I am a fan of texture. I think it creates depth and interest in an art project. That’s why today’s Halloween craft focuses on creating furry texture on a black cat! Grab your scissors, kids! We will be working on your fine motors skills! Snip, snip!
- black, yellow, white, green or yellow construction paper
- white chalk, oil pastels, or colored pencils
- pipe cleaners (optional for whiskers)
- Print out my black cat halloween template or draw your own cat eyes, nose, ears, and face.
- Trace, cut, and assemble the cat’s face.
- We used chalk to make the cat’s pupils, whiskers, and mouth. Colored pencils or oil pastels would work too!
- Cut slits for texture around the cheeks and between the ears to simulate hair.
- Bend the slits forwards and backwards to create depth.
Continue to work on your child’s fine motor skills by hopping over to see our Christmas tree textured craft. We even have a fine motor craft for spring. Both are worth pinning for later! Stay tuned for more texture craft fun!
As with all of our freebies, this is a personal/classroom use product only. It is not for commercial use.
