Paper Cat

Paper Cat (Kat Nickola)

1.    Cut four big strips about a finger wide, along the length of a piece of construction paper, and cut four small strips across the width of a piece of construction paper.

“Try wavey lines and different colors, or add eyes, whiskers and paws!”

3.    Glue, or staple, the tips of each star together to form two balls. The big one is your cat’s body, and the small one is its head.
