My kids absolutely adore cats but I do not want any pets so they have to make do with my selection of easy cat crafts for kids. There are so many great cat craft ideas here from lantern making, to mask making and even puppets! DIY cat crafts are suitable from age 3/4 right up to older children.
Cats and kittens make the best pets. They are cute and in general look after themselves.
Unfortunately my kids do not have any pet cats but as we live in the country there are lots around for them to admire. As opposed to having a real cat or kitten I told my children we could make lots of cat crafts using different materials.
There are so many different breeds of cats around so I knew we could make our own cat family using my craft procedures.
We have made puppets, a Halloween witches cat, a mask for pretend play and even a lantern to decorate our house.
I do plan on adding lots more ideas as my kids and I get busy crafting. You might also be interested in my free cat worksheets found at the bottom of this post.
Easy Cat Craft Kindergarten
All these cat craft ideas come with step by step instructions and images. They also include free printable templates which make things simpler.
School age children can make these with some help from an adult.
An easy Cat craft for preschoolers might include handprint cats and painting activities. I do plan on doing a letter C activity in my letter craft collection. I will be basing this on a cat. This will be suitable for preschool kids and kids in early years education.
Cat crafts for older kits can include quilling, crochet and sewing. They could make hats, blankets and all sorts of fun gifts.
I also plan to do some cat in the hat crafts in the future as I know these are hugely popular with all age groups!
Can you think of other animal crafts you would like me to do a theme on? How about penguins?
