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!
