Doggie Treats


For this DIY, we’re making no-bake Doggie Treats! This DIY allows learners will familiarize themselves with materials and measurements while also working on their gross and fine motor skills. Using pumpkin puree, peanut butter, and a few other ingredients, we’ll create treats your dog or a dog close to you will love!

What You’ll Need:

  • One-half cup of pumpkin puree (fresh or canned)
  • One and a half cups of dry oats
  • 2 tablespoons of peanut butter or other nut butter substitute
  • 2 tablespoons of milk or milk substitute
  • A tray
  • A bowl
  • Tool for mixing (e.g., wooden spoon or spatula)

Building Tips and Tricks:

  • Don’t be afraid to use your hands to mix! It can provide an added sensory experience for your child.
  • Keep in mind that bigger treat balls will take longer to set, so keep that in mind. Ours took about 20 minutes in the freezer.
  • To accommodate any sensitivities, peanut butter can be swapped for any nut butter except macadamia, pecan, pistachio, and walnut butter.  Always consult with your vet before feeding your pet any homemade treats!
  • Treats will last about a week in the airtight container, but I’m sure you won’t be able to hold onto them that long!
