Love “Go, Dog, Go!” as much as our family does? Get the whole family (pups included!) outdoors with this fun Stoplight Toss Tutorial inspired by the book. A fun Kitchen Stories post from Forks and Folly.
One of our favorite books of late is “Go, Dog, Go.” by P.D. Eastman. Will loves it because he can read most of the words (yay!!). James loves it because it covers his three favorite topics: counting, colors and dogs. Doesn’t get better than that!
After reading the book about a dozen times (in just one morning), I realized it was time to put the book down and get outside. And, what better way than to create a fun outdoor game based on our recent read… with Molly-the-dog included.
Molly, at age 14, is slower than she used to be, but still has plenty of pep to keep up with my little nuggets. God bless her. I keep her energized by feeding her her favorite foods – including Purina Beyond.
Why Purina Beyond? Besides being available at my local Kroger, my reasons include that real meat, poultry or fish is the #1 ingredient, and that there is no corn, wheat, soy or by-product meat.
I love that there are no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. The ingredients are safely sourced and the natural nutrition is backed by pet nutritionists.
It’s also conveniently on sale! Shoppers will be able to grab an exclusive digital coupon for $3 off any Purina Beyond dry dog food online at Kroger (until 6/29/17).
With Molly fed and ready to go, it’s time to get outside and play!
Stoplight Toss Tutorial inspired by “Go, Dog, Go!”
The game is really simple to make:
Find a scrap piece of rectangular cardboard and trace three circles.
Cut out each circle using a heavy duty craft knife.
I had to tape the edges of the cardboard, and then I spray-painted it black. You can totally skip this step if you like.
Next, it’s time to decorate your lights. I let the kids help me with this by gluing on balls of tissue paper.
Puncture two holes on the top of your stoplight, then string twine through. I hung mine from a bird feeder hook in the yard.
Now, it’s time to play! 1 point for a red, 2 points for a yellow, 3 points for a green. 4 points if you get a matching ball through the corresponding hole!
Looking forward to lots of fun this spring with our Stoplight Toss game! Love this game idea? Find more inspiration for your family and pups here!
