Halloween, Cat, Paper Plate, Toddler, Preschool


A great paper plate craft which involves painting, cutting and sticking to create an arching cat, perfect for a Halloween decoration. I made this with my three year old but did all the cutting myself. Over 5's would be able to do more of this craft themselves.

I planned a black cat for Halloween but my son was very insistent that it should be blue, so blue it is.

Time: 15 minutes
Age: 5 to 10s
Level: Medium

Materials
1 paper plate
Paint
Scraps of black and white paper
Black marker

Method
Paint a paper plate all over in whatever colour you choose.

Cut an arch from the centre which will leave you with the body of the cat.

Using the cut out arch, cut a circle for the face, two triangles for the ears and a curve for the tail.
Tape or glue the head, ears and tail to the back of the body.

Cut out a couple of eyes from some white paper and draw a couple of circles then stick to the face of the cat.
Draw on a nose and mouth.

Cut thin strips of black paper to make whiskers and stick onto the face.

You can stick the cat on your wall for a fun Halloween decoration.
