it or come up with your own name for your Dalmatian! (see photos) Glue the badge to the front of the fire hat.
  5. Glue the ears to the side of the bowl towards the top. Glue the fire hat on top of the ears, at the top of the bowl. Allow the glue to dry. (see photos)
  6. Glue the wiggly eyes to the side of the bowl facing the fire hat. Allow the glue to dry. (see photos)
  7. Using the large hole punch, punch several circles out of the white paper and glue to the black ears. Allow the glue to dry. (see photos)
  8. Using a black marker, draw a mouth and nose on the top of the bowl. Draw black spots around the bowl for the Dalmatian's spots. (see photos)
  9. Sparky is ready to ride the fire engine! Schedule a visit to your local fire station and bring him along to meet a real Dalmatian! For additional fire safety reinforcement, brainstorm fire safety tips with your toddler and write them along the rim of the bowl.
