Grab a couple of cardboard tubes, some paint, scissors and glue to make this feline family. Use the downloadable Painting Guide or Suggestion sheet for inspiration. It has printable faces and tails for you to colour or just make up your own characters. It's up to you!

A quick activity and rather cute! Children can name them.
