TikTok, like any online video platform, is a smorgasbord of adorable animals. The latest viral trend over there are videos of dogs painting pictures. Not only are the vids adorable, but some of the results look like … actual art!
The first thing this trend brings to mind is likely your dog and home entirely covered in paint. But the folks over on TikTok, taking a cue from a former viral sensation, have discovered a preventative secret: plastic bags and peanut butter.
To allow their pooches to explore their creative sides, dog owners just dot or squirt a few different colors of paint all over a piece of canvas. Next, they coat a plastic bag with peanut butter. Careful not to disturb the paint, they slip the canvas inside the PB-coated bag and let their pups lick it clean.
After the canvas sits for a while, they pull the tongue-created painting out of the bag and, in some cases, have something new to hang on the wall. Eat your heart out, Picasso!
There’s no shortage of adorable pups unleashing their peanut-butter passion. The hashtag #dogpaintingchallenge will give you pages of scrollable canine artistes. Collectively, the videos have garnered over 14.4 million views at this writing.
If you’re a dog mom or dad, this might be a pawesome activity for your furchild. Then, like all proud parents, you can display the fruit of his labor on your fridge.
