Nicole™ Crafts Paint Bucket Puppy

You don't have to give this puppy treats (because he busy holding yours)! Nicole Crafts acrylic containers are inexpensive and easy for little hands to craft and create! Let them go wild with pom poms, wiggle eyes and chenille stems...kids will have a blast, whether at a birthday party, camp or at an after school program!
