Whether you are looking for a fun project to work on with your children at home, or with your students in a classroom setting, this activity is just what you’re looking for.

Here are the supplies you need:

  • Free printable coloring page (the download link is located at the bottom of this post).
  • Markers, crayons or colored pencils
  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Follow these easy steps to create your own kitty.

Start by printing out the template onto white printer paper or cardstock. If you are using standard printer paper, I would definitely recommend mounting the final project onto a piece of construction paper.

The next step is to grab your favorite art supplies and let your imagination go crazy! You can color in the dog the typical cat colors or feel free to get as creative as you’d like!

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.

Once all the shapes have been colored in, cut out each piece of the cat using scissors. This is not just a fun activity but also a great opportunity for kids to work on their scissor skills.

It is now time to assemble the kitty! Grab some construction paper and start gluing the pieces of the cat together. I have included a small diagram of the final cat at the bottom of the page to reference.

And now your adorable cat craft is complete! Whether it ends up being displayed on your refridgerator or on the classroom wall, it is sure to bring a smile to anyone who sees it.
