Paper plate black cat

Paper plate craft is a great way to get your child thinking creatively about shapes. Did you know you can make a spooky black cat for Halloween out of one paper plate? Go figure!

What you need:

  • 1 x paper plate
  • black paint & paint brush
  • 2 x googly craft eyes
  • 1 x small pink pom pom
  • scissors
  • glue

Number of players:


Paint the paper plate black.

Out of the flat centre part of the plate, cut a large arch. The outer section will be the cat’s body (see video).

From the plain bit of the arch you cut out, make a head (circle) and two ears (two triangles).

From the fluted section, cut a small arc for a tail.

Out of whatever is left over, cut six thin slivers to use as whiskers.

Glue it all together to make your cat.

Add your eyes and nose.
