If you need an easy art project for early elementary kids, this Black Cat Art Project is a fun one to do for the month of October. The supplies are simple and each one turns out a bit different, but cute!

Lay yarn on for mouth and outline of the legs 

Glue with school glue

For and easier way to outline the front paws, make a template that kids can trace with pencil. This way, they know where to put the glue and yarn.  Let kids make their own expression for the mouth with the yarn. Some can be mad or funny looking. Let kids decide how they want it to look.

Some kids may ask about a tail. Let them add one. This cat’s tail is behind him! 

Have fun!

  1. This is so near, I’ll have to remember this for my nieces!

    Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J!

  2. What a fun craft to do with kids, my little guy will love this! Thanks for sharing at Talented Tuesday!

    • Thanks and have fun with your little guy! Simplify the string part for very young children by doing it in chalk.

  3. This looks like fun for both my 22 mo old and my almost 5 year old. The 5 year old would likely refuse to do the patterning… I cannot get her to practise her letters, tracing (usually), coloring in the lines which I feel is important along w child led free after activities. I tried to do it all. So likely the girls will just have a invitation type owl activity. Thanks for a great art activity for this week!!

    • You can vary the size and the whole project. Just have fun!

  4. This is such a cute idea. I need to get more involved in projects with my kids for sure! We are just so busy with homework and sports it’s so hard to find time these days. I’m gonna make time to try this for sure! Thanks for sharing with us at #ThrowbackThursday, hope to see you again this week!

    • Schedules for kids today get so busy! A little fun time each day is necessary! When my kids were small, we didn’t have all those sports so young. They played with the neighborhood kids in the backyard!

  5. What a cute idea! I love it! Thank you for sharing at the Alder Collective Link Party! Link up every Wednesday at 8:00 PM EST!
