This is a really fun craft project that is not too messy and does not take very long. It also lets you use your imagination to create a whole farmyard of different animals using the same technique.
What you will need:
A4 or US Letter size card – color of your choice
Marker pens or crayons
Cut a strip from the long side of your piece of card. See the photo for the guide. This will become the body of your kitten.
At one end of the strip of card make a fold part way along the strip and cut two scalloped shapes as pictured. At the other end of the piece of card make another fold a bit closer to the end. This will be the tab that we use to stick to the foot flap to create the circular body shape.
On the foot end, draw little curved claw shapes. Practice rolling the strip into a circular shape and hold it in place so you can see how it goes together. Make note of which side of the card you want to draw your stripes so they will be seen when the body is glued in place. Draw the stripes on. I used a black marker and white crayon but you can use whatever you like.
Using your glue stick join the tab to the foot piece. On the leftover card, draw the face and tail adding the eyes, nose and stripes etc.
Cut them out and glue them to the body.
Your cute kitten is now finished. Now start on the rest of the farmyard.
