The naming of dogs is a difficult matter, It isn’t just one of your holiday games; You may think at first I’m as mad as a hatter. When I tell you, a dog must have three different names. Inspired by T.S. Eliot “The Naming of Cats”
This is a fun activity. Give a dog a shape body.
The resource has a couple of pages with faces in different shapes, from circles and hearts to crests.
You can leave it to your child to pick the shape of the body. This requires quite a lot thinking and planning. Or you can tell your child to pick a specific shape. The latter is a great way to learn the names of different shapes. And it is perhaps even tricker!
For extra fun, tell your child to give the dog a name. To invent fun shape names is a great challenge. For extra fun add Christmas ideas into the naming of the dogs. So this means that the dogs might end up with three names.
