Drawings and Poems about Pets

Part of the Projects at Home Collection

Create a drawing of, and a poem about, a pet you love.

To get started with this project, check out this model:


  1. You can just create a drawing, or just write a poem, or do both as our model shows.
  2. The pet can be your pet, or any pet you know.
  3. Your poem can be any style you wish. It can rhyme or not.
  4. For drawings, it is often easier to draw from a photo. If you can take a picture of the pet with your phone, or have the picture sent to you, that picture won’t move or walk away while you are trying to copy it like your real pet may.
  5. Focus first on the main shapes, the placement head, body, and legs, before worrying about details.

Working on Projects at Home is different than working in school.
We do not give you lessons or directions.
We give you models of each project to look at carefully, and then you decide how to adopt the project for your interests, skills, materials, time, and any new ideas you have.
Your project does not have to look like the models—it can be inspired by the models.
If you are proud of what you created, we encourage you to share it online with the hashtag: #ProjectsAtHome.
