In honor of Halloween, let’s make a fun new feline friend!
Materials: Black, white, pink, and green/yellow construction paper, scissors, and glue
Step 1: For the first step, take the black construction paper and fold it hamburger style! (Don’t fold it hotdog style, which is long and skinny.)
Step 2: Cut black construction paper into a circular archway. After cutting, you’ll have an archway and two semicircles. Put semicircles away for now.
Step 3: In this step, we will add feet to the cat’s body. (the archway). Fold the bottom of the body outward to create a stand, which acts as feet.
Step 4: Pick up one of semicircles, which will be used to make the cat’s tail. You can choose to cut either a wavy or straight tail.
Step 5: This step is about making the cat’s ears! Pick up the black construction paper once more, and cut two small triangles out of the corner.
Step 6: We will now use the yellow/green/white construction paper to make the eyes. Cut the color of your choice into two small circles.
Step 7: Return to the black contraction paper and cut two more small circles. Make sure they are smaller than the circles you cut for the eye, because these are going to be the pupils!
Step 8: It’s time to make the cat’s cute little nose! Pick up the pink construction paper and cut a small triangle.
Step 9: Now it is time to glue it all together! Pick up the untouched semi-circle from before and glue the colorful eyes onto it. Let the glue dry for a few minutes and then glue the pupils to the eyes. Once again, wait for the glue to dry and then glue the nose down to the center of the cat’s face. The last thing we will glue on the face is the small black triangles to the top of the cat’s head, on opposing sides
Step 10: The face is now complete and we can attach it to the body! Take the face and glue it to the arch we cut in the first step.
Step 11: The final step is to glue the tail to the back of the cat’s body!
Congrats on making a new feline friend! Don’t forget to name them too!
