February is perfect for crafting with the kids. There are so many fun winter and Valentine crafts to fill those long, cold winter days.
When it comes to kids Valentine’s Day crafts, heart crafts are always very popular.
You can use cut out paper hearts to make all kinds of fun animals, including this adorable heart cat craft.
This simple heart craft is a fun Valentine’s Day craft for kids.
It would also be a fun cat craft for any time of the year.
Heart Cat — Simple Heart Craft
- Construction Paper
- Glue Stick
For toddlers and young preschoolers you may want to have the pieces cut out already.
Older preschoolers can work on scissor skills by cutting out their own hearts. You can simply draw the shapes for them to cut out.
And, of course, older children will have fun folding the paper and cutting out their own hearts for this craft.
For each cat craft you will need to cut out:
- One large heart for the body
- One smaller heart for the head
- Three small hearts for the eyes and nose
- Two triangles for ears
- A tail
Turn the large heart upside down and glue the slightly smaller heart on top for the cat’s head.
Glue on the triangle ears, heart eyes and nose.
Finally, glue the tail onto the large heart body.
Once your child has their cat glued together, they can use crayons to add details like a mouth, whiskers, toes, etc.
This heart cat craft is fun for kids to make. They may also want to try making a few other heart animals.
