We were invited by Petplan to take part in their Draw My Pet Dream Pet campaign. They challenged the kids put their artistic skills to the test by drawing their dream pet, this could be a real or imaginary type of pet – however weird or fantastic!
After drawing their pets, Petplan will turn them into soft toys based on their drawings – how cool is that!
The kids got busy designing their animals. Like most kids, they all love to draw so they enjoyed this challenge.
T designed a cat, but unlike your typical pet cat his cat is a fire breathing cat, who looks a bit like a cross between a cat and a dragon! It has sharp claws and spikes on it’s back along with the typical cute cat face!
Z went for a more down to earth a realistic pet. He would prefer a humble pet which doesn’t take a lot of maintenance, so he decided to draw himself some dream pet fishes in a little fish bowl, with plenty of colourful designs. I like how he has given them all different facial expressions, some are happy and some are sad!
Whatever pet you go for, having pet insurance is part of being a responsible pet owner. Since Petplan’s inception in 1976, their priority has been to keep the nation’s pets healthy and their owners happy. By offering the very best pet insurance policies and great customer service, they’ve helped millions of owners get their beloved pets back on their feet following illness and injury.
Petplan also works with more animal rehoming charities than any other pet insurance provider and are committed to supporting charities and the vital work they do – working with more than 1,200 charities throughout the UK and in 1994, they formed the Petplan Charitable Trust which has so far raised more than £7million towards a better, healthier world for animals.
Maybe your kids would enjoy drawing their own imaginary dream pet too – why not give it a go if you’re looking for something to keep them busy on a rainy day! What type of pet do you think they would design? A realistic one like Z or a fantasy animal breed like T?
This post has been possible thanks to Petplan, but all thoughts are my own.

Kaleidoscope Have fun making this Kaleidoscope craft with the kids. This simple kaleidoscope works best when it is held up to the light.
