This adorable cat is made by tracing your child’s hand, but have them leave their fingers together and the thumb outstretched (like a pair of mittens).
The hand print is at the bottom of the body of the cat, like he’s sitting on a window or on someplace. The thumb becomes the tail sticking out. Add a circle for the head and two small triangles for the ear, small circles for the eyes and some whiskers and you’re all set!
Black paper makes for great Halloween cats. A wonderful way to preserve those little hands that grow so quickly, too!
