Cat Scissor Skills Craft

Pin It
My oldest loves crafts that involve cutting up paper.  I have been trying to come up with more ideas for him to be able to work on his scissor skills and have fun.  That is what I did with this craft idea for a cat.

What we used:  

black paper, green paper, pink paper, pink pom pom, glues, scissors, paper plate.

What we did:  

I gave my son a plate, black pieces of paper and his safety scissors.  While I sat with him cutting his paper I cut out 2 green eyes and a pink mouth piece for him.  When he was through cutting paper he put glue all over his plate!  He loves glue as much as he loves cutting paper.  Now he was ready to put down his cut up pieces of paper on the plate.  Once he was through with that (I helped a little) he glued the eyes, nose, and mouth on.  We decided at the end to cut 2 black pieces of paper for ears and he glued those on the plate.  Now he had a cute cat craft we could hang up ( after drying) to help decorate the house.

We had fun spending time together and creating his cute cat craft that is now hanging on the front door inside:-)  Hope you and your kids can have some crafting fun too.
