Puppy Point of View craft

What does the world look like to pets? Help children understand how others see things, an important step in learning compassion, from a Puppy Point of View.

    Have you ever looked out of an upstairs window or airplane? Did things below look smaller? Changing your height changes what you see, or your perspective. Imagine if you were shorter. Think about what your baby sister or brother, or a dog or cat, sees.

    Pretend you are a puppy or other small creature. Sit on the floor or sidewalk and look around. What do you see? Do people, fences, and buildings seem taller? Do you notice different things about them, such as the smell of leather shoes or tree trunk textures? How do you think it feels to be a puppy?
