Arty Crafty Kids | Art | Cool Cat Newspaper Art for Kids | A fun recycled cat art project using recycled newspaper and magazines. With the help of a free template kids can make a cat that can strike multiple cool poses!

I am a self-confessed cat lady and admire their poise and multiple (or split) personalities, for they can be playful, fierce, dopey, aloof and incredibly loving all in one day (or sometimes within minutes). And with Halloween approaching, black cats have been taking over my social media feeds and I couldn’t help but notice that for a cat lady, there’s a distinct absence of cat crafts on Arty Crafty Kids. Well, not anymore! This Cool Cat Newspaper Art Project for Kids is not just any old cat…

It’s a cat with attitude.

A cat with multiple personalities.

A cool cat.

And with its simple shapes made from recycled materials, this cat can strike a pose!

STEP-BY-STEP Cool Cat Tutorial

Step 1: Download our free printable found towards the end of the post!

And get the black stock card ready!

Why black card? well, the contrast of the prints and colours will make the cat stand out and I love that it’s not a black cat, but can be perceived as an inverted one…especially when the design includes bright green eyes!

Step 2: Cut out the basic shapes of the template and then trace around the shapes onto newspaper or an old magazine.

Step 3: Encourage the Arty Crafty Kids to use different coloured paper or prints, exploring patterns and contrasting colours.

Within the magazine, pay attention to the images of sofas and soft furnishings, clothes and nature images. More often than not, amazing textures, patterns, and colours can be found within these items/backdrops, that will depth and vibrancy to the Cool Cat projects.

Step 4: Assemble the cool cat ontp the piece of black card and secure with PVA glue.

Different poses can be created with a simple twist and turn of the main body and head (see the video above).

Get creative. We’ve demonstrated how this template can be used to create 4 cat poses, can the Arty Crafty Kids make anymore?

Perhaps they can ditch the template and put together their own cats!
