Paper plate cat craft

paper plate cat crafts for kids

If you have been following the blog at all you may have noticed that a good majority of our crafts are animal based. All of the crafts we make are designed to fit in with the kid’s interests and my son has been interested in animals for as long he’s been able to walk and talk. He has a whole safari of animal crafts, toys and books stashed throughout the house. He loves to learn about his favourite animals too. For today’s craft he wanted to make a cat, so we came up with this cute paper plate cat craft, my little guy is so pleased with how they turned out and I can see why!

You will need:

  • Paper plate
  • White and black paper/card
  • Coloured paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Take your white card and cut out two pointy white ears for your cat. Then, from your pink paper you’ll need to cut out two slightly smaller inner ears. Glue the inner ears down onto the outer ears and then glue them in place on the back of your paper plate.

Now to make the eyes! Cut out two black circles to make the base of the eyes. Next cut out two slightly smaller coloured circles to make the iris’. Glue your coloured circle onto your black circle and then cut out an oval black pupil. Glue the pupil down in the centre of your cat’s eye then secure the eyes down on the plate.

Cut out a rounded pink triangle to make the nose. Glue it down centrally on the plate – just below the eyes.

Next it’s time to give your cat a mouth, we cut our W shaped mouth out of black paper but if you have a good black marker you can simply draw it on instead – this might be easier for younger children. Once you’ve added the mouth, take your black paper and cut out some long thin strips to make the whiskers. Stick them down on either side of the face and then put your cat aside to dry.

The final piece that you will need to make is the collar. To do this you’ll need to cut out a banana shaped piece of paper and a yellow circle for the name tag. Glue the tag down onto your collar and then secure the collar in place on the back of your plate.
